Meat lovers will LOVE this quick weeknight steak dish!
Mushrooms and onions are the perfect compliment to steak, plus they add bulk without added calories or fat. A great example of using steak as a condiment.
Originally when I made this steak dish, it was intended for my steak sandwich recipe, but since this is also so good over rice, I felt it deserved it's own post. (Steak and cheese sandwich recipe coming tomorrow!) Serve this with a salad and you have a complete meal!
Have all your vegetables sliced and ready before you start cooking, this takes only minutes to make once everything is prepped. Enjoy : )

- 1/2 lb thin cut beef round sandwich steaks
- 1/2 large onion, sliced into rings
- 1/2 tsp olive oil
- 8 oz sliced mushrooms
- 4 seconds cooking spray (I like Smart Balance)
- garlic powder to taste
- salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
Slice beef into thin strips. Season with salt, garlic powder and fresh pepper to taste. Heat a large skillet over high heat. When the skillet is very hot, spray with cooking spray and add half of the beef. Cook one minute, then turn steak and cook an additional 30 seconds. Set aside in a large dish.
Spray the skillet again and when it gets hot add the remaining steak, cooking one minute, then turning and cooking 30 seconds more. Add remaining steak to the dish. Return skillet to heat and spray once again with cooking spray; add onions and season with salt and pepper. Cook one minute, then turn and cook onions an additional 30 seconds or until onions are golden.
Lower heat to medium and add 1/2 tsp olive oil to the skillet, add mushrooms, salt and pepper and lightly spray the top of the mushrooms with cooking spray. Cook 1 1/2 minutes, then turn mushrooms and cook another minute and a half. Add to dish with steak and onions and stir to combine. Serve over rice.
