The flavors are spot on but boy does it cook a lot quicker than 8 hours on low! I even put it on extra low (10 hour setting on my crockpot) and it was still overly cooked and liquid evaporated almost over halfway. I wish I was home to watch it but was at work or I would have cut it off a lot earlier than 8 hours. It is super easy to make and the taste is good but a bit overly salty (due to the mixes maybe?) but the time really needs some adjustment or a large range of cook time. I might try this again with no salt beef broth next time and reduce the cook time to about 4-5 hours. Worth a 2nd try for sure. Made during Help A Naked Recipe in the Photo Forum.
This was nice and tender and tasted pretty good, but not pretty, and the gravy was kinda funky looking, so it lost a star for not being attractive. Lost another star for not making hubby say yum, although he ate plenty. Perfectly edible, just not impressive. I didn't brown my meat before putting it in the crock. Was I supposed to?
This is a great recipe for when you have cube steak you don't know what to do with! I get shares of grass fed beef from a farmer and the package always includes cube steak so I was glad to try this recipe. The meat was very tender and I served this with some greens and mashed potatoes (didnt add the potatoes into the crock pot), which were great with the gravy! I think Ill try this next time with a homemade mushroom gravy sauce, just because the ingredients in the packaged gravy mix can be kinda scary (sensitive to msg). I know the main point of this was to make it easy and this is a great easy throw together meal! Thanks.
Wonderful recipe! I did change the beef gravy by using recipe#204187 which worked out GREAT and since I didn't have any envelop brand beef gravy mixes on hand. I also omitted the 3 cups of water since the gravy I was using had beef broth in it. The cube steak was so nice and tender, it melts in your mouth. I used onion and fresh mushrooms too. THanks so much for sharing the recipe :)
