My mom used to make this for all of us and I still make it today. It is one of our favorites and it's cheep to make. I don't know for sure how long it takes to make--times are a guess.

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!
