This was easy and pretty flavorful. It had been over 30 years since I've had cubed steaks.

My first reaction was, "Good but not great." I thought it tasted better as warmed up leftovers the next day. I pretty much followed the recipe, just padded a small can of tomato sauce with some ketchup so left out the sugar.

Excellent. The family loved it. I suggest leaving out the sugar.

We had this for dinner tonight and thought it was very good. I followed the directions exactly except I did not add sugar to the tomato sauce as we don't like sweet spaghetti sauce. I would definitely make this again.

This recipe is very good and was enjoyed even by my son who is a very picky eater. I used Ritz crackers in place of saltines.

I used progressive Italian breadcrumbs instead of saltine crackers and basil...We loved it would definitely make it again. I think I will try this with chicken next time too=)
