I must of been completely crazy cooking and baking in this heat, yesterday's high 99 °F, but it was worth an old family favorite!!! This cube steak and onion gravy is so delicious, tender and is a great “comfort food” for the whole family. I courage you to try this recipe at least one time, I know some people think cubes steaks are no tasty or tender, if you try this recipe I know you'll honestly love it. The meat is very tender, that you won't need a knife!!! And the gravy is so delicious; it’s rich and flavorful, not salty.

You are so very welcome sir, please keep in mind: cover the dish so no steam escapes, and bake on a cookie sheet, for at least 1hr. and 40 mins. Let me know how you like it : - )
