Family Favorite Swiss Steak With Tomato Gravy


1 lb cube steak
1 medium onion, sliced
4 to 6 mushrooms, fresh
1/2 c all-purpose flour
1/2 c Panko bread crumbs
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp Season-All (optional)
1/2 tsp taco seasoning mix (optional)
2 Tbsp cooking oil
1 Tbsp butter
1 tsp garlic, minced
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 pkg dry onion soup mix
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp tomato paste
2 c water or beef broth
1/4 c dry red wine
salt and pepper, to taste (for beef)


1. Pre-heat oil and butter in heavy skillet on medium to med-high heat. While heating, slice an onion and cut mushrooms into quarters.
2. Slightly pound the cube steaks. One pound of cube steak should equal 4 portions of the beef. If not, cut the steaks to make 4 servings. Salt and pepper to taste.
3. Mix together the flour, Panko, and seasonings (NOTE: instead of Season All seasoning, we use Bucks Multi-Purpose Seasoning, which is a great seasoning for many foods).
4. Dredge the cube steaks in the flour mixture and place in the heated skillet. Cook approximately 3 minutes on each side then remove from the skillet.
