  • 14 oz. penne pasta (or other pasta)
  • 6 Tbsp. butter, divided
  • 16 oz. sirloin steak, cut into small pieces
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh parsley, minced
  • 4 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 tsp. Johnny’s Seasoning Salt
  • 1 tsp. Johnny’s Steak Seasoning
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup water or broth (if needed)


  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside (toss with oil to prevent sticking).
  2. Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a large, skillet over medium-low heat. Continue to heat the butter until it’s barely browned.
  3. Turn the heat up to medium-high and add the steak pieces and Johnny’s Steak Seasoning – do not stir or shake for 30-45 seconds.
  4. Flip the steak pieces and cook for another minute or two, until the steak is done to your liking.
  5. Remove from heat and keep warm.
  6. Melt the remaining butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and parsley – sauté for about a minute, being careful not to burn or brown the garlic.
  7. Add the flour and Johnny’s Seasoning Salt and sauté for another minute or two.
  8. Add the milk slowly, whisking to incorporate with the flour/butter mixture.
  9. Simmer for 10-15 minutes until the sauce is bubbling and has thickened slightly. Add the cheese and stir until melted.
  10. Stir the pasta together with the cheese sauce and add the steak.
  11. Stir in extra water or broth if the consistency needs a little thinning out.
  12. Season with more Johnny’s Seasoning Salt and seasoned pepper. Serve warm.
