Delish! I couldn't stop eating it! The cola made the sauce very tasty and just a little sweet, which I thought was wonderful. I did make a few changes based off of the ingredients I had on hand. Instead of salting the steaks, I added 1 tsp of Lawry's season salt to the flour mixture before dredging the steaks. To the veggie mixture, I add 2 chopped celery stalks and 2 chopped carrots, since I like a lot of veggies. After sauteeing the veggies, I sprinkled 2 tsps of the leftover flour mixture on them just to ensure the sauce wouldn't be too runny. I also added a dash of Montreal Steak Seasoning at the end to give it a little more salty flavor. This is definitely a keeper!!!!
Made this last night for dinner and I must say it tastes very similar to my FIL recipe witht he addition of the cola. The cola gave it a bit of a sweet taste but it also tenderized the meat so it cut with a fork. I really enjoyed this comfort food. I haven't had a good cube steak in years and as we got a 1/2 a cow just before summer this is a great recipe to keep on hand to use to make the cube steaks and a few other less tender cuts of meat. Served this with Recipe #409649<br/>. and fresh cut asparagus. Thank you for sharing. Made for ZWT 2011
