Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Lay out 4 squares of aluminum foil. Place one cube steak onto each piece of foil. Spread margarine over the steaks, and season with salt and pepper. Layer one sliced potato over each steak, and a few rings of onion. Season again with salt and pepper if you like. Fold the foil around the food, and seal into a packet. Place packets onto a baking sheet.

  • Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until the beef is no longer pink, and the potatoes are tender. Open carefully, as hot steam will be released.

Quick and easy. I'm a big fan of all-in-one meals and this is a good one. I thought it could use a little more pizazz so next time I believe I'll jazz it up a bit with garlic and seasoned salt. However even my finicky hubby liked it so it will definitely be added to my dinner rotation. I tried this again for dinner over the weekend and used seasoned salt garlic and Worchestershire sauce. I also cooked it on the grill. It was much better this time and was an easy cookout item. Read More

I loved this! I did follow the advice of others and added season salt and a little garlic. I also whisk up a packet of Lipton Beefy Onion Soup and pour it on top of the meat and veggies! I layer the potatoes onions and added carrots. Very easy to fix for a small group! Read More

I would season the meat with Worchestershire and soy sauce sprinkle it with season salt and maybe some garlic salt. Makes it taste MUCH better. Also could do it in the BBQ with ground beef instead for 15 mins on each side. Read More

We really like this recipe. Used pork cubed steaks and lots of seasoning. came out delicious. I always make extras for hubbys lunch and he says it's even better next day. This works well on the grill or in the oven. Thanks for sharing! Read More

This recipe has been handed down from my Nan's Nan to my Mom and I use it to make our meat pies. The secret is in the butter (meaning don't be stingy with it.) Thanks for another way to use this recipe Read More

This little meal really was quite good. I made sure to use salt & pepper on my meat and poured some Worchestershire sauce on it too. The potatoes and onions were delicious. I did have to cook it for an hour instead of 45 minutes because my vegetables weren't quite done yet. Still good meal. Very filling. Read More
