This was excellent, everyone loved it! I did change a couple of things though...I still breaded it, but skipped pan frying and just put it straight in the pan. I also mixed a can of cream of mushroom and a dry packet of onion soup mix to the beef broth. Loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This recipe reminds me of good roast beef. The meat was tender and flavorful. The breading, however, fell off the steaks sometime during cooking and left blobs of unseasoned flour in the gravy. To fix it, I strained out the blobs and onions, and we had a nice, flavorful "roast beef" dinner. Maybe I did something wrong.

I make this with venison steak, and they ALWAYS turn out fall apart tender. Also, I mix the salt and pepper in with the flour, to save a step.

This is one of my husbands favorite meals.

My husband said it was "different" and soon asked for more. Put it in before we left for church and had lunch ready when we got back!
