Updated on September 28, 2011

Hungarian Cubed Steaks were a favorite at my house when I was growing up. This had the added benefit of taking less than 40 mins from start to finish, so it comes in handy in a working family. My good friend Doris, (who served us a great homemade Thanksgiving meal this year) a legendary cook, who earmarked this as a recipe from ‘The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book’ that she definitely wanted to have, so this one is for you Doris,,,, Do Enjoy!
