I either slice it and cook with peppers and a little onion for fahitas (with LC tortillas) or season well and coat with pork rinds and fry it.

One of my favorites! I marinate it and just fry it up, sometimes with pepper and onion, sometimes plain. We actually had it just plain (marinated) last night - just a quick sear on both sides - and it was the best I've ever made.

I dip it in beaten eggwhite seasoned with Louisiana hot sauce, then dredge well in Carbquik, then fry in bacon grease for a couple minutes each side til browned and a bit crispy. LOVE it!

You can make a pan gravy too, add Carbquik to the pan drippings, stir til browned a bit, add beef broth and simmer til thickened. Add a splash of cream too if you like.

Yeah, its not real at my house without that gravy...

You could also make a kind of chili sauce-gravy, aka Swiss steak idea..

I haven't used the crushed pork rinds as a breading yet. Still unsure about it. I think that I will have to try it out. Sure am wanting that chicken fried steak.

Go for it! I promise, they don't taste anything like pork rinds when you fry with them. They don't stay super crunchy either, but you get that great flavor and can mix spices with them like you normally would with flour.

Pork rinds don't make that great of a breading IMO. Carbquik is much better. I mix carbquik & parm. cheese. I make chicken fried steak this way all the time. But I use pork cube steaks instead of beef.

Honestly, I didn't know there were other ways to prepare "cube steaks" I thought they were just for chicken frys... silly southern me!!

I usually cook mine up in some soy sauce and garlic for an oriental-tasting beef. This sounds good . . . may have to go shopping today!

I went ahead and chicken fried the cube steak. I breaded it with the Carbquick/ Parmesan combo. The seasonings I used were Cholula dry seasoning, onion salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Turned out pretty good.

I also use the pork cube steaks and bread them with almond meal seasoned with garlic and onion powders and a little bit of poultry seasoning.
Then fry them up in butter and serve them with sauteed mushrooms on top.

Ok have done this for years

Fry the steaks in butter on med/high until brown. Remove from pan to plate and cover to keep warm. Add as many slices mushrooms as you like to pan with a little more butter. Saute until slightly browns. Remove from pan and put with warming steak.

Now add about 2 tablespoons of mustard to the pan with a little broth or white wine and simmer until all the good stuff comes off the bottom of the pan.

When done, put steak and mushrooms back in pan and heat through. Salt and pepper to taste and u are done. Enjoy!!

Brown Cube steak in butter. Remove from pan. Add diced onions and mushrooms and sautee until onions are transparent. Add a pour of cream and a large dollop of sour cream and wisk until thickened. Place cube steak back into pan and simmer for 5-8 more minutes. If cream and separate, no problem. Just plate cube steaks, add another splash of cream and whisk again! Pour over cube steak and enjoy! I serve with Cauliflower. The two go together nicely.

This recipe is from Ree Drummond....Pioneer Woman. It is sooooooo good! I make this all the time! I just half the recipe.

Ingredients
■1 whole Large (or 2 Small) Onions
■2 sticks Butter (lots And Lots Of Butter)
■2 pounds (to 3 Pounds) Cube Steak (tenderized Round Steak That's Been Extra Tenderized)
■Lawry's Seasoned Salt (or Similar Seasoned Salt)
■˝ cups (approximately) Worcestershire Sauce
■Tabasco Sauce, To Taste

Slice onions and cook in 1/4 stick butter until soft and light brown. Remove and set aside.

Slice cube steak against the grain. Season with Lawry’s.

Heat 2 tablespoons butter over high heat (in same skillet) until melted and beginning to brown. Add meat in single layer. Cook one side until brown, then flip and cook until brown, about a minute on both sides.

Add 1/2 cup (at least) Worcestershire sauce, 5 to 6 shakes Tabasco, and 2 tablespoons butter. Add cooked onions. Stir to combine.

This is the only way I make cube steak....I serve it as a hot wrap using flatouts and add mozz or provolone cheese

I fry in butter, with mushrooms and onions. Then I pile the mushrooms and onions on top and put a piece of swiss to melt!

I also forgot to add....it's much easier to cut cube steaks into strips when they are partially frozen.

I saw a real easy recipe for carnitas.

salt
pepper
juice of 1 lime
water

Mix all with the beef squares in a large saucepan. Use enough water to cover the cubes. Simmer for 1+ hours. The water will evaporate and soak in the beef, making it tender. Meat can be pulled if you don't want to eat the large chunks.
