I like that idea. Tomatoes are not just for a pasta gravy. I also like to poach a whole fish in them. Even served as a side dish.

Cube steak is by its nature, tough, flavorful meat. It responds well to slow and low cooking. The cubing process helps tenderize the meat. So, as it's generally cooked low and slow, or breaded and fried, or braised, I'm going to buck the trend (yeh, I know, rebel with a cause).

Ingredients:
3 cube steaks
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 large, yellow onion, chopped
1 tbs. fresh, minced cilantro
1 fresh lime
2 avocados (made into fresh guacamole
Fresh corn tortillas
your favorite salsa

Take those cube steaks and throw them over blistering hot charcoal. Cook for 2 minutes per side. Remove to a clean cutting board. Place a large, heavy cast iron pan on the grill, over those same coals.

Dice the meat to fit nicely into tacos. Add everything but the tortillas and salsa into the hot pan. Stir around until the veggies are softened a bit. Remove from the heat and squese the lime over top. Stir to distribute.

Soften the tortillas in hot oil for 10 seconds and drain on paper towels. Fill with the meat filling, and a bit of salsa for flavor. And there you have it, the best taco filling, bar none (IMHO), carne asada. Enjoy.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

I bread/fry mine then put slices of fresh tomato and avacado on top. I then put a few slices of swiss or prvolone and broil intil the cheese melts. Some of the oil comes out with the re-heating as well.

man, that sounds good 4me. gotta remember that one.

my wife nakes an awesome cubed steak sandwich. i'll have to watch her closely next time, but think all she does is add a little butter to a little oil in a hot, nn-stick frying pan, then quickly fries them on each side for a minute, the sprinkles them with s&p and garlic powder, places a lid on the pan, and let's them finish cooking/steaming for just anothee minute more.

i love them served on hard rolls with raw diced shallots and ketchup, or a1 sauce. yummmmmm.

i've tried to do the same thing and ended up with shoes.

Every cook has their signature dish. And no matter what you do, how much you follow her directions, you just can't make it as good as she does.

I made a beef roast for supper, but think this would also work well for cube steaks.

Brown them in a little oil
Mix together
1 pkg. ranch powder
1 pkg brown gravy mix
1 pkg italian pow'd mix
Dissolve all 3 pkg's of dry mix in 2 cups of water, pour over meat & finish it in the oven or a crock pot, can add fresh carrots & potatoes too.
