Select the Right Cut of Steak
Before you begin, make sure to select the right cut of steak for this dish. Cubed steak is a thin cut of beef — which can be round or chuck steak – that has been already tenderized and shaped into small cubes. It is ideal because it is full of juicy flavor and cooks quickly. Look for steaks with an even thickness so they will cook evenly.
Tenderize the Steak Cubes
Before you begin to prepare the steak, it’s important to tenderize them. Sprinkle a generous pinch of salt and freshly cracked black pepper on both sides of each steak cube. Place the cubes between two sheets of plastic wrap and use the flat side of a meat mallet or rolling pin to gently pound the cubes until they are about 1/4-inch thick. This will ensure that they cook evenly and quickly.
Prepare the Herbs and Mushrooms
For the herbs, finely chop 1 tablespoon of flat-leaf parsley. Mince 2 cloves of garlic and set them aside. Next, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 8 ounces of sliced mushrooms to the pan, season with salt and pepper, and sauté until they are golden brown and tender – about 5 minutes. Stir in the minced garlic and chopped parsley just before removing them from the pan.
Sauté the Steak in Butter and Oil
Once the mushrooms have been set aside, lower the heat to medium. Add 2 tablespoons of butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet and swirl it around the pan. Season both sides of cubed steaks with salt and pepper and add them to the pan. Brown each side for 3 minutes or until golden brown, then remove them from the pan.
Reduce the heat to low and return the mushrooms and any accumulated steak juices to the skillet. Sauté the mushrooms for 2 minutes or until fragrant and reduce by half. Increase the heat to medium-low, pour in 1 cup of beef broth, and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Add the steaks back into the skillet, pressing down gently into the liquids. Simmer for 3-4 minutes or until steaks are cooked through. Serve promptly with mashed potatoes or pasta.
Simmer in a White Wine Sauce with Herbed Mushrooms
Return the mushrooms to a skillet over medium heat and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of fresh herbs. Pour in ½ cup of white wine, stirring together the mushrooms and herbs. Add cubed steaks back into the pan and simmer until they are cooked through, about 10 minutes. Serve the steak with the herbed mushrooms and enjoy!
Cubed steak is a delicious and affordable cut of meat that can be cooked up in many different ways. One of the best things about cubed steak is that it cooks quickly, making it great for a weeknight meal. To make it extra flavorful, try this recipe for a white wine sauce with herbed mushrooms to pour over the top. Begin by heating up some oil in a skillet over medium heat and adding sliced mushrooms. Cook them until they are lightly browned and then remove from the pan and set aside. In the same skillet, cook your cubed steaks and season with salt and pepper to taste. When both sides have been seared, remove the steaks from the pan and set aside as well.
