"This is a very tasty and quick dish! I usually have the market run the meat thru the cuber to make the meat less tough."

"Just made last night. Absolutely delicious and tender. I did cook longer than stated just to make sure that the round steak was tender, since it is a tough cut of meat. The flavor is great."
