Mock steaks

 - Kris Walahoski RD LMNT, Overton, NE

"As a busy mom I’m working, helping with livestock and chasing kids so this recipe is a simple family favorite that pairs with any side dish.  I like to make large batches and individually wrap and freeze them for later use."

  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 8 oz tomato sauce
