Reviews forCube Steaks with Gravy
"This easy and quick crock pot meal is wonderful and totally delicious; perfect for a rainy, chilly evening! I have no negative comments as have others although I like the idea of using the "browning crisps" from browning the cube steaks to make homemade gravy. Thank you for sharing this Judy Long!!"
"It's not a good recipe. The use of 2 packages of artificial gravy makes this a total fail...2 thumbs down"
"I have made this recipe several times - both to the recipe and with my own changes based on what I had on hand. This is a good recipe for the rotation of what's cooking this time of year. Thank you for this recipe. :-)"
"This is just old fashioned Braised Steak & onions"
"I have been making this recipe for years. Ever since I read it in the magazine when it first came out. Delicious and so tender. I do not use all the gravy packs, because my store does not carry all of them. Generally I use the mushroom and brown gravy mix, but then again homemade would be great too !"
"This was not good. Why use packaged gravy when you can easily make your own that tastes good? This was really a disappointment! A previous reviewer stated that it had a processed taste and how correct that individual was. Taste of Home, I am disappointed in you even sending out this recipe. I can't believe the positive reviews and I am a woman who cooks all the time. Kilyena's review tells everyone how to do it the right way."
"Im sorry this was the worst Country Style Steak I've ever had. I should have listened to my intuition about using 3 different gravy packets which tend to give a wierd processed taste. Because it was rated well I decided to give it a try. I recommend skipping the processed gravy packets and just make your own gravy by making a roux and adding equal parts beef broth and milk (1% or 2% is ok) in the same skillet you browned the steaks in until moderately thickened. Pour over steaks, cover with foil and bake on 300 degrees F. for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. If you think you liked this recipe as written, try it this way and you never make it with gravy packets again."
"I made this for Sunday dinner and my family and I loved it. The steaks came out so tender, melt in your mouth, easily cut with your fork! I tenderized the steaks with a metal tenderizer and seasoned them with seasoning salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. I followed the recipe directions, except I used all brown gravy packets, and half an onion. I added the brown gravy mixture in the final hour of cooking after removing the steaks, mixing, then adding the steaks back. I served over egg noodles, but this recipe would also be great over mashed potatoes or rice. Definitely making again soon!"
"Steak was very tender. Gravy was delicious over the steak and mashed potatoes! Very easy. This one is a keeper!"
"Love this recipe. So easy to make. Tastes so good over mashed potatoes."
