Quick and delicious! I also added some extra water. Thanks for sharing!

We've been making this recipe for decades, and it's a family favorite. However, we've always added extra water. It will help with the dryness of the meat. This is a great recipe for an electric skillet.

I thought this was OK. I didn't really care for the flavor,it seemed to be missing something, and the steaks were overcooked, with a dry texture after 1 hour of simmering. I did not deviate form the recipe, I made it as is with no substitutions. Sorry, I will not be making again.
