1 small head cabbage, shredded
4 potatoes, peeled and sliced
salt to taste
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
1/2 (10.75 ounce) can water
1 small onion, diced
4 pork chops
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish.
Place a layer of shredded cabbage into baking dish and then a layer of sliced potatoes. Repeat cabbage and potatoes and salt.
Simmer the soup, water and diced onion. Pour over cabbage and potatoes.
In a skillet, brown each pork chop in a small amount of oil and place on top of mixture. Bake for 1 1/2 hours uncovered or until chops are tender.
Boil the macaroni in a 2 quart saucepan in plenty of water until tender, about 7 minutes. Drain. In a medium saucepan, mix butter and cheese. Stir until the cheese melts. In a slow cooker, combine cheese/butter mixture and add the eggs, sour cream, soup, salt, milk, mustard and pepper and stir well. Then add drained macaroni and stir again. Set the slow cooker on low setting and cook for 3 hours, stirring occasionally.

4-6 cube steaks
flour (for dredging)
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons butter
4-8 tablespoons butter
4-8 tablespoons flour(approximately)
2 cups milk
salt and pepper
For steak: Melt butter & oil in an electric skillet set on about 350°F
Dredge cube steak in flour seasoned with salt & pepper mixture. (I have done it dipping it in egg first & didn't think it made that much difference).
Fry about 5 minutes on each side. (If you over cook it gets tough.) Move cooked steak to a small cookie sheet & place in a warmed oven.
For the gravy: Pour any butter and oil out of the skillet, being careful to not pour off the browned flour that are in the pan. Loosen the bits of browned flour from the pan with your spatula.
Turn the heat down to about 250°F and melt 4-8 Tbls of butter stirring the pan drippings into it. (The more butter you start with, the more gravy you'll have. My family likes LOTS of gravy!).
Once the butter has browned a bit add enough flour to absorb all the butter, mixing well. (You will use approximately the same amount of flour as butter.).
Start adding milk about 1/2 cup at a time while using a whisk to work it into the flour/butter mixture. After I have added about 2 cups of milk I start using water. Add liquid until the gravy is as thin as you like it. This takes a little time especially when you are first getting used to it. Add some liquid, mix, add liquid, mix --
Once the gravy is the right consistency add some salt & pepper until it is to your liking (I used quite a bit of salt actually).
Remove steak from oven & serve with mashed potatoes!
(Hint: have the rest if the meal done before you start the steak & gravy. Once you are into making the gravy you won't be able to do anything else because you have to stir it constantly so it doesn't stick or burn).
