Seasoned and pan-fried beef cube steaks get a long, slow bake in beef broth to make delicious, tender steaks and tasty gravy from an inexpensive cut of beef.

I make something similar to this and it is very good. I sauté sliced onions and add to the meat before putting in the oven. The onions practically melt away.

These steaks are wonderful and easy to make. They also make their own gravy. Wonderful served with rice.

Makes them really tender, and I will second the Marlboro Man sandwich from Pioneer Woman.
