Cube Steak with Sauteed Mushrooms and Onions

We always called these minute steaks...
because they cook quickly in just about
a minute on each side. 
We like them smothered with sauteed
onions and mushrooms. 
 Slice one onion and 8-oz of mushrooms.
 I like to use a cast iron skillet for this because
I can get it hot enough to sear and brown the meat.
 First, quickly saute the onions and mushrooms
in a little oil, adding salt and pepper until golden.
 Remove back to the plate.
 Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel.
Generously salt and pepper them. Add a coating
of oil to the bottom of the pan and make sure
it's very hot. Add the steaks and brown quickly
on one side for about a minute. Flip and
 brown the other side another minute.
 Return the onions and mushroom to the pan
 for a minute to mingle the flavors. You can add a
dash of Worcestershire sauce if desired.
Remove to the warmed plates.
 I like to serve this with rice and add the cooked
 rice to the pan and give a stir to get up all the
browned bits and help flavor the rice.
 Heep on the mushrooms and onions.
Serve with rice or mashed potatoes.
Start those cooking first.
Simple, simple, simple.

  1. Oh yummy! I love steak like this. Thanks dear Rita!
    Big hugs,

  2. Looks fantastic! Look forward to giving this a try!

  3. My steaks will never be mediocre again thanks to you.

  4. they are great if you like raw meat in the4 middle.

    1. You can see in my pictures that there is no raw meat in the middle. perhaps your heat wasn't high enough or your steaks were too thick. Check for doneness.

    2. Well, that wasn't very nice. Perhaps that is why you posted "anonymously". I'm making this tonight. Can't wait!
