Crock Pot Country Style Steak

For as long as I can remember, my favorite meal that my mom cooks is country style steak. Whenever she asks what I want for a specific meal, it's always the same: country style steak with mashed potatoes, butter beans and crescent rolls. It's a great meal to pop in your slow cooker over the weekend or on a weekday morning and while I eat it year-round, it's always a great wintertime dinner. 

Ingredients:

  • Large pack of cubed steak, cut into pieces
  • 1 can of beef consomm√©
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • Lipton’s Onion Soup Packet
  • 3 cups of cold water water
  • 1/2 cup flour - if you want a thicker gravy, use 1 cup of flour.
  • Pepper to taste - I use lots of freshly ground!

Instructions:

  1. In a large pan, brown the beef on both sides until cooked through.
  2. Remove beef from pan and place in crock pot.
  3. In same pan, pour in can of beef consommé and onion soup packet.
  4. Mix 1 cup of the cold water with the half cup of flour. I usually put it into a closed bottle and shake to thoroughly mix. The cold water helps the flour dissolve (hot water will make it clump).
  5. Add the flour/water mixture and the remaining water into the pan. Pepper to taste. Stir until mixture has dissolved.
  6. Pour the gravy into the crockpot and mix everything together.
  7. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4. I’ve found that the longer it cooks on lower heat, the more tender the meat.
  8. Serve over mashed potatoes or rice.
