  1. Season the cube steaks on both sides with salt and pepper. Pour the flour onto a shallow plate and press the steaks into the flour; shake off the excess flour. Heat the oil in a large skillet with lid over medium-high heat. Place the steaks into the hot oil, and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.
  2. Pour water into the skillet to almost cover the steaks. Stir the beef bouillon and salt to taste into the water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until very tender, about 2 hours.

I was the hero of the night with this simple recipe. The only change I made was adding one big onion cut in rings. The steaks were so tender you could cut them with the fork and the gravy was ...

This was the best Cube Steak, that I have EVER HAD. I used a can of mushrooms on top and let it all simmer for 2 hours. THANKS FOR SHARING. THIS IS EXCELLENT.

Awesome! I added a little garlic powder to the flour and browned in the pan. Then I put them in the crock pot with some beef broth and chopped onion and minced garlic. it made good gravy too (ju...

Excellent! I've made cubed steak a thousand times but following this recipe and simmering for a couple hours turned this into a family fave! It was extremely tender and the gravy was delicious...

I grew up with my mom making this recipe all the time. Only thing different is that she added about 5 whole allspice while the steaks were simmering, removing them before making the gravy.

Excellent! The picture doesn't look too appetizing, but I tried it anyway, and am I glad I did! These turned out tender, not chewy, and the gravy made from the drippings was some of the best I'v...
