I make this about once a month. I wish I could get the coating to stay on the meat better.

I rated this three stars b/c I think it would be better with cube steak. The gravy was good though!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 27, 2010

I will use cube steak next time, breading didn't stay on meat but there is a trick to it...google how and gravy was wonderful, just make sure you get all the lumps out or it won't taste good! I learned how to make gravy years ago, pretty easy. Very tasty recipe!
