  1. I made this exactly like the recipe said and even put peas in the mashed potatoes and it turned out spectacular! The meat was so tender and flavorful. I was looking for a quick recipe with cubed steak and this was perfect. Thank you.

  2. This recipe was AMAZING! Quick and delicious. I didn’t have the whole onion, so I used frozen chopped peppers and onions that I had in my freezer. Also instead of beef broth I used water and added a few seasonings. I read how some people thought the beef broth was too salty. I also seasoned the steaks with garlic salt before covering in flour. The end result was PERFECT! My husband loved it! This will definitely be in the weeknight dinner rotation.

  3. Two things I changed. First, I wasn’t going to make a gravy with a 1/2 cup of vegetable oil, so I poured it out. Then is has you adding the broth at the same time as the onions. The onions looked caramelized in the picture, and I like them that way. So, I added the onions (with a little pat of butter) and cooked them some, then I added the broth and onion soup mix.
    My Husband, Son and I all loved it!
