Others share there great tasting recipes with others & we want to share this recipe made for a cast iron skillet  with you.
Cubed Steak in Mushroom Sauce
5 cubed steaks
family sized can of cream of mushroom soup
with half a dozen fresh moral mushrooms added when in season.
1/2 cup water

Fry the cubed steaks in a frying pan or wok – I use my two burner camp stove  stove. Remove cubed steaks and set them on
several layers of paper towels to drain the grease. Wipe out the pan and put the steaks back in the pan with the cream of
mushroom soup and the 1/2 cup water. Stir the soup in with the water and cover. Let simmer for at least 10 minutes with a low
flame (the meat becomes more tender if you simmer for longer). Serve over rice or egg noodles.
