Soy sauce really wakes up the flavor of these nicely browned cubed steaks. "I serve this meaty main dish with mixed vegetables and rice or baked potatoes," informs Cathee Bethel, Lebanon, Oregon. "My family loves this meal."

"I did mine a little different. But it still was an absolute hit! Instead of all soy sauce (we're not big on soy), I did 1/2 cup of reduced salt soy sauce and 1/2 cup of worcestershire sauce. 1/2 tsp of garlic powder, 1/2 tsp of minced garlic, 1 tsp of onion powder - and WALA! A Hit with the kids and hubby! Thx for this super fast, ubber delish dish! Oh, and I couldn't wait 30mins (marinate), so I stuck it in the freezer for 15mins, and then grilled it on my George Forman grill - 3mins and done. Awesome, tasty, fast and just a magnificent meal!"

"I loved this variation on cubed steaks. It is definitely one to eat again and it is so easy to make. I used 2/3 c of soy sauce and fresh garlic since I was going to marinade for several hours."

"I have been making this recipe for over 4 years. I think that it is healthier than making chicken fried steak over and over again. My family loves it!"

"Good, easy recipe. I thought that the marinade made the steak much to salt, but my husband enjoyed it. I will definitely use this one again."

"I love this and so did my family. I changed it some..used garlic pepper instead of minced garlic. I only had time to let it marinate for 5 minutes and cooked it on the stove top. I also used drippings and added mushrooms to make a gravy. I was told to make this again soon."
