Homestyle Budget Ctry Steaks By Freda



This is MY VERY OWN recipe, Easy on the Pocketbook & Budget, This thrify recipe I have made 2-3 dinners out of one Recipe.
I have made Meatball's for What ever You choose,
(subs, spaghetti sweet and sour meatballs, BBQ, etc. all of Your choice)

Also my Version of Country Salsbury Steak. I serve with Rice or any type Potatoes, or even noodles,as this has lots of gravy for the rice or taters along with a vegie, or salad or Cold Slaws.

I can also Make Meatloaf out of this same recipe.
I Serve this With a Baked Tater, and salad and you have Instant Dinner. . . that's easy on the Budget. In These tough times who doesn't need an easy on the Budget good meal??

Hope You find this as apealing to your taste-buds and pocket book as my family does.
