Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cubed Steaks

Barbara J. Lumb Recipe

I don't have exact measurements, as some steaks are larger, smaller, thinner, thicker...I typically buy larger, thicker steaks - cooking 4 @ a time!

pinch tips: How to Check Freshness of an Egg


1 - 1 1/2 c
salt and pepper
large cubed steaks
1 pkg
lipton beefy onion soup mix
olive oil
2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350
Heat olive oil in large (cast iron works best) skillet on med-med/high heat.
Mix flour, salt & pepper (I prefer fresh ground) in pie plate. Dredge cubed steaks in flour mixture.
Brown steaks maybe 5 min. per side - turning over a few times.
Place cooked cubed steaks in deep casserole dish. Drain oil from skillet, reserving steak/flour residue. Mix soup mix with 2 C. water, turning heat higher, whisking to loosen browned bits in skillet.
(I sometimes add some of the leftover flour at this time...mixture does not need to be thick as it thickens in the oven).
Pour this mixture over cubed steaks.
Bake, uncovered, for 1 hour. Makes its own gravy & cubed steaks are so tender, you won't need a knife!

I have made this similar, but I used cream of mushroom soup, slightly diluted with waater, with beef base added and also tucked cut up potatoes here and there with the meat and then poured the soup mixture over. Baked, with no covering. I think will try your onion soup mix next time. We have MANY cube steaks in the freezer after butchering a steer in the Fall.

This is a great recipe...I do one thing differently...I always cook the steaks or any meat you like in the iron skillet and then put the skillet with the cooked meat into the oven. I've done this for years cooking steaks, pork chops, whatever and use the flour to make the gravy. Follow the recipe, but use the iron's great to cook in.

I made this for my family a few weeks ago. My husband has raved about it ever since. He begged me to make it again, so I am tonight. I used to make it the way my MIL taught me, just on the stove but hubby said he likes this one better than his moms!!!!! Definitely a winner in our book.
