Country-Fried Steak with Mushroom Gravy

    The first time I made this I tried it as written and it tastes like a bland fast food diner meal, the gravy was too thin and not enough seasoning or mushrooms. The next time I used 3 cups of mushrooms and added 1/2 an onion to the pan, used whole eggs instead of whites, let the gravy simmer about 15 minutes to reduce it and concentrate the flavor and added more black pepper and garlic. When the gravy was done I added a couple tablespoons of sour cream (off the heat) and it was delicious, but no longer a light recipe

    Good flavor. Added a little more flour to thicken sauce.

    My family loved this dish. I followed the recipe and while making it, I thought it would turn out bland. However, it was VERY tasty. I did have to cook the meat a little longer then 3 minutes on both sides and I had to boil the gravy for some extra time to get it to thicken up a bit more. I will be making this dish again and again.

    The gravy was outstanding with plenty of jazz, however, our sirloin cubed steaks were rather tough to eat. In spite of that, we didn't have any leftovers. We served potatoes and green beans.

    This was really good. I sauteed an onion along with the mushrooms and thought it gave good flavor. I thought the gravy was a little too thin...either it needs to be cooked a lot longer or less liquid should be added. Overall it was very tasty and I will make it again.

    Loved this recipe. Don't have to go to Cracker Barrel for country food. Definitely a great home cooking dinner.

    Yum. Had cubed venison steaks and this was delicious. Used only a cup of beef broth so didn't have the thickening issue some mentioned. Used lots more mushrooms than called for, because why not? Have had better gravies or would've given this 5 stars, a little floury (flourey?) taste I thought but husband and son wanted seconds. I thought herbs as listed were fine. Cooked a little longer than 3 minutes per side, but that just gave it a nice crust. Wish I'd had mashed potatoes to accompany, but will do next time. Husand wants for dinner tomorrow night!
