Cubed steak is sometimes labeled as “minute steak” or “fast fry steak” in supermarkets and is usually a budget-friendly meat option. All these types of steaks are tenderized and thin, but still tough. I’ve tested different cooking methods and slow cooking is one of my favorites!
Please note that cube steaks may shrink up to half their original size during cooking, so keep that in mind while shopping. This recipe calls for 8 raw cube steaks to serve 4 people as a main dish.
6 cube beef steaks
1 medium onion peeled and sliced into rings
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1 packet Lipton Onion Soup Mix
1/2 soup can of water
salt and pepper
Peel, slice and separate the rings of one medium sized onion.
Salt and pepper each cube steak.
Place 2 cube steaks in the bottom of your crock-pot.
Top with onions and repeat. Separating each addition of meat with onions. This will help separate them later and avoid them being one melded mass of cube steak.
In a separate bowl, add the cream of soups and water and mix it up. Pour the soup mixture over the meat..
Sprinkle the onion soup mix on top, put the lid on the crock-pot and turn it on low.
Soon your kitchen will start to smell delicious and 6-7 hours later you will have a dinner! Add a side of mashed potatoes to help enjoy the gravy an a salad or green veggie and you are ready to eat.
Note: If you like cream of mushroom soup, I’m sure you can use that as well. As for me, I’m not a fan, so I opted for a different combination.
