Cube steak? Pan fry.

Yep. Salt and pepper.

Maybe fry some onions and peppers too.

Chicken fried, or else make chili with it (with beans)

First place it on a rack on a plate in your fridge for half a day, this will let most of the blood drain out. This has made a big difference in getting my kids to eat deer/elk. Cook & season any way you desire, but only cook to med. rare at most otherwise you will have shoe leather (very low fat content). Enjoy

Pan fry it.

It's very lean meat, be careful not to overcook.

big +1

try laying down a base of sliced onions in the skillet with a little water and flour, let them carmelize while stirring in the meat.  we've even cooked up an old buck this way and you get no gamey or wild taste.

Another trick is to soak it in milk overnight. Gets rid of the gamey taste. I like the way venison tastes, but some don't

Put some flour on a plate.  Season the flour with salt & pepper or your favorite seasoning salt-type stuff.  Mix.  Cover steak with a light but complete coating of flour mixture before frying in a pan with a small amount of  bacon grease, lard, shortening or oil.

Medium to medium-well is probably best.

When I glanced at the title I read ' venison TUBE  steak, how do i want to cook it?'. I was thinking that we usually threw that part away...

How old was the buck. Young could be good fried, and it's hard to go wring with carmelized onions. Older buck I'd braise or use in chili/stew.

Sprinkle with Cajun Seasoning. Dip in flour to coat. Fry it on med-hi to brown then turn it down to med low cover and let it cook slowly to make it more tender. My MIL cooks it low and slow for about 20-25 minutes. mmm mmm good and tender!
