How To Make Smothered Steak

Spice up family dinners with this gravy smothered steak! Plus, they're topped with onion rings for extra layers of scrumptious flavors.

Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 30 mins
Total: 50 mins


  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 4 pcs cube steaks, butcher tenderized
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ cup oil
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 beef bouillon cube
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced into rings


  1. In a small bowl mix 4 seasonings. Place flour in a flat-surfaced dish. Save unused flour for smothering. Sprinkle the front and back sides of each steak piece and rub deep into groves of steak.

  2. Heat oil to medium-high in skillet. Dredge each piece in flour, press in with fingertips. Re-dredge in flour again and place carefully in hot oil for 1 minute and then turn back heat to medium.

  3. Fry steak for 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Remove, drain on a separate plate. Remove all but 2 to 3 tablespoons of oil, over medium-high heat, sprinkle with 3 tablespoons of flour, whisking until well mixed and roux browns.

  4. Add water, bouillon cube, and remaining seasoning. Mix until gravy begins to thicken slightly. Test taste for spice as this is the time to adjust.

  5. Replace steak back in gravy and spread onion rings over the tops.
  6. Cover and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
