The Search is Over and Steak Paprika

*Insert cheesy 80s mix tape*

"And I'm never gonna let you go, I'm gonna hold you in my arms forever . . . . "

That's right folks, the search is over! I'm so delighted! I have finally, after years of frustration, found the perfect dishwasher soap. I've just been dealing with white spots, film, flakies, globs and smeared dishes forever, and now my search is over. Dishwasher detergent is expensive, and I've tried every brand on the Target shelves believing their grease fighting promises only to be disappointed. New soap, amazing! Smells good, cleans great, no gunk and here's the kicker - child safe! Yeah, no dangerous warning on the back, all natural and affordable. Can you guess what brand it is? If you want to know more, email me or leave a comment w/ your email and I'll let you in on the secret. Rejoice!

And since my dishwasher can handle every crusty dish I put in there, let me share this fabulous recipe with you. My husband loves this steak over pasta dish, and the paprika makes it spicy good. You could serve it over rice, but penne pasta is my fave. Don't go skimpy on the mushrooms, they "make" this dish in my opinion.

Husband Rating: 5 stars

Father-in-law stamp of approval recipe

2-3 Tbsp. butter

4 4oz. flank steaks

1 cup sliced mushrooms

4 Tbsp. diced onion

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp. paprika

2 Tbsp. flour

1/2 cup sour cream

1 cup beef broth

3 cups cooked pasta

Dash of black pepper

Cook pasta according to package directions. Melt butter over medium heat in a skillet. Cook steaks in butter 5-7 minutes, or until desired doneness. Remove steak, but save the drippings in the pan. In drippings saute mushrooms, onion and garlic. Stir in paprika and dash of pepper. When mushrooms are tender stir in beef broth, and stir over medium heat for 2 minutes. In a separate bowl stir together flour and sour cream. Whisk in to pan and stir until smooth. Slice steak into thin strips. Pour mushroom sauce over noodles and top with sliced steak. Enjoy!
