Easiest Cube Steak EVER!

Who doesn't love good ol' southern comfort food?  I don't eat stuff like this all the time for obvious reasons.  But some days I splurge and really enjoy myself.  I went to mom's house last night for dinner and someone had given her a super easy cube steak recipe!  Cube steak is most definitely not a 'pretty' dish, but it sure is GOOD.  I've never made it before in my life because when you get into making gravy and all that jazz I get intimidated.  Well, this is one recipe for the books...and I will make it at least once a month from now on!  It was a hit with Devin too which makes it even better!  It was so tender and the flavor was praise worthy!  I really couldn't get over it.  Not to mention it is fairly cheap to make, and I guess the bisquick topping fills you up really quick because I could only eat 1/2 a piece...which means the recipe goes a long way!  Yay!

Pam Baking Spray (Optional)
Bisquick (Regular, Heart Healthy, or Gluten Free...your choice)
Light Ranch Dressing
Cube Steak
Butter (We used Parkay Squeeze Butter)

Spray your baking dish with Pam (I've cooked this without greasing the dish and the breading on the bottom came off but it was still good, that's why it's optional ;)!)
Coat Cube Steak in Ranch Dressing (Both Sides)
Sprinkle Bisquick on both sides of steak
Place Coated Cubed Steak In a Baking Dish in a Single Layer
Squeeze a little butter on top of each piece of steak
Bake at 375 for 45 Minutes
ENJOY

This sounds great! I'm guessing since you specified Light Ranch you mean the already prepared kind, not the powdered kind, correct? Thanks for your info! :)

Kelsey Almond said...

Yep! The ranch in a bottle! I hope you enjoy the recipe! :))

Steph said...

Omg this was so good I made it tonite and everyone loved it needless to say there was one leftover. Thanks for sharing the recipe

Kelsey Almond said...

Yay! I hope you enjoy it!

Kelsey Almond said...

You are very welcome! I'm so happy your family loved it! :)

Missy Conkle said...

My daughter liked it so much she went the next day to buy more so she could take it to work lol

Kelsey Almond said...

That is awesome! I always make extra so I can have leftovers too! ;)

Megan Ward said...

Do you need the butter?

Kelsey Almond said...

I'm sure there is some type of substitute that would work but I have never tried to change it up! If you take it out completely... it probably won't be very tasty! :-\

Megan Ward said...

Does the light ranch make a difference?

Kelsey Almond said...

It needs ranch but I've never been able to taste a difference between the light & the regular!

Lashauna Moore said...

When baking do you cover the dish?

harleyblueswoman said...

it was tender...but stuck to pan...so only one side kept it's coating...didn't really look like the picture...:(

Kelsey Almond said...

I've never had mine stick! Sorry about that! Greasing the pan might help! And mine has never looked the same way twice but always tastes good! :)

Kelsey Almond said...

I didn't! :)

Can you substitute the bisquick for something else?

beatrice okker said...

i made this tonight and it tasted great but allthe breading came off. idk what i did wrong. i did use a glass dish and a electric stove would that have something to do with it.loved the taste and do want to make it again

I made this tonight and I must say we really like this recipe....tthank you for sharing.

If you allow breaded meats to rest on a wire rack for 15 minutes before cooking, it will help the breading adhere to the meat and not come off. I also spray the pan/dish liberally with non-stick spray.

marsha said...

So do I season the meat at all?

Kelsey Almond said...

Nope! The butter, ranch & bisquick provide all the flavoring you need! Enjoy! :)

I made this last night and my breading also came off but it was super easy and really yummy! My 2 year old even pointed out that it was yummy for his tummy!

Kelsey Almond said...

Aw that is so precious! Glad your family enjoyed it! :)

This is REALLY good! I got sad when the steaks were gone, lol!

Amanda B said...

Have you tried it with the ranch powder instead of the ranch dressing in a bottle? Just curious if it made a difference?

Kelsey Almond said...

No I haven't! The ranch is not only for flavor, but for helping the bisquick stick to the meat and for making the meat moist! If you just use a dry seasoning it wouldn't do those things! :-)

Linda Reid said...

I'm going to try this soon, but after reading the comments about the breading sticking to the pan, I may line the dish with Reynolds Non-Stick Aluminum foil. (And by the way, nothing I fix ever looks anything like the pictures on Pinterest. My kitchen is not my friend).

Going to try this with deer cube tonight.

Going to try this with deer cube tonight.

Lisa Likes said...

HOW MUCH of everything? I don't see cups - or anything?

Kelsey Almond said...

I didn't measure. And the measurements will change based on how much steak you are fixing anyway! I basically squeeze ranch on each side and just spread it(the kind in the bottle)on both sides until the steak was coated well. Then sprinkled the bisquick on both sides to cover. Then I just squeezed about a quarter size dollop of butter on each. The recipe is kind of one of those things you can't mess up unless you drown it in butter so there are really no perfect measurements! :)

Kelsey Almond said...

Awesome! I'll have to try this on deer meat as well!

Kelsey Almond said...

That's a great idea or you could even use parchment paper! Mine either, so don't feel bad! :)

Kelsey Almond said...

Yay!

Kelsey Almond said...

Great tip! Thank you! :)

Kelsey Almond said...

So glad you liked it! :)

Kelsey Almond said...

Hmmm, I'm not sure what caused that! I get "Pam happy" when I cook so that's probably why mine never sticks haha!

Melissa said...

sounds great! Did you tenderize the cube steak first? Also, what did you serve along with it?

Amommabird said...

Could I use cube steak that is still frozen, lol? Got it out of the freezer, but it's still frozen and the family needs to eat tonight...bad mom alert

Mary said...

Tried this last night and it was REALLY good!! I did not change a thing! Thanks for the super easy recipe!

Lynette Williams said...

Did u use the pancake bisquick or the biscuit bisquick

Lynette Williams said...

I would like to make this tonight but I need to know which bisquick to use or does it not mattet.

Crystal said...

I don't have bisquick. Do you think I could use panko bread crumbs?

45 minutes seems like a long time for cube steaks, these weren't dry? How thick were your steaks?
