Cube Steak Recipes: Easy Crockpot Salisbury Steak Recipe
Easy Cube Steak Crock Pot Recipe
My family sometimes purchases a share of a grass-fed beef cow, which results in many cuts of meat in the freezer that I wouldn't normally purchase but that I must use up. One such cut of meat is a cube steak. Cube steaks are run through a special machine at the butcher's to tenderize them; they can be tough if cooked incorrectly. I've tried all sorts of recipes to use up the cube steaks from our beef purchases and this recipe I developed, which mimics the taste of Salisbury Steak, cooks up in the Crock Pot or slow cooker. It uses only 3 ingredients plus a little flour for the first step. Even the leftovers were tasty. You can set the Crock Pot to cook the main meal and make mashed potatoes and peas or green beans to go with this tasty, simple slow cooker cube steak meal. And since I am always looking for easy meals to make in the slow cooker like rotisserie chicken or other meals, this one is a keeper.
Serving Suggestions-Side Dishes
Balance the strong flavor of the "Salisbury Steak" cube steak recipe with simple, vegetable based side dishes. I make mashed potatoes from scratch; simple peel and cube white potatoes, one for each person at dinner. Add to a pot of water and boil for 45 minutes. Drain thoroughly, then put the potatoes back in the pot and add butter and milk. Mash with a hand masher adding about 4 tablespoons butter and milk to get the right consistency.
Good side dishes for this meal include green peas, green beans, carrots or whatever vegetable your family likes. If you're pressed for time, serve with egg noodles instead of mashed potatoes. Bon appetit!
