Cube Steak with Lime Mojo
Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: Southwestern
Serves: 4
  • 8 medium cloves garlic, peeled
  • Kosher salt
  • 1-1/2 tsp. finely chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • ¾ cup fresh lime juice (from about 4 medium limes)
  • ½ cup fresh orange juice (from about 1 large orange)
  • 1 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 4 beef cube steaks (1-1/4 to 1-1/2 lb. total)
  • 1 Tbs. canola oil
  • ½ large white onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ large red bell pepper, cored and thinly sliced
  • .
  1. In a mortar, lightly crush the garlic with a pestle. Sprinkle with 2 tsp. salt and let sit for 5 minutes. Add the oregano, cumin, and ½ tsp. black pepper and mash until a paste forms. Transfer to a medium bowl and add the lime juice, orange juice, and sugar; whisk until well combined.
  2. Lay the steaks in a 9x13-inch glass or ceramic dish and pour the garlic mixture (the mojo) over them. Let the steaks marinate for no more than 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over high heat. Add the onions and peppers and cook, stirring constantly until they begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
  4. Add the steaks to the pan along with 2 Tbs. of the mojo (discard the rest). Cook for 2 minutes, flip, add the onions and peppers, cover, and cook for 1 minute more. Uncover and continue cooking until the meat is just cooked through, about 2 minutes more.
  5. Serve the steaks topped with the onions, peppers, and a drizzle of the cooked mojo.

      My mom fixed it alot when I was growing up. Haven’t cooked one in quite some time. We mostly had it as Chicken Fried Steak with lots of gravy. YUM

    I have to tell you, when I first saw this post, I thought it said Lime Mayo and I was very curious about steak with mayo. 😉
    This sounds much healthier and – of course- with a lime juice marinade I know I’d love it.

      Mayo anything sounds good to me. Now you’ve got me thinking about pulling out that lime oil you’ve sent me. :)

        Just saw your reply – you have got to try mayo with Chipotle Tabasco – smoky aioli. Try it on oven fries . . . because potatoes are just not sinful enough. :)

    Great, now I have bits from the Saturday Night Live version of Jeopardy going through my head, like “Sean Connery” saying things like, “Not a fan of the ladies, are ya, Trebek!”

    I like this way to use cube steak. The only way we normally do it is chicken fried steak but in my defense, that’s a pretty great way to do it!

      Well heck I must have missed that one. But I can’t tell you how many times over the years I’ve said “remember when SNL did that skit…………” And yes, I’ve only ever chicken fried any cube steak. This was a pretty good recipe, I’d probably make it again if I can keep the flour from jumping on it. :)
