Smothered Steak Deeply Southern

1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
4 pieces cube steaks (butcher tenderized)
1 cup flour
1/2 cup oil
2 cups water
1 beef bouillon cube
1 large yellow onion, sliced rings

In small bowl mix 4 seasonings.
Place flour in a flat surfaced dish (save unused flour for smothering).
Sprinkle front and back side of each steak piece and rub deep into groves of steak.
Heat oil to medium high in skillet (cast iron is best).
Dredge each piece in flour, press in with finger tips. Re-dredge in flour again and place carefully in hot oil for 1 minute and then turn back heat to medium.
Fry steak 4-5 minutes on each side. Remove, drain on a separate plate.
Remove all but 2-3 Tbs of oil, over medium high heat, sprinkle with 3 Tbs flour, whisking until well mixed and rue browns.
Add water, bouillon cube and remaining seasoning. Mix until gravy begins to thicken slightly. Test taste for spice as this is the time to adjust (salt or water).
Replace steak back in gravy and spread onion rings over the tops.
Cover and simmer 30-40 minutes.

I have made this a couple of times now and our family loves it! I did alter it a bit since my son is on a special diet. We used white rice flour to dredge the meat in and to make the gravy. Thankyou for posting such a yummy yet simple recipie!
