Cube Steaks and Gravy in the Slow Cooker

Oh goodness!  This one is a winner.

The boy people (and man person, too) who live in this house really loved this meal.  It was a fight-over-the-leftovers kind of love.

I don’t blame them either. I loved it too.

Generally, I’m against taking time to brown meat before tossing it in the slow cooker.  But in a few cases, it’s a step not to be skipped.  This is one of those cases.  It only takes a few extra minutes and the results are so worth the effort.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. This looks so good for a cold night.

  2. This looks like it would be good with some venison steaks I have in the freezer. I just got a dutch oven for my birthday and I love it as you can brown the meat and then “slow cook” it in the oven on a lower temp. So I might adapt this for the dutch oven.

    Love your website!

  3. It looks good except for the packaged brown gravy which tastes like paste. Awful. Instead of using this, add a little soy sauce for flavor & brown color. When everything is done, use the liquid & add a little cornstarch to thicken it. It will taste so much better.

    If you like the packaged stuff then you can ignore this post.

  4. I’m having no luck when trying to print the recipe. It prints the title but the rest of the page is blank. Any ideas or what I’m doing wrong??

    • Audrey, there’s a print button just above the recipe. It’s right above the “save recipe” button. That should work to print the recipe. Sorry for the trouble you’re having.

  5. Any idea about how much would be in the brown gravy packet? It is so expensive to buy this way – I buy it loose from the bulk food store but not sure how much to use. I love this recipe because I have a 2-part slow cooker and can brown the meat and onions in the pot on the stovetop and then place on the heating tray. Don’t have to dirty a second skillet. Yeah!!! One less to wash.


  7. this recipe can also use white pepper gravy mix (my favorite, w/out onions, allergy) very tasty

    You can use the Liptons Onion soup mix instead of the brown gravy mix. Thats what I use when making cube steak and gravy on top of the stove. Is yummy!

    Do you just throw out the remainder of the flour mixture after you’ve dredged the cube steak in it or is it added to the gravy?

    Do the steaks have to be completely done before adding them to the crockpot? Thanks!

  11. The Cube Steaks with Gravy recipe, I was wondering if it would work using a can of Campbell’s beef gravy instead of a packaged gravy.
