Easy Pan Fried Cube Steak Recipe

I can remember my mama cooking this amazing recipe as a kid. So when I started cooking myself, mine was not so tender. I finally decided to ask her the secret to frying tender cube steaks.


Start by seasoning cube steaks with salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste. And then dredge both sides of cube steak in 1½ cups of gluten-free Cassava flour, covering both side well.

Once they are floured, place them into a hot cast-iron skillet with a tablespoon of organic coconut oil to fry. Brown both sides well. Once browned on both sides, remove and set them aside. THE SECRET – browning on both sides to seals in the juices, keeping the steaks tender!


Lower temperature a bit on skillet and add 4 tsp butter, 1 large onion, and 2 cups of beef broth. Simmer on medium low for 5-7 minutes until onions are tender.

Return browned cube steaks to skillet on medium-low covered cook for about 10 minutes or until steaks are fully cooked. Remove cover and allow to simmer for 5 minutes uncovered. Serve.
