Easy Cubed Steak with Gravy takes only minutes to prep and 40 minutes in the oven. Perfect for busy weeknights. You can put it in a slow cooker in the morning, however, it’ll be more like a chunky, meaty gravy when you get home from work! Still incredibly delicious piled on yummy bread and a mound of mashed potatoes – like a pseudo beef Manhattan!
If time is short, whip up your favorite instant mashed potatoes. There are some pretty good prepared mashed potatoes in the refrigerated section of most stores these days, too. If you have a ton of time, homemade is best! Add heavy whipping cream and lots of real butter, salt, and pepper! A side of red wine sautéed mushrooms is in the picture above beside homemade mashed potatoes.
Easy Cubed Steak with Gravy
Note: If utilizing a slow cooker, set to low heat for 6 hours or high heat for 4 hours.
- 4-8 cubed steaks
- 1 packet dried onion soup mix
- 1-2 cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
- 1 full soup can of water (2 if using a slow cooker)
Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray casserole dish or roasting pan with oil.
Place cubed steaks in a single layer in the bottom of the dish. Shake the onion soup packet to mix well then sprinkle half on the first layer of cubed steaks.
Mix the soup and water in a bowl then pour half over first layer of cubed steaks.
Add next next layer of cubed steaks, sprinkle rest of onion soup mix on, then top with rest of soup. Pepper if desired.
Cover and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the meat is cooked through and a nice gravy has formed.
Serve with mashed potatoes.
Happy eating! 😊
