    Another one that drove Dog crazy. I often wonder what goes through his mind...eat-eat-eat...shoe-shoe-shoe...run-run-run.

    DH is still raving about this one! I used bullion and white wine as that was what was on hand. I also forgot the garlic, didn't read down far enough so used garlic powder at the last minute instead of minced. I made the gravy ahead of time using shiitakes and criminis. After cooking the cube steaks I poured the gravy over the top and cooked for about 15 minutes more on the stove top. Thanks for great recipe.

    Delicious! I used some very thin cut round steak instead of cube steak. I was going to leave out the burgundy because I didn't have any on hand, but the gravy was a little flat and bland without it. A splash of white wine fixed that. I can't wait to try it again when I have the proper ingredients ready. I served it over white rice. Even my very picky 4yo thought it was good and my husband was ready to lick the pan!

    We've been craving a good dish of Smother Steak and I am so glad I chose this dish to prepare instead of my usual. The wine and the fresh mushrooms were a great change up. Easy to follow directions and simple ingredients - just what we needed GREAT COMFORT FOOD. Served with potatoes & roasted carrots. Thanks Bliss for a wonderful recipe I'll be glad to fix again.

The little cutie here is Martha, the sweet lady I was blessed to have worked with for two years. Martha passed away on 12/3/08. Martha and I would ride endlessly during the holidays, and she would sing carols and laugh and just enjoy it so much. I know this holiday season, she will be with her brother, son and mother and finally be "home". Martha, I still love you more. ******* I'm a simple girl, born of good stock. I'm the mamma of two spoiled tuxedo cats: Beauregard and Patches (the one who's been drinking eggnog). They love cuddling together, and this picture is taken on my hall steps. I'm a firm believer in LOA. I need to get more dedicated to daily practice. Below is a film that explains it, and is wonderful. I highly recommend it. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* This is Beau enjoying his computer. He's quite good at deleting messages, making the desktop disappear (as is his brother). Their path to the window is over my keyboard. <IMG SRC="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/126104/PuterCat.jpg"> This is Patches, planning his strategy to keep me awake, but cuddling his sock baby and trying to be cute to throw me off. <IMG SRC="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/126104/RugRat.jpg"> Beau works a long week. He's relaxing finally, after a beer. <IMG SRC="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/126104/StickUp.jpg">mnhj BTW, "mnhj" means "I just walked across our keyboard once again and left you a present." ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ I'm trying to figure out my new rating system. As of 10/1/06, this is how I'll rate recipes. I will be changing some previous reviews. 5*~~Outstanding recipe--the best of the best here. 4*~~Something I find delicious; will make often; would serve to guests. 3*~~Something I might fix again; enjoyed; needed something added before I try again 2*~~Something I could finish, but would never try again, regardless of additions or subtractions 1*~~Could not finish it; would not even make possums suffer with this (I haven't found many of these--only one of my own that I grabbed from the internet!!) <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/berriesblinkie.gif" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/200_artistrichardneuman-art-prints_.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y227/vjuhl/MEPcookathon.jpg">
