Slow Cooker Cubed Steak & Beans

2 cans green beans (or two cups fresh green beans)

Ingredients

1/2 of the liquid in the can of green beans
1 can cream of mushroom soup (I used cream of celery, you could use other cream soups as well)
1 Tbsp Kitchen Bouquet
4 cubed steaks
salt & pepper, to taste

If using a slow cooker liner, insert into slow cooker.  Put green beans in bottom of the slow cooker along with 1/2 of the liquid.  Put cubed steaks on top of the beans, try not to over lap the steaks.  Combine Kitchen Bouquet & soup until mixed well, place over top of cubed steaks.  Salt and pepper to taste. Cook on LOW for 7-9 hours.

This is a super easy meal to prepare and something different to do with cubed steaks.

A recipe that is very easy to 1/2 (for those of us that are cooking for two) or double if cooking for a bigger crowd.

All set and ready to cook!

Slow Cooker Beef Tips

It's helpful to have all the ingredients 'on the ready' as you prepare your dish

  • 1 lb beef stew meat
  • ½ c all purpose flour
  • Couple pinches salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp Kitchen bouquet
  • 1 – 14 oz can beef broth
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ – ½ c cream cheese
  • Wide egg noodles

Combine flour, salt and pepper in a Ziploc bag.  Add meat to flour mixture and toss until all pieces of meat are well coated.

Coating the stew meat in the flour mixture is made easy but putting all in a plastic bag to coat the meat. Clean up is super easy!

Line crock pot with crock pot liner* (see tips section) and add flour coated stew meat.  (Throw remaining flour mixture and Ziploc bag away).  Add the remaining ingredients except for the noodles and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours.  About 10 minutes before serving add cream cheese to crock pot and stir until dissolved.

Beef tips in the slow cooker cooking away!

Boil a pot of ‘salted’ water and add pasta when water is boiling.  Cook pasta until it is al dente (until it still has a little bite to it…not mushy).  Serve beef tips over pasta.

I like to use minced garlic from a jar found in grocery store near the produce normally. You can use fresh garlic if you like.

Dinners ready! Yum!

Menu Posting

Ever since I began making a dinner menu I have posted it on the refrigerator so that the entire family could see it and know what we would be having for dinner.

It was so convenient that friends and family would check it out and decide when they’d like to be in attendance too!

Unfortunately, after 17 years of menus my husband will still inevitably ask, “What’s for dinner?”

Update:  Since we have moved into our 5th wheel I am now posting the menu on the inside of one of the cabinet doors because the refrigerator has a wood surface…not compatible with a magnet.
