Easy crockpot meals are essential at this stage of life for me. I love finding new recipes for simple meals with just a few ingredients.

This 5-Ingredient Crockpot Cube Steak recipe is the perfect example! Similar to my Crockpot Pork Chops and my Easy Beef Stroganoff, it uses a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup as a recipe starter.

This recipe also relies on a packet of brown gravy mix, plus onion flakes and worcestershire sauce. Those four ingredients combine to create a rich, flavorful gravy.

The gravy coats the pieces of tender cube steak, which you can cut with a fork.

Ingredients

cube steaks, cream of mushroom soup, brown gravy mix, and other ingredients on a white table.
  • Cube steaks are relatively inexpensive—I found these for $5.99/lb at my local grocery store.
  • A can of condensed cream of mushroom soup + a packet of brown gravy mix create the rich sauce for the steaks.
  • Onion powder and worcestershire sauce amp up the flavor even more. You’ll likely only need a pinch of salt for this recipe, or just leave it out entirely as there is salt in the gravy mix, soup, and worcestershire sauce.

How to make crockpot cube steaks with gravy

Start by whisking together the cream of mushroom soup, brown gravy mix, worcestershire sauce, and onion powder in a slow cooker.

Add the cube steaks, and use tongs to turn the steaks to coat them with the gravy.

Cover and cook on high for 3–4 hours or on low for 6–7 hours.

Cooking the cube steaks in the gravy will make them tender as they slow cook in the crockpot.

Make Ahead Instructions

Crockpot Cube Steaks are a great make-ahead meal. Let the cube steaks and gravy cool slightly, then transfer to a covered dish. Keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days until you’re ready to serve them.

You can reheat the meat and gravy in the crockpot on warm, in the microwave, or in a skillet on the stovetop.

Variations

  • Substitute cream of chicken or cream of celery soup for the cream of mushroom soup.
  • Substitute 1 cup of beef broth in place of the brown gravy mix + water. The sauce will be a little thinner.
  • Use soy sauce instead of worcestershire sauce.
  • Add a packet of Lipton onion soup mix for even more savory onion flavor.
  • Use a sliced yellow onion in place of the onion powder.
  • Add sliced mushrooms (add them with the cube steaks).

Freezing instructions

You can freeze cube steaks with gravy for up to 3 months. Place in a freezer bag or in a freezer-safe dish. Defrost for 24 hours in the refrigerator before reheating in the microwave, on the stovetop, or in the slow cooker.
