(Picture for illustration only)

In today's busy world, it is still possible to serve your family a delicious home cooked meal in a matter of minutes. The next time you are in a hurry and tempted to turn to the "fast food drive-thru" lane, give these recipes a try. Tenderloin Steaks with Portobello Mushroom Sauce is a quick and easy entree. The Onion-Potato Au Gratin takes about 15 minutes and would be a great companion to these steaks. Add a bagged salad from the produce section for a tasty and quick meal.

2 (1/4 lb each)beef tenderloin steaks
1 cup beef broth, divided
1 tsp flour
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp catsup
1 tsp steak sauce
1/2 tsp ground mustard
1/4 lb baby portobello mushrooms, sliced
dash of fresh ground black pepper
1/8 tsp salt, optional
1 tbsp chives, optional

Coat a large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Over medium-high heat, brown the steaks on both sides. Remove from pan, keeping warm.
Reduce the heat under the skillet to medium and stir in 1/2 cup of the beef broth, loosening up the browned bits on the pan. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until the liquid is reduced by half. Combine the flour and remaining 1/2 cup of beef broth whisking until smooth. Whisk into the skillet. Add the Worcestershire sauce, catsup, and steak sauce along with the ground mustard. Bring the sauce mixture to a boil.
Once sauce starts to boil, return the steaks to the skillet. Add the sliced mushrooms. Cook 4 to 6 minutes on each side until the steaks reach the doneness you prefer. Sprinkle with the pepper. Also sprinkle with salt and/or chives, if using.

3/4 cup water
1/2 cup French onion sour cream dip
1 cup mashed potato flakes
1 tbsp chopped green chiles, optional
1 1/2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Additional shredded Cheddar cheese for topping

Spray an 8-inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Stir in the dip and mix well. Remove from the heat and add the potato flakes and the green chiles, if using. Mix together well.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared pie plate. Top with the melted butter and the 1/4 cup of cheese. Broil 4 to 6-inches from the heat for less than 5 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown. Remove from broiler and sprinkle with additional cheese.
Cut into 4 wedges for serving.
