OMG this is so so good. Add some mushrooms
I followed this recipe to the “T”. It was a hit!!! Jokingly, my husband said after making this, he’s going to keep me around a little longer. Lol!!

I use tomato juice instead of brown gravy. I dredge the meat in flour and then brown in pan along with onions and green peppers. After browning I add the tomato juice and let simmer for an hour. I serve with rice. My family loves it.
I've made this several times, always delicious, a family favorite. I use a low sodium gravy mix. Have not found an artificial flavor or too much sodium. I did try Janet's suggestions (Jul 21, 2019) the cube steaks were not tender in 30 minutes. I'll stick with the original recipe.
This is exactly like my grandmother made for Sunday dinner when I was a kid! I've made it using the packets of gravy as well as making my own roux gravy and to me, there isn't much difference in taste. I do, howeve, use the whole mushroom and only half the brown and only half the onion mixes. This is perfect served with mashed potatoes, veg and rolls.
This was known as "Swiss steak" when I was growing up, and was a staple on our dinner table--my mom's recipe, however, had way less sodium that this one does, ie 4000 mg of sodium from the 3 packages of gravy mix. You can halve that by using a couple of beef bouillon cubes or tsp of bouillon granules, and some instant flour to thicken the gravy--which is one of the easiest things to make. If you want mushroom flavor, slice and add some, or whirl a few in your blender or food processor as part of the cooking liquid. I'm going to even go a step further--this recipe only takes 10 minutes prep and 30 minutes simmering on the stove top, so if you--like me--rarely have morning time to start the crock pot, it doesn't take all that long on the back end. Brown the steaks when you get in from work, throw the onions and water into the skillet, and simmer for half an hour while you put out the family fires and start the potatoes, and fix a veggie side and/or salad. Thicken the gravy a few minutes before you are ready to serve. I downstarred to 4 because of the packaged gravy mix with added sodium and about $3.50-$4 unnecessary cost.

Haven't made it but would like to know if canned or bottled gravy can be used. Now I'm leery of using packaged gravy mixes.
