Reviewed pan seared strip steak with green peppercorn sauce and salt-baked potatoes

Jun 2, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Recipe was wonderful. Didn't use tarragon and was still terrific. But retrieving the recipe wasn't so terrific. Only half of it printed. Many words were left out, and why don't we have the option of the 3x5 or 4x6 print out style? This has been happening for many of us and becoming very frustrating. Hundreds of us still use the file boxes, as they...

Very good. I've been making this recipe except for the gravy, for 25 years. Why doesn't food network offer the 3x5 and 4x6 card options anymore? Hundreds of us still use our filing boxes because they're more condensed, easier to use, and takes up less room for storing....annoying.
