Description

These Southern Slow Steaks have been a family favorite recipe for over 50 years! They’re deliciously tender, low in fat and calories (using lean sirloin steaks) and they’re easily made in a slow cooker!

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Top Round Sirloin Steaks, Cut Into 3 To 4 Inch Pieces
  • 1 teaspoon Salt, Or To Taste
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper Or To Taste
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 3 cups Water, Divided
  • 1 whole Beef Bouillon Cube
  • ¼ cups Flour (unbleached Or All-purpose)
  • ½ teaspoons Garlic Powder (optional)
  • ½ teaspoons Onion Powder (optional)

Preparation

Sprinkle the steak pieces with the salt and pepper.

Place the olive oil in a large pan over high heat. When the oil is hot add half of the steak pieces. Brown thoroughly on each side, remove from pan and put them in the slow cooker. Repeat with the other steaks.

Pour 2 cups of the water into the hot pan along with the bouillon cube or beef broth paste. Reduce heat to medium high and allow it to heat.

Pour the remaining 1 cup of water, the flour, garlic powder and onion powder into a container with a lid, put the lid on and shake until the flour is dissolved.

Slowly add the flour and water mixture into the hot pan. Stir constantly until the broth thickens. Pour gravy over the steaks in the slow cooker.

Cover with the lid and cook for 4 hours on high or 6–8 hours on low. Steaks are done when fork tender.

Serve these amazingly tender steaks with mashed potatoes, over egg noodles or brown rice for a delicious Southern Slow Steak dinner.

This looks delicious! But I was wondering if I could follow the same recipe using London Broil steaks instead of top round steaks. Would I have to change anything about the preparation if I use London Broil steaks?

Sorry to ask this but is there any way you know how many calories this is? I want to try it. Thank you.

I made an account just so I can leave a review! I found this recipe a couple years ago and it’s been a family favorite ever since! My husband always asks me to make it. It’s easy and makes the house smell amazing all day. We often serve it with mashed potatoes and veggies. So good! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

I made this recipe last night. My 93 year old mother immediately stated “this is a keeper”! The meat was so tender and flavorful. I cooked it on low for 8 hours and served over egg noodles. I followed the recipe exactly, including the garlic and onion powder. It smelled wonderful in the house the entire day making our mouths water. I am not sure if I didn’t thickened the gravy enough when I initially made the gravy or if I just like my gravy thicker, but I did add cornstarch with water to the crock pot. I am always looking for crock pot recipes. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.
