Smothered Cube Steak in Coconut Flour Gravy
Rose Mary Mogancookinginillinois
I wanted to make something very tasty for dinner, & this was my solution. Seasoning Coconut flour with spices that I loved then dredged the steaks in the seasoned mixture, and let it sit for awhile. The meal turned out really great, and this was the first time I made gravy that actually had some added fiber and less carbs. We enjoyed it, the nice Carribean Vegetables, and the mushroom gravy served over rice completed the meal . My husband especially enjoyed having Beef for a change, since I have been doing a lot of Chicken lately. Recipe is another winner in our household. Hope you like it.
- cube steaks, about 1 1/4-1 1/2 pounds
- 2 medium
- bell peppers, red or green or mixed,cut in strips
- 1 large
- onion sliced thick then separated
- 1-1 1/2 tsp
- lawrey's seasoned salt
- 1 tsp
- black pepper
- 1/2 tsp
- italian seasoning
- 8 oz
- canned sliced mushrooms, undrained
- 2 tsp
- granulated garlic powder
- 1 tsp
- onion powder
- 2 tsp
- 1/2 c
- coconut flour, or all purpose
- 2 Tbsp
- olive oil or canola oil
- 1 Tbsp
- heaping full corn starch (optional)
- 1/2 c
1Combine spices in a large zip lock bag, then add coconut flour and mix thourgly to combine. Dredge each steak in coconut flour mixture, ensuring that both sides are covered, then place on a platter at room temperature and allow seasoning to penetrate the steaks, about 15 to 25 minutes. This allows them to come to room temperature and they will cook faster.
2Next add the oil to a large skillet and heat so it will be hot when steaks are ready to go in. Then carefully add steaks to skillet, and let brown on both sides.
3Then add the sliced onion rings, bell peppers, and canned sliced mushrooms liquid and all. Mix the corn starch with the 1/2 cup water, stir to mix, and pour over meat & vegetables, LOWER HEAT. Cover with a tight fitting lid and allow to simmer till tender about 35 to 45 minutes. Stirring occassionally to prevent sticking. Serve while still hot, over Mashed Potatoes or Rice or pasta, with a vegetable of your choice.
4NOTES: I am sure you know you CAN USE ALL PURPOSE flour in this recipe, I am merely trying to add a little fiber to the diet where ever I can. We loved this recipe and I am confident that you and your family will too.
