very good and easy to make, the mushroom gravy with a little added garlic powder and black pepper was very tasty. I got 4 lbs of cube steak and easily feed 5 1/2 (my daughter doesn't eat very much) with mashed potatoes and green bean casserole as side dishes. I used roasted garlic flavored bread crumbs instead of the crackers, it gave it a very good flavor. I would definately recommend just turning the steaks once and cooking the entire 6 minutes on each side, flipping them over and over causes all the spices to fall off and stick to the pan.

Hugely wonderful. I'm a California transplant, so my husband is always happy when I make anything that tastes like Texas cooking! The steak turned out tender and was done about medium when cooked 6 mins. on each side. I like mine a little more done, I might do it a little longer next time. The "gravy" was wonderful. I trimmed the fat from the steak (we used sirloin), used low-fat milk, and used 98% fat-free soup, to make it more digestible by my California-educated stomach. Really a wonderful recipe, so easy, and now my husband is happy I'll cook fried steak for him. :) Highly recommended!
