Cubed Steak with Poutine

We are at a time in this country where we have to make due with what we have. Working in a grocery store the last few weeks has been interesting. Running out of basic supplies has become the norm. Chicken and ground beef are hard to keep on the shelves.
My wife went shopping while I manned a cash register. She came home with three very nice looking cubed steaks.

3 or 4 8 ounce cubed steaks
6 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon granulated onion
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups no salt added beef stock
cooking spray
2 potatoes
1/4 cup cheese curds or cheese pieces

Preheat a cast iron pan over medium flame Coat pan liberally. Mix all the dry ingredients well and divide.
Place 1/2 the mixture in a zip top bag. Shake to cover the steaks well with flour. Remove steaks from bag shaking off the excess flour.
Add steaks to pan and brown for about 5 minutes on each side.
Remove steaks from pan and add butter.
When butter has melted, add the remaining flour, mixing well. Add the beef stock and return meat to pan.

Place pan in a preheated 325 degree oven. Allow to cook until tender, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

While the steak is in the oven, peel the potatoes and slice into fries. Liberally coat potatoes with cooking spray. Add them to your air fryer preheated to 400 degrees. Cooking time will be based on how thick or thin you cut your fries. Remove when golden brown.
Plate and cover fries with the extra gravy from skillet. Add cheese curds or pieces.
