FullSizeRender (5)As we gear up for a chillier season ahead, I’ve been on the search for inspiration for warm, delicious, filling meals for my family. While this isn’t going to be the prettiest meal you’ll ever make, it sure satisfies tummies! The bonus for us is that cube steaks came in our half cow freezer package and we wanted to use them up. And boy, am I sure glad that we did! We served the swiss steaks with baby red mashed potatoes and some fresh Indiana sweet corn. However you pair them, you’re sure to enjoy!





  • 4 medium cube steaks
  • 8 oz fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1/2 T dried thyme
  • 1 1/2 t paprika
  • 1 c chicken stock
  • 1/4 c flour
  • 4 T vegetable oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/2 c heavy cream


Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 T of oil. Add mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes to brown. Pour into slow cooker.

Return the pan to the heat. Season the steaks with salt & pepper on both sides. Add 1 T of oil and brown the steaks. Remove and place on a plate.

Return the pan to heat once again and add 2 T of oil. Add onions, thyme, and paprika. Stir and cook for a minute. Add flour, stir well, cook for a minute. Whisk in chicken stock. This will make a gravy consistency. Pour the pan into the slow cooker.

Place the steaks on top in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 5 hours. (Time varies depending on slow cooker.)

Remove steaks to their serving dish and cover with foil to keep warm. Stir the cream into the slow cooker and heat for another 10 minutes. Ladle gray over steaks and serve extra in a gravy boat. Enjoy!
