THIS RECIPE came from a 1950s television program called Kay's Kitchen. I gave it a try, and my family gave it rave reviews. It makes a colorful entree served with fresh green beans...or try French fries - the sauce is great for dipping! -Ray Sholes, Butler, Pennsylvania

"Very delicious! I made it for the harvest crew and huge compliment from my husband before I even asked if it was good. I needed to tell my little girls no on seconds until the entire crew had been fed. I served it over egg noodles. Very good and have made it numerous times since. The only difference I did was cut the meat into pieces before breading and browning and then cooked in the crock pot. Very tender."

"I will definitely make this again to use up the round steak I have in the freezer. Loved the sauce. This recipe was very easy to put together. Our little girls actually asked for more meat during our meal. That rarely happens."
