Crockpot Cube Steak and Gravy

There are several meats that you can always find either on sale or marked down. That is chicken (either in drumsticks, quarters or thighs) and cube steak.

The thing with cube steak is that it can be pretty tough. I make it several different ways but this is our all-time favorite. It is so tender it just falls apart with the stir of a wooden spoon. Yep, seriously. It isn’t a pretty dish, but it sure is delicious! When Bric first saw it he was like eww, this looks like dog food…but after he tasted it he was really impressed. He also mentioned that it wasn’t like regular cube steak that you had to cut with a utility knife. He loved the taste and how tender it is. I also had a friend try it out and she says it is now her families favorite!!

I told you it wasn’ t pretty. But I do promise it is good!!

We like it with about everything. Here I served it with green beans, sweet potatoes and a crescent roll. But it is really good over rice or noodles or with mashed potatoes. That way you have something to smother in the gravy. We just sopped our gravy up with our crescent rolls this time…so if that is what you have, I give you permission to do the same.

Just don’t tell my Momma, she would have a hissie fit just thinking of me sopping something up on my plate and would berate me from here to yonder knowing I said it was ok for you to as well.

    I loved the idea of adding about 1/3 cup of wine – then I plan to serve over egg noodles with a dollop of sour cream – almost like a stroganoff!!! Love a lot of the different ideas!!!

  • Donna Ausmus  says:

    When I made this dish my whole family looked at it and was worried, the worry turned to 2nd helpings. It’s a wonderful dish!

    • The Jilly Bean  says:

      Thank you Donna! But you are right…it is so ugly…LOL! for a long time I wanted something pretty to surpass this as the number one post, but it just hasn’t happened. I tell people all the time that it looks awful, but it sure is good.

  • Darcy  says:

    Does the gravy from the ingredients?

    • Darcy  says:

      Come from* sorry!

    • The Jilly Bean  says:

      Yes Darcy, it makes a gravy. You don’t have to do anything but throw it all in the crockpot and wait for it to finish cooking.

  • Rosemarie  says:

    what size crock pot did you use.

  • Erica  says:

    What can I use other than cream of mushroom, since I’m allergic to them? This looks delicious and I would love to make it for my family.

    • The Jilly Bean  says:

      I would use cream of onion…any cream soup will work though.

  • Kayla  says:

    do you unthaw the meat or do you put the steaks in the crock pot frozen?

    • The Jilly Bean  says:

      You can do either. If I remember I will thaw them out, if not, I throw them in frozen.

  • Paul  says:

    I made this today, pretty good. I cooked it for 6 1/2 hours on low in crockpot. Because of the cooking method, the meat comes out with a very grainy texture. If I make it again, I will also add some chopped garlic and sliced onion.

  • Laproch  says:

    Could this be made in a pressure cooker as opposed to the crock pot? Just wondering if it would translate well.

    • The Jilly Bean  says:

      I am not sure Laproch. I have never used a pressure cooker so I can not say if it would translate well or not.

  • Holly Meadows  says:

    This is a STUPID , BUT is the meat supposed to be pink?

    • bobbe  says:

      It can be when I’ve not seared the meat. I always brown my meat before I put it in the crock pot. I just don’t like putting raw meat in to a crock pot. That’s just me. I cook this on high for 4 hours in my crock pot. Turns out fine every time. I’ve been cooking this recipe for years. It’s my go too recipe for something good that usually no one in my area cooks. I use for church sunday school socials. easy and soooo good. I’ve even put the potatoes in and corn on cob one dish meal so good and easy bobbe
