Recipe by Pvt Amys Mom

This is another variation of the old favorite. Made with cube steak and cream of mushroom soup. We have been making it this way for years.

Very tasty! My Southern husband is super picky about "traditional southern foods" and he really loved this one! Said it was a "family favorite" and a keeper! I also added some milk to the soup to thin out and did seasoning salt on the meat beforehand. Thanks for a tasty supper!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sprinkle cube steaks with salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste.
  2. Dredge in flour- I usually coat them once, let them sit a couple minutes then coat them again.
  3. Heat enough oil to lightly cover the bottom of your pan.
  4. Brown cube steaks well on both sides.
  5. Lower heat and add undiluted cream of mushroom soup.
  6. (Drain oil first if you have alot in the bottom of the pan).
  7. Simmer for approx 30 mins turning meat occasionally and loosening"crustys" from the bottom of the pan.
  8. Serve over rice.
  9. (I do not care for cream of mushroom soup on its own but when it incorporates with the flour and crustys from the meat it makes a tasty gravy).
