    Did not have any ketchup in the house mixed 1/3 cup tomato paste with white vinegar and sugar. My husband gives it 41/4 stars.

    I didn't have the soup so used same amount of beef broth which was fine because husband does not like onions. It was SO good. Love the flavor of the ground beef and it was so simple. I will make this again for sure.

    Next time I'll skip the ketchup but did saute mushrooms to go with it along with mash potatoes and corn

    Would prefer a roux to flour/water mixture. Reconstituted onion soup mix worked out well (I ad it on hand). Easy recipe, but the flour and water mixture just didn't work for me

    My husband and daughter both totally enjoyed this meal. For the bread crumbs, used Panko Parmesan (gluten free crumbs) Also... I did modify the gravy .. After removing browned meat from pan, sautéed 1/2 onion, 2 cloves garlic and Several mushrooms sliced (toward end of sauté.) I removed the sautéed veggies, then dumped the hamburger fat Out of the pan and wiped much Of the excess fat out with paper towel, but didn’t wash pan in order to leave some of the crusty bits and flavor for making the gravy. On the still hot skillet melted 2 T butter, added flour water mixture ( 4 T flour wisked together with 3/4 -1c + water) , heat to a simmer stirring with whisk ( I used an immersion blender to get all the flour very smooth) add in the remaining onion soup from can, (adjust Flour/water to desired thickness) add 2 -3tsp Worcestershire sauce, 1 rounded tsp grey poupon spicy mustard, salt and pepper, and then Also add back in the vegetable sauté mixture. Once the gravy is blender place cube steaks back into pan, spoon gravy over top and let simmer for 7 minutes. Stir gravy occasionally to keep from sticking and cook until reached desired thickness. Served with wide egg noodles, steamed broccoli and fresh corn. This recipe is a definite keeper.
