This cube steak stew is easy on the budget and it makes a tasty family meal. The stew includes corn, but carrots, mushrooms, or pearl onions may be substituted.

The mushroom gravy mix adds flavor and helps to thicken the stew. If you aren't a fan of mushrooms, use plain brown gravy mix or onion gravy mix.
