    A good technique, but like so many other reviewers I had to add seasonings. It would have been quite bland otherwise. My changes were to saute the onion in the pan first, add garlic, cumin, and Italian seasoning to the flour, to use beef soup base rather than bullion, and to add a dash of Kitchen Bouquet to the gravy. Its a good way to treat a tough cut of meat, but don't expect much flavor unless you adapt the seasoning.

    I loved this dish, both for the taste and the ease. This recipe produced a tender and delicious steak that was absolutely devoured. The only change I made was to add some Montreal Steak spice and as suggested by another reviewer, kept some of the flour to thicken the gravy at the end. This will be made again for sure. Thx.

    Amazing my family loved it. Instead of beef broth I used better than bouillon the beef flavor.

    So good and so easy! I only added a little garlic, a touch of Sherry, and a dash of cayenne. Perfect!

    I added sliced mushrooms, some garlic and worcestershire sauce to taste. This was wonderful. DH kept saying how great it was between mouthfuls! I served the sliced cube steaks over hot chili noodles. A winner in my book. Thanks.
