Cube Steak with Gravy

This is easy.

This is tasty.

This is my boy cherub's kind of meal!  Meat 'n gravy with mashed potatoes!  OK, broccoli too, but especially the meat!

Throw it in the crock pot in the morning and have a satisfying meal that evening!

Cubed Steaks with Gravy Recipe

Cube Steak with Gravy

1/3 cup all-purpose flour
6 beef cubed steaks (4 ounces each)
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 large onion, sliced and separated into rings
3 cups water, divided
1 envelope brown gravy mix
1 envelope mushroom gravy mix
1 envelope onion gravy mix
Hot mashed potatoes or cooked noodles

Place flour in a large resealable plastic bag. Add steaks, a few at a time, and shake until completely coated. In a skillet, cook steaks in oil until lightly browned on each side. Transfer to a 3-qt. slow cooker. Add the onion and 2 cups water. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or until meat is tender.

In a bowl, whisk together gravy mixes with remaining water. Add to slow cooker; cook 30 minutes longer. Serve over mashed potatoes or noodles.

**I cooked my steaks in a 9X13 pan with the 2 cups of water, tightly wrapped with foil on 250 for several hours; the last hour or so, I added the gravy/water mixture and it turned out perfect.  My cherubs get tired of "crock pot" meals so occasionally I treat them and cook it in the oven!

Also, the gravy mixture is ample, so if you throw in extra meat so that you can have leftovers, you're going to be fine.

 Yield: 6 servings.
