What is Cube Steak?
I was curious so I Googled. Do you know why this is called Cube Steak? The steak is usually round steak or top sirloin steak and it’s run through an electric tenderizer. The name is derived from the cube-shaped intentions, otherwise known as “cubing”. Now, you know. You’re welcome.
One Skillet Comfort Food
This Cube Steak Recipe is made in one skillet throughout. You’ll need a skillet with a cover and it needs to be oven safe to 350°. Once you have everything set up, you’ll be putting it all in the oven to finish off.
If you don’t have a covered skillet with a cover that will work in the oven, you can cook everything in a skillet on the stove top then transfer to a covered casserole or other baking dish, if you prefer.
If you don’t like mushrooms, feel free to omit them. You’ll still have a fantastic brown gravy! It’s delicious on mashed potatoes, pasta, egg noodles, even rice.
