This is a good recipe for families that have good taste but can't afford really expensive steaks. The kids love it so much they call it Mom's famous cube steak! It's great with mashed potatoes and gravy!

This is the best way to cook the cheaper cuts of meat! I bought 4 cube steaks for $5 bucks. I cooked the garlic, peppers and onions in oil first then placed in the baking dish. Then I salted and peppered the flour. Dredging the steaks in that. I browned both sides of the steaks in vegtable oil, removing them when browned. Then I deglazed the pan with 1 14.5oz can of beef broth, letting it reduce also. I then placed the steaks in the bottom of the baking dish and placed the pepper mixture on top, then poured the broth drippings over that and baked. WONDERFUL....feeds a family of 5 for under $8.00. Add a slice of provolone to the top also for a variation. THANKS!

I've been making this for a while, but instead of water, I use a large (15oz) can of tomato sauce and a spash of worcestershire sauce. This is one of those recipes that you can adapt to your own tastes.

We loved it! I don't know why a couple of others didn't see the 2 cups of water in the ingredients. (Maybe the contributor added it later??) I also browned the cube steaks in the same pan after I removed the peppers, garlic, and onions. I also added beef bullion to the water and poured it over the whole thing. It is a great way to make cube steaks! I served it with mashed potatos and a side dish of yellow squash. I might try a pressure cooker next time to get it done quicker.
