This is a good recipe for families that have good taste but can't afford really expensive steaks. The kids love it so much they call it Mom's famous cube steak! It's great with mashed potatoes and gravy!

  • Season the steak with salt and pepper to taste. Dredge in the flour and shake off the excess. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Brown the steaks in the oil, then transfer to a large, shallow casserole dish. Sprinkle the garlic, onion, and green pepper over top, pour in water, and wrap with aluminum foil.

This is the best way to cook the cheaper cuts of meat! I bought 4 cube steaks for $5 bucks. I cooked the garlic, peppers and onions in oil first then placed in the baking dish. Then I salted and peppered the flour. Dredging the steaks in that. I browned both sides of the steaks in vegtable oil, removing them when browned. Then I deglazed the pan with 1 14.5oz can of beef broth, letting it reduce also. I then placed the steaks in the bottom of the baking dish and placed the pepper mixture on top, then poured the broth drippings over that and baked. WONDERFUL....feeds a family of 5 for under $8.00. Add a slice of provolone to the top also for a variation. THANKS! Read More

I will give this 3 because I haven't even tried it yet. It sounds good but the directions say to pour in water but doesn't give any amount. Read More

I've been making this for a while, but instead of water, I use a large (15oz) can of tomato sauce and a spash of worcestershire sauce. This is one of those recipes that you can adapt to your own tastes. Read More

We loved it! I don't know why a couple of others didn't see the 2 cups of water in the ingredients. (Maybe the contributor added it later??) I also browned the cube steaks in the same pan after I removed the peppers garlic and onions. I also added beef bullion to the water and poured it over the whole thing. It is a great way to make cube steaks! I served it with mashed potatos and a side dish of yellow squash. I might try a pressure cooker next time to get it done quicker. Read More

Great recipe! My husband loved it! I made it a second time on the stove to save time. It cooks in about 10 minutes on medium heat and tastes just as wonderful. We love it with fettucine alfredo and green beans. Read More

My husband really liked this pepper steak. He went back for seconds which means a lot in my household. I followed the suggestion of another reviewer and sauteed the peppers onion and garlic then poured it over the top. I also added a few beef boulion cubes to the water. I would make this again. It takes forever to cook this meat fork tender so dont try it if your in a hurry. Read More

Turned out great however instead of water I used a can of Campbells French Onion broth. Also seasoned the meat and flour for a bit more flavor. Served with mashed potatoes and corn on the cob. Boyfriend loved it! Read More

Good recipe I made this on the stove top in about 10 minutes instead of putting in the oven. I browned the steaks and sauted the onions and garlic in a little butter then I used 1-1/2 cup beef broth and 1/2 cup of red wine in place of the water to deglaze the pan. I added the peppers at the last just to warm them. Last I sprinkled shredded swiss cheese to the top. I served over some left over rice. I will fix this again for a quick dinner Update. I am no longer eating meat. I made this with Portabellasin stead of the meat and used vegtable broth. Yum. Read More

This recipe was quick to prepare and very tastey. However I was in a hurry to cook something good...fast so I cooked in a hurry and realized only after I had everything going in the stove that I didn't quite follow the cooking method lol. Good thing this wasn't a complicated dish as I have made pepper steak many times over the years but was looking for a new way. I found this recipe and read it went right into the kitchen and began cooking it my old way (I am still trying to figure out that move but anywho)in a wok I added about a 1tbs. of oil and stir-fried green peppers onions sliced garlic and canned mushrooms. Eyeballed a couple of shakes of soy sauce that sizzled into the pan. Then added the floured cubed beef and the water and then poured into a 13X something pyrex pan that I lined with foil (for easy cleanup) and placed in the oven covered until meat was tender. I served over basmati rice with a tossed garden salad. I had no need to add salt to this as I was serving extra soy souce on the side as a condiment. It was very tastey and have added it to my next months dinners next time I will try cooking it exactly as the recipe states. Thanks again Read More
