Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Season the cube steaks on both sides with salt and pepper. Pour the flour onto a shallow plate and press the steaks into the flour; shake off the excess flour. Heat the oil in a large skillet with lid over medium-high heat. Place the steaks into the hot oil, and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.

  • Pour water into the skillet to almost cover the steaks. Stir the beef bouillon and salt to taste into the water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until very tender, about 2 hours.

This is very good! The steak was very tender. Instead of cooking it on the stovetop, after browning on both sides in an ovenproof pan, I baked (covered with foil) them for 2 hours at 325 degrees. Very tender! Read More

I was so surprised at how good (and easy)this recipe was! I've always dredged cube steak in flour, salt and pepper and pan fried. This made the meat much more tender and the gravy on mashed potatoes was awesome. Served with fresh green beans and corn for a wonderful meal, enjoyed by both hubby and 9 year old son. Oh, I did add onion and mushrooms to gravy just because I love them. Read More

I was a little skeptical of this recipe due to the short ingredient list, but it was great! The steak was tender and had a great flavor. I didn't have any bouillon, so I just skipped the water and used beef broth. I will definitely be making this again. Read More

I was the hero of the night with this simple recipe. The only change I made was adding one big onion cut in rings. The steaks were so tender you could cut them with the fork and the gravy was great. Read More

Excellent! I've made cubed steak a thousand times but following this recipe and simmering for a couple hours turned this into a family fave! It was extremely tender and the gravy was delicious over rice. I couldn't believe the amount of raves I got throughout the meal ~ Thanks so much for this recipe! Read More

Excellent! The picture doesn't look too appetizing, but I tried it anyway, and am I glad I did! These turned out tender, not chewy, and the gravy made from the drippings was some of the best I've ever had.. Seriously! :) Read More
