Recipe: Slow-cooked Steaks and Gravy

This is a dead-simple meal I arrived at after some experimenting with other recipes.  It doesn’t have to be very precise and you can substitute (other cuts of meat, beefy mushroom soup, skip the aus jus, etc.).  Throw it in the slow-cooker in the morning, go to work, and come back to dinner and a great smelling house.  If 3 lbs is too much, you can cut the recipe in half.

  • 3 lbs Sirloin Steaks cut to preferred size
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 cans Condensed Golden Mushroom soup
  • 2 packets Brown Gravy Mix (0.87 oz. size)
  • 1 packet Aus Jus Gravy Mix (1 oz. size)

Cut steaks to preferred size and place in slow-cooker.  Separately, mix the packets of brown gravy mix and 2 cups of water with a whisk until smooth and pour over steaks.  Mix the packet of aus jus mix with 1 cup of water with a whisk and pour over steaks.  Empty cans of soup into the slow-cooker.  Mix everything together well with a spoon.

Cover and place on low heat.  Cook for about 8 hours.  Serve as is, over rice, or with mashed potatoes.
