Yield: 2 Servings

Level: Medium


  • 2 pieces of cubed steak
  • 2 russet potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 3 cloves of garlic, peeled and grated
  • 1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp. + 3 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1 Tbsp. beef bullion
  • 1 cup + 3 Tbsp. flour
  • 6 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 heaping Tbsp. sour cream
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 eggs
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Canola Oil


Garlic Mashed Potatoes:

Bring a pot of water to a boil.  Add a handful of salt to the water, followed by the potatoes.  Return the water to a boil and let cook until the potatoes are fork-tender.  Drain into a colander and return to the pot.  Melt 4 tablespoons of butter into 1/2 cup of cream over low heat.  Using a potato ricer, or a masher, mash the potatoes and add the garlic and sour cream.  Slowly add the cream/butter mixture , stirring to combine.

Cubed Steak:

Sprinkle a 1 teaspoon of seasoned salt, garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper onto both sides of cubed steaks.  In a separate dish/plate, lightly beat the eggs.  In another dish, preferably a deep dish with sides, add 1 cup of the flour, 1 tablespoon each of seasoned salt, onion powder and black pepper.  Using opposite hands for the coating process, or a pair of tongs, dredge meat into the flour mixture.  Once coated, shake off excess flour and dip into beaten egg.  Coat both sides and then return to flour mixture to coat both sides.  Return steak to plate.  Repeat the same process with the second piece of steak.  Coat the bottom of a large skillet with oil and heat on medium-high heat.  When hot, add the steak to the pan.  Let cook on each side for approximately 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove the steaks from the oil and set aside.  Lower the heat to low and add 3 tablespoons of flour, 1 tablespoon of beef bullion and 2 teaspoons of the season salt to the oil.  With a wooden spoon, stir the flour into the oil and cook for 2-3 minutes.  Add 1 cup of water and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  When gravy thickens, turn off the heat and add 2 tablespoons of butter, stirring to incorporate.

Plate the garlic mashed potatoes and cubed steak and drizzle gravy on top.  If desired, sprinkle chopped fresh parsley over the plate for added flavor and color.  Chopped fresh chives work well in place of the parsley.
