  1. Good flavor, but the gravy was really thick and my kids wouldn't touch the dish because of it. Next time I make it, I will add more milk and less flour. My husband and I really enjoyed it.
  2. We really liked this alot! I thought the thick gravy was really good, but it would be simple to thin if you felt the need... I will definately make this again my son and my hubby and myself all enjoyed it very much! Thanks for the delicious recipe Bev!
  3. The super thick sauce/gravy seems to make the meat extra tender and flavorful. I don't eat all the gravy that it makes but this is absolutely delicious!
  4. It is a wonderful recipie my family loves it
  5. Perhaps this is something that you need to grow up with we didn't find it at all bland. I has the hearty very beefy flavor that you want that is accented by the garlic (of which you can add as much or little as you like). This is pure "Down On The Ranch" comfort food at it's best. The steak is very tender and almost melts in your mouth and the gravy is rich tasting, I did thin it a bit. It's a keeper. :D


  1. I did not have cube steak so I used hamburgers instead. Still turned out pretty good. It's a keeper.
