Crock Pot Cubed Steak with Gravy
I think my love for my slow cooker is pretty well known (well, at least to my family). It really is one of my most favorite kitchen appliances. It’s right up there with my stand mixer. It is the busy parent, busy worker, and beginner cook’s best friend. It can take a rather tough cut of meat, like what I am using in this Crock Pot Cubed Steak with Gravy recipe, and turns it into tenderness on a plate.
Give me the gravy
My favorite part of this recipe? The gravy. Oh mercy, the gravy. Me and gravy, it’s a love thang.
So if you love your crock pot like I do, you gotta give this one a try. The cubed steak comes out so tender and the gravy is thick and rich and goes perfectly with some egg noodles or mashed potatoes!
