Country-Style Steak

Rated as 4.45 out of 5 Stars

"Mmmm...mmm... This is the recipe that my momma passed down to me. Born and raised in the South, and my momma was raised on a farm, so my family knows a lot about southern cookin'. With this recipe, don't be shy to add other spices to it. This goes great with mashed potatoes, green beans and sweet tea. You can use the gravy from the steak for the mashed potatoes."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix the flour, black pepper, seasoned salt, and garlic powder together in a shallow bowl, and coat the cube steaks thoroughly with the flour mixture, patting the flour onto the steaks to get a good coating. Retain 3 tablespoons of seasoned flour.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and pan-fry the cube steaks until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Place the steaks into a 9x12-inch baking dish. Whisk the retained seasoned flour into the beef broth until smooth, and pour the broth over the steaks. Cover the dish with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the meat is tender and the gravy has thickened, about 2 hours.

Being a Southern girl, I love just about anything "country-style" (fried and topped with gravy) and this did not disappoint. You will want more gravy (trust me on this one), so do as others have...

Great recipe, my husband loved it. I am not usually a fan of cube steak, but this was moist and tender. I doubled the gravy by increasing the broth to a 32oz box of broth and then adding 5 Tbs...

This was delicious!!!! I was looking for another recipe since the way I was making it the steak would sometimes be tough. I was skeptical about the cook time but it was soooo tender! I atlea...

Little effort, HUGE pay-off. I only made a couple of these cube steaks (with double the gravy), so one hour in the oven seemed like plenty long enough, and it was. I set the table with dinner...

I grew up on this recipe in Eastern KY. My Mother's secret, which she only shared with me, was to stir in a package of brown gravy mix 30 minutes before removing from oven. It thickened the gr...

WOW! This recipe is great! The only suggestion I have is if you are making it with mashed potatoes it needs more gravy. Other than that, this recipe is fast becoming a regular in my household.
