Le,

You are too funny! Check out cooking.com, they have tons of recipes for cube steak. I have never prepared cube steak, but remember my mom making it and cooking it for a long time at a low temp.

Good luck and I am sure you will come up with something that tastes better than your tennis shoe!

my mom always breaded it with flour & s/p then would fry it in a skillet on low heat. It's kind of the luck of the draw on whether or not it's tender or tough. We always had this with mashed potatoes and green beans.
