Cube steak and gravy is one of my favorite comfort food meals. These steaks are fork tender, savory, and delicious (and easy too)!
This cube steak recipe was one of the first dishes I shared here, and boy do we love it. Since this was an early recipe, the original photos were B-A-D. I buried the originals deep in a virtual trashcan, but just trust me on this. Somehow it took me almost a year to make these tasty cube steaks again and take new photos, and we were very happy to have this old favorite for dinner. I hope this recipe will be a favorite at your house too!
There is something extra delicious about fork-tender meat if you ask me. I love a good steak, but slow-cooked meat that melts in your mouth is a different kind of treat. Add in rice and gravy, and I’m in heaven! I have loved rice and gravy for as long as I can remember, so it may be a bit of nostalgia for my childhood and Southern food. If you are more of a mashed potatoes and gravy fan, then definitely make some potatoes to go with it instead.
You do need to be home for a couple hours to prepare this cube steak recipe, but it’s completely hands off cooking after the first five minutes. Your house will smell amazing while it simmers, so that’s a bonus of the long cooking time. I haven’t tried making these cube steaks in the slow cooker yet, but think it would work if you browned them in the skillet first and then moved them to the crock pot. Let me know how it goes if you try it that way, or I’ll let YOU if I try it first 🙂
