4 (1/2 pound)
cube steaks (pounded round meat)
1 (10.5 ounce) can
condensed French onion soup
I didn't have the canned onion soup so I substituted a package of dry onion soup mixed with 1 cup of water and a tsp of beef boullion. Since my cubed steaks were very thin, I only baked for 30 minutes. My family loved them!
This recipe is a good idea but needs important adjustments. Water HAS to be added to the soup because otherwise it all dries up, plus the flavor is too condensed anyway. Also, I would suggest using a pan in which the meat just fits, so it will get the benefit of the liquid.
We had a nice and tasty meal with this as our recipe base. I used 8 cube steaks, 2 cans of beef broth, 1 can of mushroom soup, one onion (sliced) and 1 envelope of dry onion soup mix. I sprinkled the steaks with pepper and garlic powder and placed in skillet with onion rings to brown on both sides. Meanwhile, I mixed the beef broth, mushroom soup and dry onion soup mix. After meat was browned I placed it and onions in a 9x13, poured the soup mix all over, covered with foil and baked at 350 for 45 minutes. Served with mashed potatoes and a salad. These steaks were tender and certainly not dry. The gravy was delicious. A tasty, yet inexpensive meal since I got the steaks for $1.99/lb.
I browned 6 cube steaks with granulated garlic and seasoned pepper. Then I added the condensed French Onion Soup, along with a can of Cream of Mushroom and half an envelope of Lipton's dry Onion Soup mix. Covered with foil and wow... the meat was tender, and the gravy was delicious over mashed potatoes. True comfort food for a pittance. This will definitely be on the monthly rotation, and thanks, Amy!
I've used this same recipe (with a few variations of course) since long before the computer was even a dream. I coat the meat with flour and seasons of choice and beat the flour mixture into the meat. THE BEST TIP I EVER GOT: THE MORE FLOUR YOU POUND INTO THE MEAT, THE MORE TENDER THE MEAT WILL BE. Put onions in with meat to saute after you have turned the meat once. Use cream of (your favorite) soup along with a packet of dry onion soup mix. I make this all in a cast iron skillet so I don't have to transfer to another pan or cook in the crock pot. Covering the dish to cook also helps tenderize the meat. This works GREAT with venison steaks too or any other steak, be it tough meat or tender.
Easy as it GETS... Comfort food to a 'T'. Didn't change a thing (not sure why people find it necessary to change everything & make it nothing of what it was...) Thanks for a super simple dinner!
This is really good. I dredge the steaks in flour and brown. Also add beef broth to the french onion soup, and cook longer at lower temp. Turns our really tasty and tender. Have used mushroom soup with beef broth as well. Also add sliced onion on top of steak.
Delicious, easy, and inexpensive... who could ask for more? I season mine with garlic salt and fresh-ground pepper, then when they have browned I just pour the soup in the skillet, put on the lid, and let it simmer over low heat for at least an hour, if not several. Comes out wonderfully tender and leaves my oven free to bake some potatoes for a side dish.
