Quick and Easy Slow Cooker Cube Steak

Cube steak is notorious for being chewy… I never mined it and I do have a number of recipes for it… but a lot of people complain about it. Well complain no more… this recipe for Slow Cooker Cube Steak is not only quick to put together and easy.. the cube steak will be so tender it will melt in your mouth… honest!


Every slow cooker is different…. the heat settings are different. This recipe needs to cook on low … my one slow cooker cooks the pot at a low simmer when it’s set on low… my other slow cooker.. takes forever to get hot and will not simmer on low…. And believe it or not.. it’s the newer one that doesn’t simmer… anyway… you want a very low simmer… so set you cooker on the setting to get a very low simmer.

My gravy is slightly thickened, I don’t care for really thick gravy… if you prefer it thicker… add more flour to the beef broth before you add it into the cooker.

Set this up and 5 ½ hours later you have a delicious dinner! …. Add some smashed potatoes and a veggie… and you are good to go!

After all the cube steaks have been browned… add ½ cup of beef broth to the skillet to deglaze the pan. Using a spatula scrape all the bits up off the skillet and pour it over the meat in the slow cooker.
