Best Oven Country style steak in gravy Easy Recipe

Updated on August 14, 2013

Easy and Delicious!

This one of my favorite dinners when I am in need of good ole country cookin'. Try this one yourself. It is extremely easy and down right DELICIOUS! I purposely left out the nutrition information on this one. When you are eating food of this type, dieting is not your main goal. Once in a while, we need some old fashion comfort food. THIS is definitely it!

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 4 hours
Ready in: 4 hours 15 min
Yields: 6 servings


  • 2 pounds beef cubed steak
  • 2 cups flour, self rising
  • 1/2 teaspoon black or white pepper, ground
  • 1 teaspoon table or sea salt
  • water
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, optional

  1. Rinse cubed steak, cutting larger pieces to about hand size, and set aside to drain. Do not dry. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place all other ingredients except water in large mixing bowl and mix thouroughly.
  3. Place cubed steak in mixture one at a time and coat well. Place each piece in an oven safe deep dish. Glass dishes or pyrex works best. It is fine if pieces are stacked on top of each other. This actually makes it turn out better.
  4. Pour water slowly onto the meat so that it is about 1 inch above the meat. Some of the flour mixture will wash off of the meat during this step. This is OK.
  5. Place in preheated oven at 350 degrees. Let cook for approx. 4 hours, checking and stirring occasionally, about once an hour.
  6. Remove from oven when tender and gravy has browned. Let cool and serve with your choice of sides. My favorites are mashed potatoes, early green peas, and biscuits.

      Your recipe sounds great and easy to make. I found that if you add a picture or two, it will attract more readers. I don't have actual photograghs for my recipes so I look through Wikimedia until a find a free picture that looks similar.

      Put it in the oven in the oven at 12 it was done at 4. I have never had cube steak turn out so tender. Delicious. We had a baked potato and salad with it. Great meal.

      Great idea! I have never tried it that way. Was it very tender?

      Hi Cynthia. This is really good. I had no time for a plan ahead meal so I just dropped it all in the pressure cooker for 30 minutes. Worked pretty well too. If I get the chance to do it the long way, I will. I know nothing beats the taste of slow cooking. Thanks so much for sharing. Oh...I only used a cup of flour.

      Yes, it is definitely a plan ahead meal....but worth the wait!

      Sounds lovely. Easy to make, but if someone is hungry, they have to be very patient for it to cook.

      As long as you use the cubed pork, yes. I have tried that as well and it is good too. You may not need to bake it quite as long. Happy cooking!

      Can I replace steak with pork? I don't eat steak at all. Your recipe looks easy to follow.
