Spiced up Swiss Steak

Nancy Nemecek


My family loves when I make this and I like when they ask for it, since it's so easy to throw together. And the salsa adds a nice kick to the gravy that makes you want a little more.

15 Min


45 Min




cube steaks
3/4 c
1 tsp
1/4 tsp
1-2 dash(es)
garlic powder
1 small jar(s)
beef gravy
6 oz
salsa, chunky - i use med. hot, but you may want more or less heat to it.
1/2 c
vegetable oil for frying

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over med. high heat.
Mix together the flour, salt & pepper and garlic powder on a plate. Press the cube steaks in the flour making sure they are fully coated. Fry just until well browned on both sides.
While the meat is browning, mix the gravy & salsa together in an 8 x 8 baking pan.
If you're worried about the spiciness or want more, feel free to adjust the salsa. I wouldn't go much less than 2 parts gravy to one part salsa or more than a 1 to 1 ratio for flavor sake.
Place the browned cube steaks in the pan & push down into the gravy so it mostly covers them.
Also, I like to scrape up those bits from the frying pan to add to the gravy.
Cover tightly with foil and bake 45 min. If making more than 4, add a few more minutes to the bake time for each additional steak.
I usually have to double the recipe and bake for 1 hr. in a 9 x 13 pan.
We like to serve this with mashed potatoes because the gravy is just sooo good on them.
