  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Dredge the cube steaks in a mixture of flour, salt and pepper, and brown them in the hot oil.
  2. Arrange steaks in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle the green pepper, onion, celery, mushrooms, oregano, and onion soup mix over the steaks. Stir together the tomato juice and ketchup; pour over everything in the dish.
  3. Bake for about 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the meat is cooked through, and the sauce is thickened.

It was okay, however, way too much ketchup, it tasted like meat with ketchup smothered all over it, my kids liked it but the adults were VERY disappointed.

What an awesome recipe! I sort of cheated a bit though. I put the green peppers, onions, mushrooms, celery, tomatoe juice, ketchup, dry onion soup mix all in a blender and made a puree out of it...

Good flavor and super easy to make! I thought the sauce was a bit sweet for my taste so I might cut down the ketchup next time but this is a definate keeper! Also extra mushrooms would be great ...

Have made this several times and each time my husband raves about how good it is and how much he enjoys it. I have, however, changed the method ever so slightly, in that I dump all the veggies b...

Angie your Granny came up with a winner. This dish is practically a meal in itself. The lowly cube steak has never had it so good. Added benefit is that it is easy to prepare and very forgivi...
