"My husband really liked this. However, don't use steak which is too thin. The first time I used the round steak, but I think boneless chuck would be even better and I will use that next time. Don't overcook it either. Great one-dish dinner and easy to prepare."

"Wow, this recipe is reminiscent of one my mother made back in the 1960s -- it might even be the same recipe! My whole family enjoyed this and I already have requests to make it again."
