This crockpot cube steak recipe offers an easy recipe and a flavorful meal that transforms less expensive meat into a tender cut of beef.  Crockpot cube steak is the best comfort food that is simple to make and is done for you at the end of a busy day. 


Units Scale
  • Spray Oil for easy clean-up
  • 6 to 8 Cube Stakes (sometimes called Minute Stake)
  • Ground Pepper
  • 1 Onion sliced
  • 2 to 3 cups of fresh Mushrooms sliced
  • 1 package of Onion Soup Mix
  • 1 package of Mushroom Gravy Mix
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • 2 cans of Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • Optional 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and 1/4 cup of cold water to thicken the gravy.


  1. Spray the inner pot of your CrockPot for easy cleanup.
  2. At the bottom of the CrockPot layer half of the sliced onion and half of the sliced mushrooms.
  3. Layer the cube stakes and pepper about 1 teaspoon of freshly ground pepper, on top of the onions and mushrooms.
  4. Next, add the rest of the onions and mushrooms.
  5. In a small measuring cup heat the 3/4 cup of water and mix in the soup mix and the mushroom soup mix.
  6. In a medium bowl whisk together the cream of mushroom soup with the water mixture until smooth.
  7. Pour the soup mixture over the cube of steak, onions, and mushrooms.
  8. Cook on low for 6 hours or low for 4-5 hours on high.
  9. After the cooking is done, if you want the gravy to be thicker, mix the 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with 1/4 -1/2 cup of cold water, have the crockpot on high, and add the cornstarch in, and stir until thick.


  1. For this recipe, I used salt-free cream of mushroom soup as there is sodium in the soup and gravy mix.
  2. If you can not find a cube stake in the meat section ask the butcher as my store makes the cube stake for me in about 5 minutes.
  3. My Crockpot does not have an option to auto-change the settings. I cooked the recipe for 1.5 hours on high to get the temperature and then reduced it to low and cooked for 4 hours. It came out perfectly incredibly tender cube steak recipe just like my mother used to make in the 1960s.
