Absolutely delish, however, I had to embellish the recipe a bit because I have made a recipe similar to this and found the gravy lacking a bit. I could not find cremini's anywhere and ended up using standard white mushrooms but I also added 1 TBS of dry Lipton's Onion & Mushroom Soup mix to the mushrooms after they were browned. Then I added my cream but instead of straight cream I added some powdered cultured buttermilk to it, which gave it the much needed "tang and richness" these kinds of gravies need. Served with mashed potatoes, garden peas and garden beans............this is a KEEPER!

Every bite was so enjoyable. Its spicy... its creamy... and oooh so good. I am a big pepper fan So I used the 4 tbs and it was perfect. This makes it into my top 5 favorite recipes of all time. Thank you!

Very good! 4 out of 5 stars - just beacuse it was WAY too 'peppery' for my family. I will be making this recipe again and again, but will be reducing the cracked pepper to 1 tablespoon. We get a beef butchered every year - and there are always lots of cube steaks left over (and not many different ways to cook them!). Really enjoyed this recipe - I will be adding it to my 'favorites' list!

OH WOW! This gravy is AMAZING and the spiciness of the pepper on the steak really sets off the gravy well. I used a little less salt, maybe 1/2 tablespoon and about 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of fresh cracked pepper (my hand got tired of cranking, and I didn't think we needed 3-4 tablespoons LOL). It says "1 shallot" but I'm not sure how much shallot that is, mine was HUGE it amounted to at least 3 Tablespoons I put it all in with a wicked grin on my face Mmmm I love shallots! I served this with mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli with lemon juice on it. MMM!! Teddy's Daddy was wiggling his feet (which means he's REALLY enjoying his food) and going Mmmm Mmmm every couple of minutes LOL I really loved this too! He asked if there was more gravy... there wasn't.. if you're going to use this with your steaks AND with your mashed potatoes you might want to double the gravy recipe.

I had a package of 2 cube steaks, so I reduced the ingredients for the meat by half, but made all the sauce to use on potatoes. My husband was disappointed there weren't leftovers! This was a very flavorful meal & easy to make. The cube steaks were very tender. Don't be put off by the pepper, just make sure you use cracked pepper, not ground. If you are worried about the pepper - use less because you can always add more to taste. This recipe will be added to our rotation. Thank you!

This was good but I will make some changes next time. Too much pepper! And I love pepper. I think I'll cut it in half next time. I doubled the sauce but don't think that's necessary as I threw a lot out. Overall a very yummy meal but not really economical when you factor in the 1.75 ounce jar of McCormick pepper at $4.39!

I used fat-free half and half and lean cube steaks, for an incredibly delicious and not-so-sinful dinner. Easy, peasy, and wonderful.

I did not measure the pepper, but I don't think I used 3-4 T. I did use a lot though. These were really delicious. I think this would be really good just using extra lean hamburger and maybe a little more tender. I also used half-and-half instead of heavy cream. Flavor was excellent.
