I had never purchased “cube steak” before in my life until this week. In fact I never even had the desire to – with my weird aversion to meat nothing even sounded remotely appetizing about “cube steak.” Plus everything I had heard compared the cut of meat to a shoe sole, so I just overlooked it at the store.
Wow was I wrong.
Crockpot Cube Steak (aka My Family’s New Favorite Meal)
- 1 package of cube steak
- 2 cans Cream of Mushroom Soup
- 1 package Lipton Onion Soup Mix
- 1/2 cup milk
The directions could not be more simple – throw everything into the Crockpot and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours – depending on how much steak you used. We put ours over white rice and it was absolutely some of the best stuff any of us have ever tasted. It was a bit salty – so next time I will probably get “Low Sodium” cream of mushroom, but honestly, I have been wanting more ever since we scraped the last drop out of the Crockpot.
The great thing too is that cube steak is cheap – so even the large family size package I got on sale for less than $8. I think the entire meal ran us about $20 to feed our family of four. This is an easy meal you can start in the morning, go to work, and will be ready when you walk in the door. In fact I recommend that – because sitting here at home while it was cooking all day was excruciating – it smelled so good!
Now, it may not LOOK like the prettiest thing you have pulled out of a Crockpot - but it certainly does top the list taste wise. Mike and the girls gobbled up every bite, asking for more. I had hoped to have leftovers for lunch the next day, but I wasnt so lucky. I will be cooking a double batch next time.
