SLOW COOKER CUBE STEAKS WITH GRAVY
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1/3 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. black pepper
6 (about 4 oz. each) beef cube steaks (I usually buy the family pack of cube
and cut them in half if the slices are really big-I don’t pay attention
to the weight
of the package, there’s always plenty of gravy)
1 Tbsp. canola oil
3 c. water, divided
1 envelope brown gravy mix (I use the reduced sodium brown gravy mix)
1 envelope mushroom gravy mix
1 envelope onion gravy mix
Hot mashed potatoes, cooked rice or cooked noodles
Spray the inside of a 3-5 quart slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
Place the sliced onions in the slow cooker.
Combine flour, garlic powder, onion powder and pepper in a large resealable
plastic bag. Add steaks, a few at a time; shake until completely coated.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the steaks, a few at a
time, and cook until lightly browned on each side. Place the browned steaks
on top of the onions in the slow cooker.

Pour 2 c. water over all. Cover; cook on Low for 8 hours or until meat is
