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.

Step 1: Ingredients:

4 cube steaks

2 pkgs. McCormick Onion Gray Mix, 8 oz.

1/2 cup unsalted butter

2-3 tsp. canola oil

1/2 cup flour

Onion powder, to taste

Salt and pepper, to taste

2 ½-3 cups water

Step 2: Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350°.

Step 3:

Season the cube steaks on both the front and backside. In a food storage gallon size bag, add flour and add 1 cube steak at a time, seal bag, shake bag to coat the meat.

Step 4:

In a medium size fry pan, over medium heat, melt 1/2 stick of butter with 2 tsp. canola oil.

Step 5:

Add 2 cube steaks at a time, browning on each side of the meat. Once browned, place the cube steaks in a casserole pan. Set aside.

Step 6:

Before adding the remaining 2 cube steaks, add more butter and oil. Add the remaining cube steaks, browning each side of the meat. Placing the cube steaks with the other two in the casserole pan. Set aside.

Step 7:

Add the 2 envelopes of gravy mix to the fry pan of drippings.

Step 8:

Over low heat, mix the drippings and gravy mix, creating a paste like mixture.

Step 9:

Slowly, while mixing, add water. At this time, I add some pepper.

Step 10:

Slowly, while constantly mixing, bring the gravy to a slow boil. Remove from heat.

Step 11:

Pour the gravy mix over the meat in the casserole pan. The gravy thicken up while baking, so don’t worry it looks too thin now.

Step 12:

Cove the casserole with aluminum foil, and place on a cookie sheet. Place in the pre-heated oven.

Step 13:

Bake the cube steak and gravy for 1: 30 to 2 hours. By then the meat should be fork tender. I started baking at 3:28 PM and took out of the oven at 5:29 PM. The meat was extremely tender and the gravy thicken to perfection!!!

Step 14:

When done baking, I move the meat from side to side, to mix the gravy. with meat drippings ... great meal, especially when served with mashed potatoes!! Serves: 6 servings.

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 : - )
