I saw this recipe on Facebook a few times, and each time it was from a different food blog. It had nearly all positive comments from those who had tried it. It looked good, so I decided to give the recipe a try. It really is quite good, and it goes together rather quickly, so it's a good option for those busy nights when you don't have a lot of time to cook but want a delicious, filling dinner.

How to Make Smothered Cube Steak

Step-by-Step

  1. Season both sides of cube steaks with salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning. Rub a little flour into both sides of each cube steak.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in skillet over over medium heat. Add cube steaks and cook 5 minutes each side. Remove cooked steaks to a platter, and cover with foil to keep warm.
  3. Add mushrooms, onion and garlic to skillet with pan drippings, and cook about 5 minutes or until mushrooms and onions are tender, stirring frequently to scrape up browned bits from the skillet. (I added a little Cajun seasoning too, but that wasn't in the original recipe.)
  4. Stir 2 tablespoons of flour into the gravy. Add the broth and thyme, and stir well. Cook over medium heat until gravy is thickened. Return cube steaks to skillet and heat several minutes in the gravy, turn and cook other side for several minutes or until heated through and cooked thoroughly.

    Add a little more broth if the gravy thickens too quickly.
