  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat the oil in a Dutch oven, or deep iron skillet. Dredge steaks in some of the flour, reserving the rest of the flour. Brown steaks in the oil a few at a time, and remove to a plate. When all of the steaks are browned, place a layer of sliced onions into the Dutch oven, and alternate layers of steak and onion. Pour in beef stock and Worcestershire sauce.
  3. Cover, and bake for 2 hours in the preheated oven. Remove steaks and onions from the pan, and whisk in 2 tablespoons of the remaining flour. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and cook, stirring until thickened. Serve steaks and onions with gravy with mashed potatoes or noodles.

To my mind, not at all like Salisbury Steak. This was very, very good on its own. I cooked on low in the crockpot for 8 hrs; dredged the meat in flour and seasoned salt, then browned, then layered in crockpot with onion and all the liquid called for. After 8 hours, I pulled everything out and made a delicious gravy with the liquid. The cube steak was falling apart as it was being served - I've never had such great-tasting, tender cube steak! I served with buttered egg noodles and brussel sprouts. Yum!

Cube steaks are tough and very bland so they need lots of "doctoring." This recipe adequately tenderizes the steaks, but contributes hardly any flavor. The only seasoning is a bit of Worchestershire. Even after adding salt and pepper, my family found the meat and gravy to be ho hum. Another problem with this recipe is the gravy prep. When making gravy properly you blend flour with fat and get a smooth paste before adding liquid. This recipe has you add flour to the fat AND broth so the flour immediately clumps up. The solution would be to retain your pan drippings when you brown the meat, add flour to those drippings and then add broth last.


Yes, yes, yes! These are soooo good. Nice and warm and homey feeling. I only use 4 cube steaks, dry onion soup mix instead of the onion (4 yr. old won't touch them), and add mushrooms. All the other recipes I'd found called for mixing ground meat with bread crumbs, then frying, etc. I call those meatloaves, not salisbury Thank you, Nanci, for such a great comforting recipe. *Update* : I've found that seasoning the steaks before you dredge them in flour makes them even better. I just use salt, pepper, and garlic powder, but you could use whatever you like. I have also started thickening the broth with a cornstarch/water mixture. That way, you definitely don't get any lumps from the flour.
