Smothered Cube Steaks

The days are still chilly and rainy here and there’s not much cooking on the grill yet.  If I can’t have cube steaks on the grill, here’s the next best way to serve them.  It’s the comfort food way for sure. 
Cube steaks are not shaped like cubes at all, which is what you would think upon being introduced to them the first time.  Instead, cube pertains to the imprint on the meat when it goes through a tenderizing machine.  The steaks are more oval with jagged edges.  

Uncle Jake & Aunt Phyl

Regressing to the grill ~ one time, years ago, when we visited Uncle Jake and Aunt Phyl at their home in Pickerington, Uncle Jake said he was throwing cube steaks on the grill for the cookout at their pool party.  I’d never heard of anyone grilling them and thought they would be dry and tough.  I was wrong and they were great!

 This cube steak recipe I have for you today bakes cube steaks into a savory tenderness smothered in gravy with tasty mushrooms in the mix.  If you like cube steak, you must try this version ~ they’re as tender as a mother’s love! 

Smothered Cube Steaks 


4 cube steaks
1 can cream of mushroom soup
½ can milk
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
½ teaspoon pepper


Place steaks in a baking dish coated with cooking spray.
In a bowl, mix together remaining ingredients.
Pour mixture over cube steaks.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

  1. I have never been happy with cube steaks I've cooked at home, although I did grow up eating them. Any secrets?

  2. Having just re-read your recipe, I realize my question is pointless. It's the soup, the long baking. I'll do this.

  3. Love your comfort food recipe. I also learned something new. I would have never thought to put cube steaks on the grill. I will have to try that. Thanks.

  4. Love this comfort food dish, Looks heavenly and filling.

  5. I've never had cube steaks, grilled or otherwise, they look delicious!

  6. delicious + easy = perfect


  7. This is so deliciously southern it makes my mouth water! I would have never thought to put a cubed steak on the grill but now I will.

    At least we had sunshine for Easter. Today, rain and gray again.


  8. Que jugoso se ve el plato, fabuloso.


  9. I do the same recipe in a skillet on the stove top. I brown the meat, add the remaining ingredients, then cover with a lid and cook on low for an hour. I am going to give your version a try!

  10. I love, love, LOVE the fact that this isn't fried!!! I am totally saving this one :)

  11. Diane, thanks, they are!

    Stephen, you got it! Hope you try it and like it!

    Carol, they're good once in a while for something different.

    Glenda, I couldn't have said it better! Thanks!

    Bonnie, you're so right, this is southern all the way! I am sure one of these days it will be in the 80's here and stay there; we'll go from heat to air the same day and straight from winter to fall. Have a great rest of the week!

  23. I used to eat cube steaks a lot when I was young and studying and poor. I bought one recently and was first floored by the price, it was crazy expensive for a cube steak.

    This recipe may have worked, my approach was much different and so terrible I gave it to the dogs. LOL.

  27. Hi there,
    Looking to make this today...can of milk? Condensed milk? Evaporated? Regular?

  28. I made this tonight & we all loved it. I doubled it for our large family. I pan fried the cube steaks to carmelize them a little, covered the pan with foil & baked for 45 min. Other than that I followed the recipe. Yummy!

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…

You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”

Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.

Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!

A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.
