This is a favorite because I can flour and season the steaks and refrigerate them the night before. The next morning, I put the ingredients in the slow cooker, and the dish is ready when I come home from work.—Sarah Burks, Wathena, Kansas

"I added 1/4 head of raw cabbage, chopped to this recipe. also I didn't have any tomato sauce so I used 2, 14 oz. cans of diced tomatoes. Our son, who doesn't like veggies, had 3 helpings of veggie sauce for every piece of steak. will def make again"

"This is in the slow cooker for the second time this week. So good. All I do differently from original recipe is (based on other reviews) to brown pieces of steak first, plus add a generous dash of Worstershire sauce with the tomato sauce, and it's in the slow cooker on High for 4 hours. It is food that goes down very easily ... and stays down. Oh yeah!"

"I read the reviews and love the suggestions... Some say it tastes "like" pot roast... I have pot roast to use and so I'm assuming this would be an ok substitution for the round steak? has more fat, so should be good?? Gonna try tomorrow. I'm adding a rating even though haven't tried yet.... otherwise, won't let me post.."

"Excellent recipe. I had 1 can of tomato sauce, so I added a good squirt of catsup to make up for the other. Also added a can of stewed tomatoes. This recipe lends itself to making other additions--you could add sliced mushrooms, sliced bell pepper, garlic, etc. Meat is tender and tasty. So EASY!"
