Ok - I added a dash of Worchester sauce and some of my own seasonings including some fresh chopped parsley. I did not use any oil in cooking the steaks as I was cooking in a non-stick pan and only used 1 T of flour in the gravy and it was plenty thick for me. Also I only used about 2-3 T of sauce on my steak, so that might skew the nutritional information.

Not the most lean meal, but definitley ok once in a while. We served it with green beans, salad and butter egg noodles for the family.

The flour would make this a phase 2 recipe. It also needs to be whole wheat flour. You might be able to use arrowroot to thicken it to keep it phase 1.

You also need to use an acceptable "butter" such as Smart Balance or use olive oil or a cooking spray. Otherwise it looks good.

It might be Phase 2, but with the limited amount of flour, I thought it might be acceptable as Phase I.

As for the butter, I still believe that since butter is not a processed food, I would much rather put it in my body rather than Smart Balance which is processed. The limited amount of butter adds to the flavor.

Just my opinion.

Why not saute the onions and mushrooms in olive oil? You could also thicken the gravy with bean flour or an egg yolk.
It looks yummy!

How about tomato paste as a thickener for phase 1?
