A simple-to-make recipe that's also inexpensive! Makes the house smell wonderful as it cooks, and tastes great on those chilly fall nights. We typically serve this over cooked egg noodles with a tossed green salad, but it would be nice over rice, as well. Enjoy!

I took the advice of some other reviewers and spiced this dish up a bit. Instead of just the regular diced tomatoes, I used the Del Monte brand with Garlic and Onions. I used the alloted amount of Italian seasoning and this dish turned out AMAZING! Served with some fried green tomatoes, I almost want to say that this was the perfect dish! Read More

It was very bland. I had to throw it out and start all over:(. I added 1/2 of a bell pepper 2 more Tbsp. Italian seasoning and 1 Tbsp. garlic powder to it and it came out wonderful! Read More

It is Yummy. Great with Mash Potatoes. I didn't have any zucchini will try this when I get some in the summer. I cooked this in my slow cooker for about 4hrs. Read More

Being half Italian anytime I see the ingredient "italian seasoning" I automatically add minced garlic too. I sauteed the zucchini in a seperate pan but followed the original recipe and added garlic otherwise - simple inexpensive and yummy. Will make again! Read More

Nice simple dinner, a different idea for cubed steak, & tasted V. Good! I ommited the diced tomatoes & had mixed veggies on the side instead of zucchini. I also added about 1/4 cup water to the tomato sauce to make the sauce thinner (the flour thickens it nicely). My hubbie said it was "just like mom's".. that sounds like success to me! will definitely make again. Read More

My husband and I were housesitting last New Year's Eve. The house was on the water and Maine and we decided to spend the evening alone. Wanting an easy recipe we found this one and tried it -- we loved it. I think we ended up burning the tomato sauce a little but it made all the better. We've renamed this "New Year's Beef." Read More

DELICIOUS. I added some garlic to the mix and didn't cook it quite an hour (we were hungry!) but the cube steak turns out very tender. Will definitely make again. Served over whole wheat spaghetti. Read More
