I was extremely nervous about Cube Steak, since I heard it could be very tough if prepared wrong. I was absolutely delighted with the outcome of this recipe! I used 1 can roasted garlic cream of mushroom soup and one can of low sodium cream of mushroom soup, added an onion and can of drained mushrooms and put it all in my crock pot for 10 hours. It smelled great and when I went to take the meat out of the pot, it actually fell apart. I served it over garlic mashed potatoes drizzled with the mushrooms and onions. I agree that the gravy was very thin, but I don't like thick gravy, so it was fine. I could have thickened it. My husband and house guest loved it and even my 2 year olds ate it up. So easy and inexpensive to make. I'll definitely make it again!

This recipe makes a great gravy, the meat was very tender but I think next time I would not put the cujan seasoning and maybe at something like garlic instead.

I thought it was wonderful and my hubby gobbled it right up! I did make a slight change by putting it in my crock pot instead of the oven and by using Cream of Celery Soup instead of mushroom! Will definitely make this dish again soon! Served over egg noodles by the way!

Love this recipe - however, i doctored on it some. 1st - used 1 can cream of mushroom soup and 1 can beefy mushroom, 1 can diet lemon-lime soda, and added about 1/4 cup worchestershire sauce. Also, mixed a slurry (corn starch and cold water) and added to thicken it. I also served it over grits! IT was delicious! I prepared it all in a crock pot and cooked for about 2 hours! I highly recommend!

Was a hit even with my picky eaters...I did the dish a little differently. Used garlic powder rather than pepper (my family is not spicey). I did not have two can's of cond. cream of mushroom, I used a "family" (large) size can, instead. I did mess up a little...I mixed the "lemon-lime soda" in with the "soup mixture" (left the mixture a little lumpy) but it turned out just as good! Served with mashed potato's, used the gravy and opened a can of corn...It was WONDERFUL!!!

We get a lot of cube steak as part of our meat locker order. It's a challange to find a recipe that is good enough that we want to try it again. This is one of those recipes. We've even enjoyed it as leftovers.

Very tasty, and the meat was so tender. Try carbonated beverages on other meats as well, it helps to tenderize them too...

Very good. I left out the soft drink and put everything else in the crock pot for 4 hours on high. Very tender, tasty, and a hit with my husband. Love the cajun spices- really gave it a kick.
