Crock Pot Cubed Steak & Mashed Potatoes Recipe:

What’s so great about this crock pot cubed steak recipe? It not only makes its own gravy, but it also has a layer of mashed potatoes cooked in the same slow cooker. In my mind, cubed steak and mashed potatoes just go together. I can’t eat one without the other.

Let me break it down.

Mashed potatoes, topped with tender cube steak, topped with a mushroom gravy.  Everything that’s good in life in one pan, and this crock pot cube steak takes only 4 hours.

I love cubed steak. Typically, I fry it up country-style in a pan, and then serve it over mashed potatoes. But this recipe has it all together, and it stays in two separate layers during cooking.

Cubed Steak Gravy and Mashed Potatoes

This cubed steak gravy is easy; it’s made with a can of cream of mushroom soup, a can of condensed French Onion Soup, a can of mushrooms (optional), and a little flour.

What’s the secret to keeping everything in separate layers? I mixed a beaten egg in with the refrigerated, prepared mashed potatoes (I prefer Bob Evan’s brand). The egg binds the potatoes together and keeps them at the bottom of the crock pot.

I also use a little flour in with the gravy ingredients to thicken it up and keep it at top.

Notes About Crock Pot Cubed Steak & Mashed Potatoes:

  • My family loves mashed potatoes, so I use 2 containers from the refrigerated section. This slow cooker cubed steak recipe works just fine with 1 container.  Blend with only one egg if you use one container.
  • The beaten egg combined with the mashed potatoes helps bind and thicken the potatoes. This keeps the mashed potatoes and gravy from combining into one big, sloppy mess. This is a trick from my sister’s Ground Beef Shepherds Pie.
  • Mushrooms are optional.  Be sure to drain the can first.
  • I suggest letting this easy crock pot cubed steak sit turned off for 30 minutes before serving. This allows the gravy to thicken slightly before serving.
  • The potatoes are hot, hot, hot after serving from the slow cooker. Be careful to not burn your tongue!

  1. Great recipe – but I used my own left over mashed potatoes instead of ones you suggested. That way I know what is in them. Also grated an onion – onion soup had way too much salt and used Mrs. Dash Seasoning and sauted fresh mushrooms. Came out perfect. Thanks so much for posting. Oh – since there is only me, I cut this recipe down to 2 servings. Thanks again.
