This was a good use of inexpensive cube steak. The flavor was not at all coffee-like, or my dear BF would have balked. He didn't. We're not gravy folks, so I didn't make the end step. It really was pretty good. Mine was done in only about 6 hrs on low so pay attention to your crockpot. I know you're supposed to be able to leave crocks alone but, mine seems to cook things faster than most cooking times instruct.
