Aunt Lou here.

So we all know that in this house we are suckers for a great deal on meat. Well, our freezer is still completely packed, so when Michael found a good deal on a flat iron steak, I needed to use it right up.

I saw this Slow Cooker Steak with Gravy recipe and was a little leery. You see, to say I am a picky eater would be quite the understatement. However, I married a human garbage disposal who loves anything and everything except peas (Go figure?). So I thought I would give it a try since it sounded like something Michael would love.

I am so very glad that I did! Roast is my all time favorite, but finding a good roast on sale is next to impossible. With this recipe, our flat iron steak tasted like a juicy, delicious roast! Mommy score!

Slow Cooker Steak with Gravy

Recipes don’t get much easier than this…

Cut your steak into serving size pieces.

Place the steak in the bottom of your slow cooker. (I used my Hamilton Beach Programmable Insulated Slow Cooker. I love mine…if you are in need of a slow cooker, I recommend checking it out!)

Add your soup mix, water and soup to your slow cooker and mix it together.

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

When your steak is ready to serve, spoon some gravy over top and dig in!

We were completely floored by the texture and flavor of this crazy simple recipe. It was so tender it just fell apart and the gravy was awesome!

    I want to make the recipe Slow Cooker Steak with Gravy. I just need to know if it calls for 10 cans of mushroom soup or a 103/4 can of mushroom soup

    • Aunt Lou

      It is a ten and three quarter ounce (10 3/4) can of mushroom soup. Enjoy!

  • Sharon

    This has been my go to recipe for roast and round steak for years. My family loves it. Sometimes, I mix it up a little and make swiss steak by putting a couple cans of tomatoes and a package of onion soup mix. You can add a package of gravy mix to that to thicken it or make a corn starch slurry.

    • Aunt Lou

      Yum! I’ll have to try that sometime!

  • Pat

    I make this but I use Golden Mushroom Soup – way better & the flavor is really intense – it’s a must try – you will never go back!

    • Aunt Lou

      Thanks for the tip!

    • MamaKraft

      What is Golden Mushroom Soup Mix? I have never heard of it??

  • MamaKraft

    I am making this right now. I didn’t have plain onion soup mix, so I substituted Beefy Onion Soup Mix – pretty sure it will be good. I added a little extra liquid as it seemed pretty dry .. I hope that doesn’t turn out to be a mistake. Also added an extra sweet onion since my family loves them, would have thrown in mushrooms too (also because we love them) but I used them last night for stroganoff. Thanks for the recipe!! I can’t wait to see how it turns out. I’ve never used a flank steak before.

    • Aunt Lou

      I hope it turns out great!

  • Suzanne L

    The Golden Mushroom Soup isn’t a mix, it’s actually a canned version of regular cream of mushroom soup.

  • Melony

    I got a slow cooker for christmas and have been looking for a delicious steak recipe as my first meal. I’m going to make this tomorrow :D

    • Aunt Lou

      Awesome! I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! :)

  • stacy

    is there a substitute for the mushroom soup mix?

    • Aunt Lou

      You could try replacing the Cream of Mushroom soup with any cream based soup. To be honest, I don’t like mushrooms or anything to do with them, but I loved this recipe.

  • ntgerh64

    What can I substitute for the dry onion soup mix? Onions and I don’t get along very well. :)

    • Aunt Lou

      You could try a brown gravy mix. Enjoy!

  • Tami

    Use a can of cola (any kind, I use Diet Pepsi) instead of water. The gravy it makes is delicious!

    • Aunt Lou

      Thanks for the tip!

  • Kristin

    This looked both yummy & easy! But can I cook it on high if I don’t have 6-8 hours to cook it on low? If cooking on high will work, then do you have recommendations?

    Thank you!!

    • Aunt Lou

      I would try cutting the time in half when cooking on high. I would check it at 3 hours and see how the meat is coming to see how much longer it will need, if any. Enjoy!

    What is flat iron steak? I’m Canadian and have never heard of this cut.

    • Aunt Lou

      It is a cut that is delicious if you ever happen across one! It is long and narrow and usually 2-3 lbs.

      A round steak will also work well in this recipe. Enjoy!
