  • 4 Cube Steaks
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt 3/4 tsp table salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 3 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Onion thickly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 cups Beef Broth low sodium


  • Sprinkle both sides of the cube steaks with the salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • On a plate, mix together the flour, garlic powder and onion powder.
  • Heat a 12" skillet over medium high heat. When hot, add the butter and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened. Remove to a bowl.
  • While the onion is cooking, dredge the cube steaks in the flour (both sides) and shake off the excess. Set aside.
  • After cooking the onion, add the olive oil to the skillet. When hot, add the cube steaks. Cook about 4 minutes on each side.
  • Add the beef broth, there should be just enough to cover the cube steaks. Then bring to a simmer, gently scraping up any browned bits under the cube steaks. Reduce heat to low and cover the skillet most of the way, leaving just a small gap for steam to escape.
  • Cook for 1 hour, then add the onions to the skillet. Cook 1 more hour, or until the cube steaks are tender.


  • Before serving you can thicken the gravy further with a mixture of 2 Tbsp flour and 2 Tbsp softened butter, or sprinkle in some instant mashed potato flakes.


Cube steaks are delicious served with mashed potatoes.
