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.

Eat At Home Cooks is one of my favorite all time food blogs.  It doesn’t hurt that she hails from my home state of Kentucky and her recipes are tasty and use normal ingredients that most of us will have on hand. 

Her Apple BBQ pork chop recipe is all that and more.  These beauties can be grilled, baked or made in the slow cooker like I did.  You can change out the type of sauce you use to suit your taste as well.  These made a great Sunday dinner.

Apple BBQ Pork Chops 2

6 bone in pork chops

2 tbsp. vegetable oil

salt & pepper to taste

1 cup BBQ sauce (I used honey BBQ.)

1/2 cup apple jelly

2 or 3 drops of liquid smoke (Optional, but it does add great flavor.)

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and pour in about 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.  Season the chops with salt and pepper and brown them on each side in the heated skillet.

Put the apple jelly in a small bowl and warm in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Stir the BBQ and liquid smoke into the warmed jelly to complete the sauce.

Layer the chops with the sauce in a slow cooker.  Cook on low for 5 to 6 hours.  That’s all there is to it.
