This crock pot steak and gravy is a simple dump and cook recipe for perfectly tender meat that develops its own flavorful onion and mushroom gravy in the crock pot. It takes only 5 minutes to prepare and has only 250 calories per serving!


Units Scale
  • 2 (10.75 oz) cans cream of mushroom soup (I used 98% fat free)
  • 1 packet of dry onion soup mix
  • 2 pounds of stew meat
  • 3/4 C of water


  1. Add your 2 lbs of stew meat to your crockpot. 
  2. Top with two cans of cream of mushroom soup. 
  3. Dump in 1 packet of dry onion soup mix. Top with 3/4 C of water.
  4. Stir to combine then cook on low for 8 hours. 


  • Shopping: Dry onion soup mix can be typically be found in a box in the soup aisle. (I prefer Lipton's brand which is in a blue box). Stew meat can be found at your local butcher or in most grocery stores. 
  • Substitutions: If you are unable to find stew meat, you can substitute it for another cut of beef such as chuck or round. If you are not a fan of mushroom soup you can sub the two cans in this recipe for one can of French onion soup and one can of cream of chicken instead. 
  • PrepNone! (The joys of dump and cook crock pot recipes!) 
  • Cooking: You will cook the steak and gravy in the crock pot for 8 hours on low (or 4 hours on high, but I prefer a lower, slower cook). 
  • Storage: Leftovers can be refrigerated for up to 5 days. 
  • Freezing: To freeze your leftovers, allow to cool completely first, then store servings in individual containers for up to 2 months. You can also freeze any leftover gravy in an ice cube tray. 
  • ReheatingIf fresh: Fresh leftovers can be reheated on the stovetop in a small pot over low heatIf frozen: Frozen leftovers should be placed in the refrigerator to thaw overnight and then reheated using the directions above.
