Steak Tips with Peppered Mushroom Gravy

Juicy sirloin and buttery egg noodles are tossed together in an incredible mushroom gravy creating the perfect comfort food for a chilly winters night. This excellent recipe comes from Cooking Light. Don’t you just love it when scrumptious food isn’t extremely caloric and fattening? With only 344 calories per serving, you can leave room for that dessert you have been craving! 😉

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! After work yesterday my friend Erin and I celebrated by hitting the gym for a cycling and zumba class. Have you ever tried zumba? Yesterday was the first time I had tried it and it was so much fun! Erin and I got an ab workout from laughing so hard! You want to know the best part about it? The class was lead by a male instructor! He was so precise and you could tell that he loved to dance. The class was held in a room with a huge mirror in the front of the room so that you were able to watch yourself being an idiot! The dance steps were so fast that it made it hard to keep up, especially for a first timer. My husband and I took salsa lessons for our wedding, so luckily I recognized a few of the steps from that….only zumba was like five times faster! I am pretty sure I looked like an idiot, but that’s ok! 🙂

    Made this subbing only the shallots for carmelized yellow onions because I’m not a fan of shallots and it was AMAZING my husband who for 20 years has not had much of an opinion on what I make for dinner has started requesting me to make it again two days later even my boys loved it… this is for sure a new regular in our home. 🙂
