Boneless Beef Cubed Steak in Tomato, Onion Gravy

Pat Morris


This has been a stand-by since we were children, and currently when there is a need for some comfort food. I love cube steak, especially when it is simmered in tomato, onion gravy.

You can serve the steak and gravy alone or over rice. Either way, it makes a great meal
