Cubed Beef Steak in Wine Gravy - Yum Yum Yum!!!

This was a first for both Big Guy and I - neither of us had ever cooked, nor eaten cubed steak.  I know, deprived childhoods!  LOL!  With the 1/4 of a cow we recently purchased, we now have in our freezer several different cuts of beef - Cubed Steak being one of them.  Cubed Steak is an inexpensive cut of beef that can be tough to chew if not cooked slow and tender.  This recipe was so easy to make and AMAZING to my taste buds!  Definitely TWO THUMBS WAY UP!
Cubed Beef Steak in Wine Gravy
4 cubed steaks (our package weighed about 1.5 pounds)
4 tbsp All Purpose Flour
2 tbsp Garlic Salt, divided
2 tbsp oregano, divided
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 1/4 cup water
1 packet dry gravy mix
1/3 cup red wine (I used a Pinot Noir that we didn't really care for - though we had bought 4 bottles of it!)
1 green pepper cut into 1 inch pieces
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups fresh white mushrooms, sliced

1 -In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat.  Add sliced mushrooms with 1 tbsp garlic salt and 1 tbsp oregano.  Saute till golden.  Remove from pan, set aside for later.
2 - Mix flour, garlic salt, oregano in a plate.
3 - Dredge beef through flour mixture, coating each side.
4 - Heat oil in skillet over Medium heat.  Add coated beef into skillet, browning on each side for about 5 minutes (each side).
5 - In measuring cup, mix together dry gravy mix and water.  Pour over beef.
6 - Add wine, green pepper, and mushrooms.
7 - Simmer over low heat (or high simmer if you have that feature) for 25-30 minutes.

Serve with Rice or Mashed Potatoes!  Enjoy!
