Easy Tender Country Cube Steaks in Gravy

Easy Tender COuntry Cube Steaks - Gluten & Dairy Free

Like any person who is trying to save a buck and still put money where their mouth is…when you stumble across a good deal on meat…even if it is not a standby for you, you pick it up.

This is what happened to me.  My local store was carrying local, grass-fed, free range cube steaks for $3.99/pound – a great deal for responsible beef.  I didn’t know exactly what I was going to do with it, but that is part of the adventure for me.  I love to hunt out new and interesting recipes.  Every week, I anxiously await the results of a new recipe with baited breath…it’s almost like Christmas for me, every time!!

Most people I know can’t believe I do so many new recipes in a week….but it is my passion and my love.  I picked this recipe up at allrecipes.com.  It looked so simple, and all the positive ratings made it a shoe-in for me.  I tweaked proportions, and of course made it gluten free.

The result?  One very easy and very delicious dinner.  We have made this two times already….tender meat, savory gravy, almost no effort?  What’s not to love?!  We served ours over Trader Joe’s Brown Rice Noodles, but any cooked grain would work.  With a simple side of steamed broccoli….perfect dinner!

 

Easy Tender Country Cube Steaks in Gravy
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
 
Ingredients
  • ⅓ cup brown rice flour
  • ⅓ cup sweet rice flour (Mochiko Blue my favorite)
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 pound beef cube steaks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1½ cups beef broth
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Preheat a pan to medium high for browning the steaks.
  3. Mix the flours and seasonings together.
  4. Press the cube steaks into the flour mixture, firmly, thoroughly coating each side. Reserve remaining coating.
  5. Add the oil to the preheated pan, swirling to evenly distribute. Brown the coated steaks, a couple of minutes per side until golden brown.
  6. Place the steaks in a oven-safe pan, I used both a pie plate and a small rectangle pan with success. In these pictures, I thought to use one of my Flexipans by Demarle...my husband was quite happy at clean up time...just wiped it out with some soapy water!
  7. Whisk 3 tablespoons coating mixture into the beef broth and pour over the steaks.
  8. Bake for 1 to 1½ hours until the steaks are tender and the gravy is thick.

    My freezer died Saturday – and I had a BUNCH of meat that needed to be cooked. Cube steak was one – I basically followed your recipe except I used a different combo of g/f flours. Delicious.
