Easy Country Style Steak

Perfect for when you need something easy that the kids will love. My kids would beg for this with rice or potatoes and, of course, bread to soak up the gravy. Certainly may use sliced onions rather than chopped.Note: After some of the reviews I realized that even though it is quick to put together the cooking does take some time so I have changed the title.

Ingredients Nutrition

This is a very tasty and rich comfort food dish. I could not find cube steaks at my local grocer, so I substituted beef top round cutlets. The meat was tender with an intensely beefy, thick gravy. I used 2 tsp. Kitchen Bouquet but should have only used 1 tsp., as it made the gravy too salty for DH and my taste. DD enjoyed it emensely. She couldn't shovel it into her little, newly teeth-populated mouth fast enough, gobbling up every last bit. I served it over rice with a side of roasted asparagus. This dish is definitely easy to prepare but not as "quick" as the recipe title implies. Thanks for sharing! (Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #38)

This was good, but after simmering for over an hour, my steaks were still a tough (needed a knife to cut them). I added 1 tsp of the kitchen bouquet; never used it before so I wasn't sure what it was supposed to add as far as flavor wise (salty, smokey, etc.) Served over buttered noodles (would have preferred potatoes but 4yr DS doesn't eat them and didn't want to make extra food).
