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 have always liked cube steak except that one out of three that is inedible . Most favored in the summer with a lot of fresh veggies ,corn,cukes,tomatoes,green onions,and a lot of radishes & SALT.

  • Karen  says:

    Can you use cream of chicken instead of cream of mushroom, because my mom is allergic to mushrooms.

    • Becky Kerstetter  says:

      Since it’s a beef dish maybe use cream of celery?

      • Jan  says:

        Try cream of onion

  • Siew Leng  says:

    What exactly is a cube steak? I have never come across anything like that in our local supermarket. Is it brisket, knuckle, flank, chuck, what?

    • melissa  says:

      Do you know what a minute steak is? Cube steak or minute steak is a cut of beef, usually top round or top sirloin, tenderized by fierce pounding with a meat tenderizer

  • Joann Hughes  says:

    This is by far the best and easiest cube steak recipe ever! Double points for it being a slow cooker recipe! Thank you so much for the recipe!

  • Paula  says:

    I would add a little Kitchen Bouquet to make the color darker so it looks better. I would add garlic and sub wine for water.

  • Cyndi clark  says:

    How long you cook this in crock pot

  • Cyndi clark  says:

    Does it taste good with one can of mushrooms soup and one can of cream of chicken would that taste good.

  • Sylvie  says:

    do I dilute the cream of mushroom soup? If not, this sounds like it would be salty. I’d love to make this tonight.

  • Donna  says:

    We bread & fry our cube steak rather than put in raw meat. My family loves this meal.

    • Erika H  says:

      I seared the steaks this time, hoping it will keep them in one-ish piece!

  • Lissy  says:

    I always make it this way with carrots, celery, onions, and potatoes added. no water, just two cans of cream of mushroom, some chopped onion and garlic, and the onion soup mix. max a lovely roast

  • Sabrina  says:

    This was pretty good but it was a bit too salty. I think next time I’d use low-sodium soup.

    • Nadette  says:

      Instead of the dry onion soup mix (that most likely caused the saltiness) use a dry packet of Onion Gravy! I like the little bit milder taste of the gravy mix! Now I have to go and make it again soon, my mouth is watering!!! Thank you for reminding me how yummy it is!

    […] always comes out too rubbery, and there’s always that bite you can’t chew. I found this recipe on Pinterest and decided to try it out. The ingredients were simple, and all the stuff I already […]

  • Patricia  says:

    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.

    • Midge  says:

      You can definitely make this in the pressure cook. Brown the meat in the pressure then add the onions. I mix the soups with water and pour that in. Use about 3/4 water and cook at high temp for 15 min. Then let the temp drop on its own – should take another 15 min. I also do stuffed peppers in the pressure cooker – cooks about the same time and the beauty of it is that you don’t have to precook the peppers! Hope this helps.

  • 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
