Country Style Steak – In The Crockpot

In the South, we love Country Style Steak.  This is usually cube steak that is fried crispy and then we make a brown gravy from the drippings.  A few years ago, someone told me I could make this dish in the crockpot.  I tried it and have discovered that it is a quick way to make a favorite dish. We had the Country Style Steak prepared in the crockpot for Sunday lunch yesterday and I will share the recipe with you.

By the way, even though we are known to fry everything in the South, I only make the country style steak by frying it once a year.  It is a special occasion meal that we usually eat at the end of summer with fried okra.  I gave away my electric frying pan over five years ago and haven’t really missed it.  We have a griddle that we use from time to time to prepare breakfast but that is a rare occasion.

Crockpot Country Style Steak

1 to 1 and 1/2 pounds of cube steak

1 and 1/2 pounds of white potatoes

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 envelope of dry onion soup mix

Cut the cube steak into serving size pieces.  Dredge them in flour.  Brown them quickly on both sides in a saucepan that has been sprayed with cooking spray on top of the stove.  I use about a teaspoon of olive oil in the pan to keep the streak from sticking.

Wash the potatoes and cut them into thin slices.  I do not peel my potatoes

Place one layer of cube steak in the bottom of your crockpot that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Add  a layer of potatoes, a layer of mushroom soup and then 1/2 envelope of the dry onion soup mix.  Repeat the layers of steak, potatoes, mushroom soup and dry onion soup mix.j

In the past, when I prepared this recipe, my gravy would be a little too thick.  After putting all of the ingredients in the crockpot yesterday , I added 1/2 soup can of water to the mixture.  This made my gravy a little thinner and it also was darker in color.

Let this cook on low heat for about 8 hours or on high heat for abour 4 hours.

I served lima beans and fresh baked bread with my steak, as you can see from the picture.  It was a delicious Southern meal without lots of effort.  By the way, I really enjoy using frozen vegetables, especially beans and peas.

I look forward to sharing some Spring pictures with you later in the week and hope everyone is off to a great start today.
