  • 1 large skillet, preferably cast iron
  • 1 meat mallet


  • 4 cube steaks
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pepper


  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 tsp butter
  • salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Instructions

  • Tenderize cube steaks with meat mallet or lightly with a knife. Season steaks with salt and pepper.
  • Mix salt, pepper, garlic powder and flour in a large shallow bowl and dredge steaks.
  • In a large skillet over medium high heat, heat vegetable oil. Fry steaks in batches so they don’t touch until golden brown, about 3 - 4 minutes per side. Transfer steaks to a paper towel-lined plate.
  • Reduce heat to medium and add butter to skillet. Melt, scraping the bottom of the pan. Then add cornstarch and stir to coat. Slowly add beef broth, ½ a cup at a time, continuously stirring.
  • Let simmer until gravy has thickened. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
  • Serve steaks smothered with gravy.
