Cube steak is steak that has been tenderized, but can still be tough.  I like to cook it low and slow to get the meat fall apart tender.

HOW TO MAKE CUBE STEAK

For both the stove top and the crockpot, I start this recipe by browning both sides of my cube steak in a hot skillet with some oil.  A nice brown crust on the outside is going to add a lot of flavor to the final dish and I think it is well worth the effort.

I cooked 6 steaks for this recipe, so I had to brown mine in two batches.  This only took 10 minutes in my hot skillet.  I then removed the steaks and set them aside while I made the gravy.

For the stove top version of this easy cube steak recipe, I made the gravy in my skillet which included onions sautéed in the remaining oil, then I added cream of mushroom soup and beef broth.

I whisked all of that together, then added the steaks back to the skillet and let them simmer for 2.5 hours.

HOW TO MAKE CROCKPOT CUBE STEAKS

To make this in the crockpot, you follow the same method as above, except after we sauté our onions, we add them to the crockpot, followed by the cream of mushroom soup and the beef broth.  Then submerge the steaks in the gravy and let it slow cook.

Ingredients

Instructions

For Stove Top

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Season the cubed steaks on both sides with salt and pepper.  Sear both sides of the cubes steak in the hot skillet.  About 3 minutes on each side.  I did 3 steaks at a time.  Remove the steaks from the skillet and set aside.
  • Reduce the skillet to medium heat and add in the onion.  Cook until translucent, about 5 minutes.  Add in the mushroom soup and the beef broth.  Stir to combine.  Add the steaks back to the pot and submerge in the gravy.  Reduce the heat to low and let simmer for 2.5 hours.  

For Crockpot

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Season the cubed steaks on both sides with salt and pepper. Sear both sides of the cubes steak in the hot skillet. About 3 minutes on each side. I did 3 steaks at a time. Remove the steaks from the skillet and set aside.
  • Reduce the skillet to medium heat and add in the onion. Cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add cooked onions to the crockpot with the mushroom soup and the beef broth. Stir to combine and add the steaks to the crockpot, submerging them in the gravy.  Cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 8 hours.

To Serve

  • Serve with cauliflower rice of mashed cauliflower.

Notes

Nutrition for 1, 4 ounces steak and 1/6th of gravy: 317 calories / 20g fat / 6g sat fat / 7g carbs / 25g protein
  • If you want a thicker gravy after it is finished cooking, you can whisk in 1/2 teaspoon on Xanthan gum to the gravy and let it simmer for a few minutes to thicken.
  • For the cream of mushroom, I used a store bought one that was gluten free. It added 5 carbs per serving to the recipe.  You can make your own following one of many recipes by searching google.

      I would do half the broth and if the sauce is too thick, add a little more

      My daughter’s allergic to mushrooms, so I use cream of celery soup in ANY recipe that says, “cream of musnhoom soup”.

    For the nutritional value is the carbs before the fiber was taken out or after because I’m on keto and I need to take that into consideration

      I’m going to try this tonight, but wanted to know if I’m only making for two, and I have three small cube steaks, how long should I simmer for? Thanks, Kathleen

        I would still do the same amount as the simmering helps break down the meat
