How to Make Cube Steak Gravy

The first order of business when following this recipe is preparing the yummy homemade crockpot cube steak gravy. In a bowl, place your cream cheese, heavy cream, beef broth, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. The addition of cream cheese and heavy cream should come as no surprise if you’ve been checking out some of our other keto recipes, as they’re both a great way to add a lot of flavor, healthy fats, and satiety to your meals when used in tandem.

I like adding garlic powder into this gravy mixture as well because it gives it a flavor that can only be summarized with one word — addictive! It also helps to make this down home style meal quite healthy, as the garlic helps to give your immune system a boost while also lowering inflammation within the body. (1)

Set this bowl aside and then season your cube steaks with a little bit of salt and pepper. Next, add some olive oil to a large skillet and heat it up over a high heat. If you’ve been using vegetable oil for all of your cooking needs, then you should seriously consider dropping it and switching over to using olive oil.

Vegetable oil is high in omega-6 fatty acids, which are known to cause inflammation. Olive oil, on the other hand, is an excellent source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids that help to reduce your risk of cardiovascular diseases. (2)

After searing your cube steaks in the skillet, you can add them into the crockpot along with the mushrooms and onions. Along with the garlic and cream-infused gravy, the mushrooms and onions are the other main source of intense flavor that this recipe provides.

They’re both also terrific low carb veggie options that each provide their own numerous health benefits. After you’ve added everything into the crockpot, you can pour the cream cheese mixture over top of it and mix everything until it’s combined. All that’s left to do now is cover the crockpot with a lid and let it cook for about six hours on low.

I’ve been making this recipe a couple of times per week lately — I love it that much! It really is an extremely comforting down home style meal. The fact that it’s also 100% keto-friendly is definitely an added benefit as well. Oh, and as one other bonus, this recipe is also incredible when served as leftovers.

You can easily make a big batch all at once and have some healthy meals ready to go for a few days.

P.S. I love my proteins and for me, all proteins go with mashed potatoes. I had to find a keto alternative so the next best thing was cauliflower mashed potatoes with parmesan and chives. It’s so quick to make too–just steam your cauliflower, put it in your food processor until creamy and top it with grass-fed butter, fresh parmesan and chives. Hands down, I prefer this over my regular mashed potatoes now!

P.P.S. Beef and gravy is the perfect type of meal to make in a crockpot. If you want to make something just as comforting with even less prep, try our super tender slow cooker roast beef with gravy:

  1. I have just printed out your Keto Crockpot Cube Steak and Gravy recipe. Wondering if you have dairy free suggestions for the cream cheese and heavy cream? Perhaps coconut cream for the heavy cream? We have to be dairy free and wheat/gluten free. Your recipes sound delicious and easy to make, at least this one and the Easy Crockpot Keto Swedish Meatballs. Can’t wait to try them! They are the first 2 I have read and printed. Thank you so much for sharing them. Sincerely, Gail Forsberg

    • Thanks so much Gail!

      I think coconut cream would be a suitable replacement 🙂 It will definitely change the flavor profile with the coconut, but I still think it would be really tasty.

  2. So delicious! My husband is not keto and absolutely loved it. The gravy it makes is some of the best gravy I’ve ever had. This will surely be a big staple in our house. Didn’t miss the mashed potatoes at all, since we put it over cauliflower mash. Yum!

  3. This really is delicious. I’ve made it several times. I was out of heavy cream last night and used sour cream instead, just as delicious! Sauce is great over cauli mash. But really makes Zucchini noodles more palatable to me!

  4. The only thing i don’t like is having to use upp anouther pan to sear the steak first. The reason i use a crock pot is to make it simple and all in one pot. No extra work.

    • You can definitely leave out the sear if you want, or try to sear it in your crockpot (if it gets hot enough). I do like to sear the steak though as it helps hold in the juices and give it a depth of flavor you can’t get otherwise.
