I was looking for some thing different to do with round steak besides making Swiss Steak, when I found this recipe. I found it fairly easy to make. However, I did have to keep adding milk to get the dumplings form correctly. I do not not how much more I added as I would add a little and see if they would hold together. We were not able to eat the dish right away but when we did, it was still really good. Things that reheat well are a must in this household. The flavor was great. The meat moist and tender. I think that for us that we would try to make more gravy and since my husband loves mushrooms that they maybe a future added ingredient. A keeper for our house. Thank you for posting.

While the flavor of the finished product for this recipe is great comfort food, I had to reduce my star rating due to the missing milk amount for the dumplings. I had halved the recipe and used about 1/2 cup to stir together until just moistened. My breadcrumbs were homemade and created from a leftover roasted garlic baguette. Yum. Hubby will come home to a good, hot meal after a long day out in our blizzard conditions.***UPDATE***after my review, the recipe poster amended the recipe to include 1/2 cup milk for the dumplings. Since I had halved the recipe and used this amount before the correction, I guess my dumplings were more moist than they should have been.
