Comfort food for fall: Cube Steak Stew

One of the things I like about doing our grocery shopping in the morning is that there are always packages of reduced meat.  These days, however, there are always a lot of people who want to look over these bargains.  Sometimes I need to return to the meat case later to have an opportunity to see what's there.  I will often pick up meat that wasn't on my list if I think I can use it and if it's a particularly good buy, even if I'm not sure yet what I will do with it.

Yesterday I found some packages of cube steak marked down, and picked one up, remembering a cube steak stew recipe I had liked years ago.  Of course, when I went to  look for the recipe, it was nowhere to be found.  I looked online for a similar recipe and struck gold on the second try.  Here is the link: Cube Steak Stew.

As one reviewer suggested, I left out the tomato sauce and substituted 2 cups water instead.  I also left out the green pepper because I didn't have any, and it was wonderful without it.  I had to use Italian style diced tomatoes because that was all I had on hand, and we liked it a lot with those flavors.  In the future, I may try using frozen mixed vegetables rather than peas, and I think the small whole onions would be a nice addition, rather than the chopped onion.

I will definitely make this recipe again.  It was quick and easy and very tasty.  Perfect for a nippy fall night.  I made homemade biscuits to go along with it, which made for a very nice supper.


  1. The recipe looks great. I will have to give it a try. I can't believe that summer is over! It is definately already fall where I live too!

  2. Hi Darlene!

    Nice to see you here again. Hope you do enjoy the recipe if you try it. I'll be making it again next time I find a good price on cube steak.

    I agree -- can't believe summer is over. It went by in a blur. I can't believe I am once again stoking the wood furnace!
