      Most excellent recipe! I had no problems at all with this recipe. It was fantastic! My husband loved it and said this was a perfect meal. I made a white gravy to have over the steaks. This recipe is a keeper and one I will make again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      Wonderful easy recipe!! My whole family loves it. We put brown gravy with some mushrooms on top to juice it up a bit.

      I agree with the previous reviewer, the mixture was a little too dry and I knew it before I dipped in the egg and cracker crumbs so I added some evaporated milk but if someone is not purchasing lean hamburger, this is the perfect recipe because there is enough fat content to make it juicy and not dry. I also added a little A-1 sauce to the meat for flavor but that is a personal prefence. Thanks for posting.
