I’m just going to come out with it…Cube Steak is one of those meats I buy for convenience….and only when its on sale. I don’t have to spend hours cleaning it like a chicken and it’s easy to throw in the crockpot. Bam….dinner done! But this convenient cheap meat never tasted that great IMO. And trust me, I’ve tried several different spices and its just eh…cheap convenient meat. That is until in casual conversation I asked my friend who is a chef how she prepares it. And in all fairness, I could have been the only one alive who thought throwing it in a crockpot was the only logical method.
Last night I tried her method and Cube Steak went from cheap convenient meat to fillet mignon Grade A Deliciousness and it was super quick and very doable as a weekday meal.
All of these items were purchased from Harris Teeter and I love using the McCormick seasoning packets! This was not a part of the original recipe but thought it was a nice way of adding a unique flavor. Next time I make this dish, I plan to try the McCormick Mesquite!
1 ½ cup of Flour
Your favorite spices (In this case I used McCormick Seasoning)
¾ cup of Olive or Vegetable Oil
3 tbl of Butter
1 Large Onion
1 ½ c Worcestershire Sauce
Season your cube steak with your favorite seasoning then dip in the flour and brown. Once your meat is browned on both sides, remove from the grease and set aside. Leave just enough grease in the pan to suttee your onions. Once the onions are tender to your liking, add back in the cube steak along with the Worcestershire Sauce. Cover and let simmer on low for about 20 mins! I served over rice with broccoli but this can easily be served over mash potatoes with asparagus!
