Are you talking about one step? By the time you do a half assed repair you can pull out the step, form it with 2x4's and pour a new one.
With all the supplies, it's a four hour job.
No, the repair you offer won't work. I don't think any will.

If it is a pre-cast step that was bought and set in place you can break it apart with a sledge hammer usually.
A poured in place built on site step may take a jack hammer.

great example of pre·science (the fact of knowing something before it takes place; foreknowledge.)
while i was at lunch on they way to fix the step I got a call that one of the renters had broken thru the step of a precast unit at another unit

if things didn't fall apart I would be out of a job!
