Slow Cooker Cube Steak (With Buttered Mushrooms and Onions)
Turn average cube steak into a tender and extremely flavorful meal with this no-hassle slow cooker cube steak recipe.
When I was younger, I always thought it was so funny how my then boyfriend’s mother would religiously make cube steak in the slow cooker. Like clockwork, each week he would enjoy his cube steak which was slow cooked for a whopping 8 hours. His mother would serve it over fresh garlic mashed potatoes. He always would invite me to try it, but it honestly never seemed appealing to me.
I wondered, “What the heck is cube steak?”
I imagined it to be little cubes of meat in some sort of gravy. Truth be told, at the age of 15, I had no idea what a slow cooker was either? My mom never, ever used one, but I do remember my then boyfriend (now husband’s) mom had a little vintage orange model with flowers and mushrooms on it. It looked as if she stole the prop right out of the Brady Brunch house. I will never forget that thing. It was like a magical little pot that could make even the roughest cut of meat tender.
A little over 15 years later, and I now not only know what a slow cooker is, I own one! I love my slow cooker so much and use it at least weekly. It is an original “instant pot” if you will and can do so much! It even can turn rough, lackluster cube steak into only the most flavorful and tasty meal–ever!!
Slow Cooker Cube Steak (With Buttered Mushrooms and Onions) is such a yummy recipe that I winged one day. I was at the market and was so upset that the roast beef cut I wanted was $26. Instead, I settled for $6 cube steak and hoped for the best. Then, I remembered how much my husband ate this meal as a kid.
