Description

One of the most simple things you can whip up for dinner. Serve it with a potato side dish and a big green salad…or smash it between two pieces of white bread. Heaven.

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds Cube Steak (round Steak That's Been Extra Tenderized)
  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Seasoned Salt
  • 3 teaspoons Ground Black Pepper, Or To Taste
  • Salt, For Seasoning Meat
  • ½ cups Canola Oil (more If Needed)
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter

Preparation

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Mix together flour, seasoned salt, and pepper.

Season both sides of steaks with salt and pepper. Dredge each piece in flour mixture, pressing to coat with as much flour as possible.

Add butter to pan right before frying.

When butter is melted, fry pieces of steak in butter/oil mixture. Flip when sides are deep golden brown and cook about 1 minute on the other side.

Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Serve immediately.

YUM.

Sounds sooo good! My Mama Rosie used to make this and we always had sandwiches made just the way Ree mentions. Can’t wait to have one again. Thanks, Ree!

I was actually sad when mine were gone and there were no second helpings.They are so tasty! I love how easy it is to prepare, and you can stretch a cheap piece of meat quite far for a family. Will definitely make this again!!!

This was really excellent when just out of the pan! My husband and i gobbled them up!

But- they don’t hold well. Even a couple of hours later, the coating had gotten soggy (unlike chicken-fried steak).

I make my own cube steaks, since we get round from our meat CSA. It’s pretty easy- score each side lightly, then pound them flat.

I’ve made this three times now. It’s been great every time. My mom used to make it and I mentioned it to her, and she advised to soak the steak in milk overnight, and that was a great idea.
Also, the third time they didn’t have ‘cube steak’ at the grocery store, and I asked the butcher about it. He replied that he could ‘make me some up’. I agreed, and I got…’Cube steak’!
What did you do, I asked? He said he simply got a piece of round steak and ‘ran it through the tenderizer’….just FYI, if you don’t see it packaged, ask for them to run some round through the tenderizer!

I’m from the south and love a good country fried steak. I really liked this recipe – I’ve never added butter to my oil before frying but it worked wonderfully. My husband loved the meal and I got a taste of home. :)

Just made this for my kids tonight and it was a HUGE hit! Even my son, who doesn’t like red meat, ate all of his steak. Delicious. Thanks, Ree!
