"This was perfect and easy as well! Made exactly as recipe specified, but added the following: 1. Two tablespoons of cornstarch to the flour before tossing the steaks in the plastic bag (tenderizing trick), and 2. At the end, when I added the whisked gravy mix, i added two cans of stewed tomatoes for the remaining half hour.

I made this for a Holiday meal...everyone loved it, and everyone wanted the recipe.
This is a keeper! Thanks for sharing!"

"This is the only way I am making cube steak from now on. They were so tender. And the gravy was so delicious. Next time I will be sure to brown them a little longer. Even after 8 hours in the slow cooker they were still a little under done. But that was my bad. They reheat great also. Definitely making again."

"This recipe is amazing! I actually use this recipe to cook up all the venison steaks and back-straps my husband brings home from his hunting adventures. Even those who do not care for the taste of venison LOVE this recipe. Instead of using all the gravy mixes, I use cream of mushroom soup and add onion soup mix. A winner every time."

"Because I don't use bottled gravy, I saved the browning pan to make the gravy later. Instead of adding water to the crock-pot, I used beef broth instead. After the meat was tender, I removed it from the cooking juices. In the frying pan, I added flour to the pan with a little more oil (if needed) to make a roux. Then, I added the juices along with the onions and made a thickened gravy. Salt and pepper to taste. Return the meat to the gravy. YUMMY!"

"GREAT! I tried your recipe and the cube steaks were delicious! So simple to prepare, and leftovers re-heated in the microwave were really good too. This one is a keeper! Thank you."

"Wow!! Great way to make this meat tender. I could not find mushroom gravy or onion gravy. I used three packets of brown gravy, but bought fresh mushrooms, and cooked them on the stove, then added them when I added the gravy mix. One thing--I did season meat and the flour mixture with garlic powder, salt, pepper, and some beef seasoning. I also diced up some red bell pepper and some celery that needed to be used up. We gobbled this up!!! Made a ton of extra gravy, so I froze the remaining gravy and will use for another meal."
