A must try recipe

You don't see me posting recipes on here often... or ever. My husband likes what he likes and only occasionally does trying something new bless him. Usually the recipe would need to fall into a meat or pasta catergory. Even better if it's both. However, when I saw this recipe from on Megan's blog I knew it would be a winner! We LOVE this meal! We tried it a few weeks ago and then made it again for some friends earlier in the week. So for those of you who haven't seen this recipe yet here it is! Give it a try this weekend. In AZ it's perfect grilling weather!

*side note- we found the gravy to be more of a dipping sauce...not a drench all over your meal type. Just our preference though.

1/4 c. minced green onions
1/4 c. bourbon

Yum! That looks good... I can't wait to try it! Keith doesn't like trying new recipes either...must be a Daukas thing! :~) I'm sure he'll like this, though. I'm pretty much safe with any form of steak!

It has to be a Daukas thing . . . meat, pasta (although I count pizza in this Italian category) or eggs. :) But this recipe sounds great! Thanks for sharing. I know Scott would love this! Love J

Sorry guys. Jeff is the cook in our house and he LOVES to try new recipes and add his own unique touches. Don't forget that he had to learn how to prepare things from scratch when he was a restaurant manager. I am the one who is like the other Daukas boys!! At least I keep the streak going in all four families. : ) It does sound good though...
