      Hi Jackie and Donna,

      You'll have to let me know how you like this recipe. I have another I'll be posting tomorrow that's just as easy, but made with pork.

      Very Good! My kids raved over how awesome their dinner was! I have an endless supply of round steak, we grow our own meat. However I have not an endless supply of imagination so our round steak dinners have been less than fantastic lately. From my whole family, Thank you for the recipe!
