First thing you should know about me when it comes to this recipe is that I do NOT like steak.  I know, I’m a little weird but I’ve never liked it and I never eat it.  Which is why it has taken me this long to finally make this Cheesy Steak Skillet even though I had been eyeing it for a few months.  The rumor going around was that it was delicious so I finally gave in and fixed it.  I knew if I didn’t like, at least my hubby would.

Did I mention that this is totally 80 Day Obsession approved!?

Did I also mention that I in week 1 of Round 2 of this amazing program?  I’ll be sharing my review and progress photos soon so stay tuned!
