That sure sounds like comfort food to me!
Are you making the gravy from scratch or an envelope?
Make sure you don't over-cook the cube steaks, they can get really tough. If you bake them in the gravy, then I don't think you have anything to worry about. I like to brown them in a skillet (4 servings, 2-3 Tbsp olive oil; 1 serving 1-2 Tbsp olive oil)
If you bake the steaks with no liquid, then cover with foil, and cook for 25 min @ 350... turning once, half way. Personally, I would add the gravy to the browned cube steak, and let that bake for the above time.
A great "noodle" side dish is cooked egg noodles/rotini, tossed with 1 Tbsp butter, 1 minced garlic clove (1 tsp garlic powder) and 1-2 tsp of basil or italian seasoning. That is for one serving.
Along side... garlic bread is the best, but any bread-n-butter will do.
Your apples sound delish!
