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!

    Recently I had made this recipe and my husband ask for it for dinner this evening. Wonderful flavor!

  2. Very easy , came out delicious. I think fresh mushrooms would have been good in the gravy . We will be trying again with mushrooms

  3. An awesome dish that is so tender and flavorful. Definitely would put in oven for 30 minutes to make sure steaks are super tender.

  4. Had your Cube Steak with Onion Gravy. So Yummy. I did add more Onion & Beef Stock–Love Onion. Worked out great with a little more slurry of flour & water. Thank you for this wonderful & tasty meal. It was so easy & fast. Able to plan meal time. Will look at your other recipes and try some of

    Next time I make this I will try with rice.

  5. This was really good. Different than how I was taught to make it but my husband liked this better. The Lipton packet gave the gravy great flavor.

  6. First time ever cooking cube steak and using this recipe I did great and it tasted awesome with be saving for future use. I also will recommend to anyone.

    This is an amazing recipe, I would add just one pointer. Cube steak is tough, so when it’s added back to the pan, it should simmer for at least another hour to promote the ultimate tenderness!

  8. The steak turned out great, though I did add some extra seasoning to the meat before frying. Also the recipe did not specify as to whether or no to drain the oil before adding the broth and other ingredients.
