When it comes to favorite meats to cook in your Instant Pot pressure cooker, cube steak might not be the first dish that comes to mind. However, I encourage you to give this recipe a try. Cube steak is very lean, often top round or top sirloin, and it’s been pre-tenderized making it more enjoyable than some other leaner cuts of beef. Add to that the fact that Instant Pot pressure cooking makes meat even more delicious, this Instant Pot Baked Cubed Steak is well worth trying for your next easy family dinner.

Cooking with Cube Steak

Cube steak is beef that has been run through a mechanical tenderizer, called a meat cuber or swissing machine. The resulting steak is called a cube steak (or swiss steak) because of the indentations made by the tenderizer.

Beef Cube Steaks

Cube steak is both inexpensive and lean, but even with tenderizing can be a more tough type of meat. Often skillet-fried, consider Instant Pot cooking to keep your cube steak tender.
