Steak & Gravy Recipe or One More Reason I Love My Slow Cooker

12 August 2012
I could make a list of reasons I love my slow cooker and it would be lengthy. One of my favorite things is you can buy a cheap cut of meat and after a few hours in the slow cooker it's as tender as the expensive stuff. I'm all for good food and saving money! I'm also a fan of easy prep.

This recipe is no frills, basic comfort food. It's also a snap to put together.

Not a great pic because my camera broke and I have to rely on the phone, but you get the idea.

  • 1lb round steak
  • 2 - 3/4 ounce packages beef gravy mix packets - I used mushroom
  • 3 cups water
  • one small onion, finely chopped
  • Spray the crock of your slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray or use one of those nifty slow cooker liners. 
  • Place meat in crock.
  • In a small saucepan bring water to a boil then add gravy mix. Mix until smooth then pour over steaks in slow cooker.
  • Top with chopped onions. 
  • Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
See how easy that is? It makes a hearty meal with seamed veggies and mashed potatoes. We really enjoyed this for dinner tonight!

Does your family have favorite no fuss meal?
