This was pretty good though I did find it a little bland. I bought an eye of round roast and had the butcher slice it into 1/4 inch slices so I could leave the meat a little pink in the middle. I think with a few extra seasonings in the flour it would definitely be a five star. But it was quick and easy and the kids loved it! EDIT: Any leftovers make great cold sandwiches with a bit of spicy mustard. EDIT #2: I tried this again with garlic (about 2 TBS), onion powder (1 TBS), paprika (1 TBS), and ancho chile powder (1 tsp) and it was EXCELLENT!
