Here’s another great slow cooker recipe from Eat At Home Cooks who is one of my all time favorite bloggers.  Tiffany is not only a great cook and writer, but also a fellow Kentuckian!

I used her recipe as my inspiration and almost all of the flavors are the same, but I made my own gravy and didn’t use the mix included in her recipe.  Most of the mix packets have MSG and I am extremely allergic so I just made a basic gravy with flour and broth.

These steaks make a great supper with your favorite comfort food side dishes like mashed potatoes and macaroni and cheese.  I wish my photos were better, but meat is my photography nemesis!

Slow Cooker Cube  Steaks 1

1/2 cup + 3 tbsp. all purpose flour, divided

2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. dry mustard powder

Approximately 2 lbs. cube steak

2 tbsp. vegetable oil

1/2 cup diced onion

1 cup beef broth


Combine 1/2 cup flour, salt, garlic powder and ground mustard in a pie pan.  Dredge the cube steaks in the flour mixture.


Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Brown the steaks in the oil for about 2 minutes on each side.  Place the browned steaks in your slow cooker.


Add the remaining 3 tbsp. flour to the hot skillet and stir this into the oil leftover from the steaks for about 30 seconds.  Pour in the beef broth and continue stirring constantly.  Make sure to scrape the bottom of the skillet well to get all of the tasty bits in to the gravy.  Add the diced onions and cook on low for about 5 minutes.


Pour the gravy over the steaks and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours.

I have a confession to make…I am a Southern cook who has never been able to fry meat.  The shame! My husband says that he can tell when I fry something, because the smoke detectors go off.  Sad, but true. It seems I never get the temperature quite right.  Either the oil is too hot and the outside of the meat is black and the center is raw or the oil is too cool so the meat is done in the center, but greasy on the outside.  Enter Pioneer Woman and her recipe for Fried Round Steak!  She has saved me from my frying dilemma.

These are great with potatoes and gravy, but also make great sandwiches with just plain white bread.  Mmm, mmm!  I get hungry just thinking about it.


3 lb.s cube steak

1 cup all purpose flour

1 tsp. seasoned salt

3 tsp. ground black pepper

salt to taste

1/2 cup canola oil

2 tbsp. butter


Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Mix together the flour, pepper and salt to form a dredge for the meat. Season both sides of the steaks with more salt and pepper before coating the steak in the flour mixture.



Add the butter to the warm oil right before frying the steaks.


Place the steaks in the hot oil/butter and fry on the first side until they are a deep golden brown.  Flip and cook on the other side for about 3 minutes for well-done.



Remove them to a paper towel lined plate and serve hot. Tasty!!
