Hey everybody, I'm fairly new here still and just want to say hello. I posted here a while ago, but it has been so long since my last one. I hope to talk with you all soon. However, what I did want to ask it what everyone does with leftover steak. My family eats a good amount of it, but we always cook too much, resulting in either leftovers or a treat for the dogs. I need some advice, thanks.

Garlic-Mushroom Sauce:

1 lb. small button mushrooms
6 Tbsp. unsalted butter or
margarine
16 medium garlic cloves,
peeled, cook whole
salt to taste
1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 c. Burgundy wine
2 c. canned beef broth

Using a damp paper towel, wipe mushrooms and set aside.
Working quickly, pour oil from skillet. Place skillet over
medium-high heat. Melt butter or margarine in skillet. Add
mushrooms, garlic, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Stir
to blend. Saute, tossing mushrooms and garlic constantly until
well browned, about 4 minutes. Add wine and swirl pan. Scrape
up browned bits from bottom and cook, stirring quickly until
wine is reduced to a glaze, about 5 minutes. Stir in beef
stock and reduce to a glaze, about 10 minutes. (The whole
garlic cloves acquire a mild, nut-like taste during cooking
that gives a delightful flavor bonus.)
