Crock Pot Cubed Steak with Gravy is the ultimate no-fuss weeknight dinner recipe. Tender, flavorful and goes perfect with mashed potatoes!

A BUDGET-FRIENDLY, FAMILY-FRIENDLY DINNER

This meal is not only inexpensive but it is one of those “set-it and forget-it” type meals. You can toss everything into your slow cooker and dinner will be ready when you are!

COOKING TIPS FOR THIS CROCK POT RECIPE

  • This is one of those fix-it and forget it type crock pot recipes. It helps to have a digital crock pot these days. You can cook it for a certain amount of time so and then set it to automatically go to a keep-warm setting.
  • If you are sensitive to salt, I would suggest using lower sodium options where possible.
  • If you don’t want to use French Onion Soup you could substitute with low sodium Beef Consommé or Beef Broth.

WHAT DO YOU SERVE WITH CUBED STEAK?

I gotta served this cubed steak and gravy with my Million Dollar Mashed Potatoes and smother it in the gravy. Or, perhaps you want something a bit lighter? Then maybe my Italian Green Beans, Bacon Garlic Green Beans or Maple Glazed Carrots. My favorite part of this recipe? The gravy. Oh mercy, the gravy. Me and gravy, it’s a love thing. Be sure to try my Crock Pot Pork Chops and Gravy. It’s all about the gravy!

    Made this for dinner last night. It was delicious and so easy to make. Everyone really enjoyed the meal and I certainly will be making it again,

    I made this for the first time last night, for some reason the meat turned out to dry for me, everything else was perfect. Any suggestions.

    I cooked this tonight. It was very good but I am not crazy about French onion. Is there something g else I can use?

    1. Is it the onion flavor you don’t really love? You could use a can of beef consommé (you can find it with the other canned cream soups). If you still like that onion flavor (just not the soup) you can throw in a few slices of onion in there to still get a bit of that flavor. Or just plain ole beef broth 🙂

    I made this over the weekend and it was fabulous. Easy to do. I have left overs for tonight.
    Thank you for all your hard work that you do for all of us.
    Do you have a good recipe for slow cooker short ribs?

  6. I replaced water with beef stockand use 1 cup ( no water ) and also added 1/2 tin cream of mushroom soup along with the cream of chicken.
    Family loved it, will become a regular.

    I’m really excited I’m trying out this recipe for the first time. I couldn’t find the right amount of cubed steak at my store and I didn’t want to drive all over town, so I added fresh mushrooms to my cockpot, to help keep the saltiness balanced. I also substituted the cream of chicken with cream of mushroom. It already smells really good. I love that this recipe is different compared to the same roast recipes I normally see.

    I’ve cooked this twice now and my husband and I love it!!!! It tastes so good!!! I filled the soup can up with water after I had dumped the soup in so the mixture isn’t so salty. Going to try out the crock pot white queso dip tomorrow for game day.

    This I would give 10 stars if it allowed! Was amazing! Even my 3 year old granddaughter ate every bite. Definitely a keeper in our rotation! Thank you for sharing!

    I used cream of mushroom because I had no cream of chicken on hand and add a little beef broth hope that doesn’t mess the taste up

    1. This is the first time making this recipe I went by the recipe except for the cream of mushroom and little beef broth everything else was exactly what it called for can’t wait for it to get cooking yum yum

    Total comfort food. I had chicken mushroom soup and Lipton onion soup mix and just adjusted the water. Used an envelope of brown gravy mix and didn’t have to thicken the gravy
