Line a pan with foil. Brown the cubed steaks in a skillet. Place the steaks on the foil and add 1 bag of stew veggies over the steak. Add 1 envelope of onion soup mix to 1 can of cream of mushroom soup. Pour the mixture over the veggies.


Seal up the foil and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 1 hour or until the veggis are cooked. I like to add one or two sliced green peppers and some diced potatoes to the mixture. Serve over noodles if you like. So Good.

Dredge it in flour mixed with a few seasonings, such as seasoned salt/garlic powder/salt/pepper/etc. Brown in a little oil just until browned. Lay it on a paper towel to try to get excess oil off. Place in a foil lined pan. Mix up a mixture of about 1/4 cup all purpose flour, and a quart of water or so.


Pour over it and bake at 350 degrees F. for approx. half hour to 45 minutes. Makes its own gravy. Be sure and get the excess oil off so it will be creamy gravy, not oily.

Another way to use the cube steaks is to make swiss steak out of them. Brown them in a little oil, with some onions and add a can of diced tomatoes and either cook on low on the stovetop or put in the oven for about 45 minutes on 350 to tenderize. We also use the cube steaks for beef stroganoff, just cut into small squares, brown with onion and add a can of mushroom soup with a can of milk and stir in the meat and onions.


Then add a half cup of sour cream. We like it served over noodles or rice.
It's a thrifty piece of meat but the secret comes in cooking it slow in the oven to make it more tender for any of the receipes.

How do I bake cube steak?

Cube steak is one of those kinds of steak that's good for breakfast. What I would do is lay out the ones you want for a meal, season (I like garlic powder, salt & pepper on beef-put salt on both sides, lightly, then pepper on one side & garlic powder on the other) Use a back side of a fork to press the spices into the meat, then melt butter to almost burning & fry it very fast. This is not a meat that needs long frying time. I like butter for this steak cause it is good at high temps & it adds a good taste. You could use what you want, but butter has the right taste. If you fry it too long, you just make it tough. The faster the better. Oh & use high heat to keep it frying fast.

Sorta Salisbury Steak

* 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
* 1 cup all-purpose flour, divided
* 6 (4 ounce) cube steaks (pounded round meat)
* 1 large onion, sliced into strips
* 2 cups beef stock
* 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Heat the oil in a Dutch oven, or deep iron skillet. Dredge steaks in some of the flour, reserving the rest of the flour. Brown steaks in the oil a few at a time, and remove to a plate. When all of the steaks are browned, place a layer of sliced onions into the Dutch oven, and alternate layers of steak and onion. Pour in beef stock and Worcestershire sauce.

3. Cover, and bake for 2 hours in the preheated oven. Remove steaks and onions from the pan, and whisk in 2 tablespoons of the remaining flour. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and cook, stirring until thickened. Serve steaks and onions with gravy with mashed potatoes or noodles.

I bought cube steaks on sale. Any ideas on how to fix them would be wonderful. Crockpot or oven recipes would be great.
