In this post I’m sharing a recipe for Easy Baked Cubed Beef Steaks.
One of the questions I get a lot is “how do you cook cube steak“? In the South, I think most would automatically think of country fried or chicken fried steak (same thing, different names).
There is another popular method cooking with these tenderized beef steaks and that is what is often referred to as country style steak, at least in my neck of the woods.
The recipe that I’m sharing here is sort of a short cut version of the country style steak that busy parents will love for putting an easy home cooked meal on the table.
The country fried steak is one of our most favorite meals and how I prepare it most often.
I suppose that it depends on what region of the country that you live in as to what might be most popular for cube steak.
This “back to the basics” recipe is delicious and super easy to prepare!
