Delicious Crockpot Cubed Steak with Gravy Recipe made with real ingredients! A simple meal to throw together any night of the week.
In our house we try to avoid a lot of recipes with a can of "cream of something" soup. Not that I am opposed to them, but with my kids food allergies they just can't eat it. Sometimes this frustrates me when there is a really great recipe I would love to make for dinner, and other times I come up with a tasty option like I did for this Crockpot Cubed Steak with Gravy Recipe
I have seen different variations for this recipe that call for a can of this and a can of that, but why? When I looked at what was in it and what we are making, you can use real ingredients and make the same meal, even more delicious!
How to Make Crockpot Cubed Steak and Gravy
One of my favorite kinds of recipes. Just put everything in the crockpot and let it do its magic. Put the cubed steak in first and sprinkle it with seasonings. Add in the broth and you are ready to go.
Try this Homemade Onion Soup Mix Recipe instead of store bought! It makes a huge difference in the flavor!
Add Mushrooms and Onions
You could throw the sliced mushrooms into the crockpot too, but I sautéed mine in a separate pan due to picky eaters. You could totally sauté some extra sliced onions too! YUM!
Not only did this meal turn out fantastic, but it is crazy easy to make! It is going on our regular rotation this fall because there were absolutely no left-overs.
