1) Cut cube steak into 4-6 oz pieces. 2) In shallow bowl, dissolve envelope of Onion Soup mix in ½ cup of hot tap water. 3) Marinate the steak pieces in the soup mixture and let stand until all the soup is absorbed. 4) Preheat a 13" skillet (Cast Iron is best) over medium-low heat with just enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom. 5) Roll marinated steak in flour. 6) Place steaks in pre-heated skillet and fry, turning often, until juices run clear and coating is golden brown. (As you turn sprinkle lightly with pepper and salt, one time on each side) 7) Remove steaks and let drain 3-5 minutes on paper towels.
IF GRAVY is desired, add ½ to ¾ cup of water to hot skillet, scraping the bottom to loosed any crispies left from the steak coating. Add 1 -2 teaspoons of flour (dissolved in a small amount of cold water), with salt and pepper as necessary to make a smooth gravy.
YUM - YUM - YUM, Man that was good!
