My hubby and kids really liked this steak. It came out very tender. To me it was lacking flavor, and I just didn't care too much for the cooking method-the steak was simmered in liquid basically. All considered it was an easy recipe to prepare, and my family enjoyed it.

This turned out really great. I needed to thicken the liquid from the onions a little, and the steak was a little tough for our tastes, but that's just stuff that requires tweaking. I'd cook for a shorter time, with less water next time, or possibly, conversely, use a little more water with a longer cook time. But it's a great recipe, anyway!
