Slow cooking the steak all day makes the meat incredibly tender, and the cream of mushroom soup and Lipton onion soup mix make a perfectly seasoned gravy.
❓ What is cube steak
Cube steak is usually cut from top round or top sirloin, but it can be made from any cut of steak. To tenderize it, the meat is pounded with a meat mallet, making small cube-shaped indentations—hence the name "cube" steak.
If you cook with other red meats such as venison or elk, you can make your own cube steak by tenderizing any of the less tender cuts with a meat tenderizer.
The process of tenderizing meat and subsequently cooking it slowly in the crockpot yields fall-apart-tender steak that is delicious served with gravy over mashed potatoes.

🥗 Side dishes
Since Crockpot Cube Steak is already being served with a rich gravy and a comforting carb like mashed potatoes or rice, I would recommend a simple steamed or lightly sautéed vegetable or a salad as a side dish. Steamed broccoli, fresh peas, or sautéed sugar snap peas would be perfect with Crockpot Cube Steak.
