Sweet and Sour Beef Cubes Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2014
I was really hopeful about this recipe--it provided a promising way to use up a chuck steak I had on hand and I like all of the ingredients. However, the ratios are way off and it fell far short of my expectations. It was far too...vinegary (is that a word?) and it upset my stomach. It turned my stomach so much that I immediately had to wash the dishes that had the sauce on it, as even the smell was too much for me to handle. I think that if I were to make it again (I won't), I think I'd use much less ketchup and perhaps no vinegar. Actually, I don't know how I'd fix this recipe. Maybe someone with more cooking experience and more know how on the chemistry of a sauce like this would know what to do. As for me, I won't be making it again and save my stomach the upset.

This was easy to make. I used only 2 lbs of stew beef and 2 onions, but I kept the sauce measurements the same. I wasn't a huge fan of the gooey flour on the beef. Maybe if the beef was browned in a skillet before baking, it would be better. However, I don't think I will make it again. It wasn't bad, but I would rather eat something else. My husband, who isn't very picky, did not like this. He said it's edible, but not good. He gave it 2 stars.

Had to cut the onions amount in half because my guys are not supper crazy for them. But it was a hit. Cleaned their plates.
