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

Cube steak recipes may not appear beautiful, but boy are they tasty. This recipe is seriously so easy and delicious. No fancy ingredients here. It's a recipe that can be woven into your weekly dinner rotation. The cube steak is so tender you don't need a knife to cut it. The onion soup mix is all the flavoring you need and helps to create a flavorful gravy.
