I'm making French onion soup and a salad, and decided to make cube steaks with onion gravy to go with - saw them and bought them, don't really know why, never made them before. I think I'll make some noodles for the gravy. And baked apples for dessert.

  1. Rib eye steaks on the BBQ (it is snowing like crazy here, so I'm lucky the BBQ is just outside my kitchen door)
  2. Butternut squast soup
  3. Fried asparagus finished with balsamic vinegar
  4. Baked potatos with tzatziki

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!
