Cube Steak and Gravy

Servings 4 servings


  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 4 cube steaks 6 ounce
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2+ cups water
  • 1 teaspoon beef bouillon granules
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • Up to 2 cups milk or water


  • Season cube steaks with salt and pepper. In a shallow baking dish, pour the flour and press the steaks into the flour; shake off excess flour.
  • In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the cube steak and cook until browned, 3 minutes per side.
  • Pour enough water in skillet to almost cover the meat. Stir in beef bouillon and salt to taste into the water.
  • Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until very tender, about 2 hours.
  • Remove meat from the skillet. Leave 2 tablespoons of drippings in the skillet (saving the rest). Stir in 2 tablespoons flour.
  • Stir until the flour has thickened and the gravy is smooth. Continue to cook until the flour is browned, stirring constantly.
  • Slowly add back some of the previously removed drippings (fat removed). Add either milk or water, enough to make 2 cups. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
