  • 2 ½ lb cubed sirloin steak (6-8 medium-size pieces)
  • cup all-purpose flour (Season with ¼ teaspoon each salt, pepper and paprika)
  • olive oil
  • 1 medium green pepper seeded and sliced
  • 1 medium sweet onion sliced
  • 1 8 oz container sliced baby portabella mushrooms
  • 1 10 ¾ oz can cream of mushroom & roasted garlic soup
  • 1 ½ cup low sodium beef broth
  • 1 0.6 oz packet Knorr Au Jus gravy mix
  • 2 tablespoon A-1 steak sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 teaspoon steak seasoning blend i.e. Chicago, Montreal, Meat Magic
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • salt & black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon flour, plus additional as needed to thicken sauce


  • Spray the crock of a 6 quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
  • Dust the cube steaks with flour seasoned with salt, pepper and paprika.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown both sides of the steaks in olive oil for 1 minute per side then arrange in the bottom of the slow cooker. Do not cook through.
  • To the pan, add soup, beef broth, au jus packet, steak sauce, parsley, steak seasoning and thyme. Whisk off the heat scraping all of the brown bits off the bottom of the pan. Whisk in 1 tablespoon of flour. Taste and adjust the pepper, if needed.
  • Arrange vegetables on top of steak, then drizzle gravy on top.
  • Cook on low for 6 -7 hours or until fork tender.
  • Serve hot over rice, egg noodles or mashed potatoes.


  • The au jus gravy mix will likely have ample salt for this entire dish. Taste before adding any additional salt to your steak.
  • You can use classic cream of mushroom soup or cream of mushroom soup with garlic for this recipe. Should you choose classic cream of mushroom soup, add 1 teaspoon of garlic powder or granulated garlic for more flavor.
  • Adjust the steak pieces according to how many servings needed.
