Cube Steak

 

What is Cube Steak:

Cube steak or cubed steak is a type of beef cut that is known to be a tough piece of meat that is tenderized. Usually it is either top round or top sirloin when purchased. It is then flattened by pounding and tenderized before cooking. Cube steak got its name because of the indentations that are on the cube steak after it has been tenderized by a meat tenderizer.

Tips for Making Cube Steak:

  • Let rest: It is best to allow the steaks time to rest out of the cold refrigerator about 20 to 30 minutes ahead of cooking time.
  • Preparing cube steak: Be sure to remove any moisture from the cube steak by patting it dry with a paper towel. This will ensure the steak will sear evenly as well as have a crispy crust.
  • Tenderize meat: Simply pound the steak using a meat tenderizer. This will ensure the quality of your steak and how juicy it is when being cooked.
  • Overcook: It is best to not overcook the cube steak. It will become rubbery and hard to eat.
  • Thicken gravy: Mix together a slurry or roux of cornstarch or flour with water. Slowly add it to the mushroom gravy for the desired thickness.
  • Beef broth: For more flavor add in beef broth instead of water.

How to Store Cube Steak:

  • Can you make it ahead of time? Yes, the cube steak can be prepared and tenderized ahead of time to save even more time when cooking. Also, the seasoning and mushroom gravy can be made ahead of time separately and stored in the refrigerator for 24 to 48 hours ahead of time.
  • Can you freeze cube steak? Yes! This makes a great freezer meal. Let cool completely after being cooked and place in a ziplock bag or airtight container. Add the steak with the gravy and freeze laying flat for 1 to 3 months. When ready to warm up, place in the refrigerator overnight to thaw completely.
  • How to reheat cube steak: Cube steak can be warmed up in the oven, on a skillet or in the microwave. Gently warm up the cube steak slowly until it is warmed through.
