Cubed Steak with Onion Gravy is a quick and easy meal that is an economical way to serve beef to your family. Cubed steaks are coated in flour and pan-fried. This country-style steak is covered in a super flavorful onion gravy that gets lots of onion flavor from not only a large sliced onion, but a packet of dry onion soup mix.
How To Serve
The whole meal can be made start to finish in about 20 minutes. I love to serve Cubed Steak with Onion Gravy over mashed potatoes to soak up all that yummy gravy with a side of peas. Are you a fan of peas mixed into your mashed potatoes? I love it!
The pieces of cubed steak are dredged in a little flour that’s been seasoned with black pepper and garlic salt and then pan-fried in some vegetable oil. A cast iron pan is best, but any type of pan will work. The gravy is super easy to make from the pan drippings.
Cubed Steak with Onion Gravy is definitely worthy of a place on your regular dinner rotation!

I’ve made this recipe many times and it’s delicious 😋
I made this and now it’s a weekly meal. I added mushrooms and sautéed them with the onions. So delicious and easy!!
This was delicious! I used homemade beef bone broth as it is delicious and to cut down on salt. I would advise using a cornstarch slurry to thicken the gravy if you feel it needs it. Cornstarch thickens immediately. Flour needs to cook to remove the pasty taste. I always have a roux made with butter in my refrigerator or freezer for times when I need a quick thickener. It keeps indefinably in the refrigerator or freezer. Husband said this is a a keeper. thank you for sharing!!
Love it !!
