I have a tendency to follow recipes online, very closely, the first time I try to make them so that's what I did with this on, much to my surprise I even had Montreal steak seasoning(?). I had 3 cups of broth and the milk measured out and I gotta admit, I was quite skeptical that all that broth was going to get absorbed/dissipate appropriately but those measurements were perfect. This turned out exactly as I hoped and although some might say its bland, we would describe the flavors as delicate and subtle. We thought it was delicious and I won't change a thing when I make it again. Paired with a salad it felt like a nice home cooked, well rounded meal.

Made this last night. Definitely like that it was a quick one pot meal. Only used 2 cups of beef broth, (low sodium). Lacked some flavor, maybe because of the low sodium beef. Will definitely give it a try with additional seasonings.

This is a nice quick dinner to have ready in no time. I didn't have milk and just used the beef broth and it was creamy on it's own. It is a recipe that can be easily adjusted with additional flavors if you like-I added Worchestershire, garlic powder. For those that don't care for a heavy tomato sauce based dish, this is a great alternative that is easily adaptable. Will make again, thank you!

I had no steak seasoning but I added 2 dabs of Worcestershire sauce and voila. It's a big hit with the fam.

I changed the liquid to 1.5 cup of broth and 1.5 cup milk. Added onion, mushroom, and green pepper. Garlic powder and Worcestershire sauce, kept the rest the same.

My son's favorite dinner! And we like it too. Everyone has different tastes, and this recipe is super easy to manipulate to accommodate whatever fits your personal tastes. I don't buy Montreal Steak Seasoning, but whatever seasoning you do use will work in this recipe. I typically cut down the broth by a half cup to make it cook faster and makes it creamier, but like I said before, it's easy to adjust to fit your own needs and taste buds!
