Slow Cooker Steak ‘n’ Gravy

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Cook: 4-1/2 hours


4 servings

Slow cooking in a zesty tomato sauce for hours helps the round steak become nice and tender. This nicely spiced steak with gravy makes a satisfying meal served over rice or mashed potatoes.


  • 1 pound beef top round steak
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1 can (8 ounces) no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt-free seasoning blend
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 2 cups mashed potatoes


  1. Cut beef into 1-in cubes; brown in oil in a skillet. Transfer to a 3-qt. slow cooker. Cover with water; add tomato sauce and seasonings. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours, or on high for 4 hours, or until meat is tender.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour and cold water; stir into liquid in slow cooker. Cover and cook on high 30 minutes longer or until gravy is thickened. Serve with potatoes.
