Beef Cube Steak And Gravy - REC

My husband likes me to make my own gravy when I fix cube steaks, but when I am camping this makes it a little easier. This is great for people that have a hard time making gravy. Great in the Dutch oven.
Enjoy! Debbie

My cube steak story.

A friend was getting ready to buy another 1/2 a beef. He had about 6 lbs of cube steaks left and invited us over for a party.

I love cubed steak and gravy. I asked how him how he was going to cook them, I did not approve of his method and shoved him out of his own kitchen. I floured, seasoned and fried up the steaks, took the drippings and used and entire gallon of milk making the gravy(large skillet). When he saw how much gravy he said "we will never eat that much gravy". At the end of the meal they were taking pieces of bread and wiping out the last of the gravy in the bottom of the skillet.

Cubed steak gravy is in the top 3 of the gravies in my opinion. Good fried chicken gravy is probably the top and I would have to really think to pick one out for the third, there are so many....

In some parts, a cube steak may be called a minute steak. The cube steak is popular because it cooks up tender. Cube steak usually starts out as round steak. To make a cube steak, the butcher will run the meat through a butcher's tenderizer once or twice, turning it almost into hamburger looking meat that holds together better then hamburger. They also make pork cube steak.

LadyCook61, Thanks!

I make cube steak often but with no breading and a brown beef gravy made from drippings, flour and beef broth and a touch of milk. One of my fav meals. Need to try Ol blues sometime soon.
