- Ready In:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

- Mix the tomato sauce with the basil, oregano, garlic, onion, and mushrooms.Pour over cube steak and put in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.
- Top with the mozzerella, and then the parmesan cheese. Return to oven til melted. About 5 minutes.
Yummy and pretty easy. My only quibble is that the directions could have been a LOT clearer. I drained my mushrooms (doesn't say), used garlic powder (seemed more logical than fresh garlic) and salted and peppered the meat before browning (again, the recipe doesn't specify). I browned the meat on medium high heat (8) but it burned a bit so I might knock it down some next time. Cube steaks go on sale often and I am usually stumped about what to do with them, so I will be adding this to my rotation. I served this with Recipe #122143 which cooks at the same temperature.
This dish turned out beautifully! I made it even healthier by omitting the oil and using reduced-fat cheeses. We like a lot of sauce so I doubled it and the spices. I'm glad I did. There were a few of us who still would have liked more sauce since I served it over spaghetti. The flavors were excellent and even the kids loved it. Thanks!
