Crockpot Steak and Gravy

I was introduced to this 3 ingredient Crockpot Steak and Gravy by a good friend of mine, Rashona, many years ago. It was a busy time in my life and she suggested this recipe to use for those crazy days when you just don’t have time to make dinner later in the day. I have made it countless times over the years and it always turns out rich, tender and absolutely delicious. My family gobbles it up; it’s one of their most requested dinners!

This slow cooker steak and gravy recipe could not be easier to make. Toss in three (THREE!) ingredients into the Crockpot first thing in the morning. It cooks all day and the welcoming scent wafts through the house, making it seem like you spent hours making an extravagant meal. It is such a comfort to walk in the door after a long, busy day and realize dinner is ready!

Suggestions for this Recipe

  • This steak and gravy recipe works very well with London broil or top sirloin steaks. I usually just shop around for whichever is on sale and buy extra to put in the freezer for the next time I want to use it in my meal rotation.
  • We love serving the thick, creamy steak and gravy over over rice I make in the rice cooker, which is also an easy thing to throw together. My family loves serving it alongside buttery mashed potatoes, but it would also be delicious over pasta, thick toast, or just by itself with a side of broccoli or green beans.
  • If you wanted to get fancy you could add sliced onions or mushrooms to the crockpot for added flavor.
  • Slicing your steak into thin strips will help speed up the cooking process and ensure super tender, fall apart meat every time.

How many stars would you give this recipe?


  1. Is there anyway you could give a recipe using items in my pantry besides prepackaged gravy and au jus powders? Those packets contain lots of additives like msg or sodium, etc. The concept of Slow cooker, gravey and steak sounds appealing.

  2. 5 stars
    I’m trying to find easy to make recipes that we can do once our child is born and this one was perfect! I served it with mashed potatoes and corn and my partner loved it! He said It reminded him of his childhood.
    Needless to say, we will be adding this to our meal rotation.

    Made this last night using those Petite Sirloin steaks (which I am NOT a fan of) that I bought because they were $1.97 a pound. I’ve made them before in various ways & marinades, stove top/grill or stir fry and always disappointed. BUT, then I ran across this way and it was DELICIOUS! I even had some of the gravy this morning over hashed browns. Seared the meat well & put in crock along with two carrots, one celery stalk and one onion, quartered. Nine hours later the meat was fork tender & bigger pieces would fall apart & the aroma was enticing. This is the only method for me from here on.

  4. Would you put onions in with the rest of the ingredients at the beginning? I don’t necessarily want them to disintegrate.

    1. Yes, I think adding some onions at the beginning would be yummy! I don’t think they will disintegrate.

  5. I did not have an au jus mix so I used a beefy onion soup mix instead. This turned our great. I will keep this one. Everyone loved it.

      1. I used one 2 cup pack of brown gravy, a beefy onion soup mix, and an au jus mix. I only cooked for about 5 hours. We used thin cut New York Strip and then I cut it into strips before cooking. When
        It was finished the gravy wasn’t as thick as I prefer so added a cornstarch and water mix. We served it over mashed potatoes. Turned our perfect!

      I have made this in a pot on the stove many times. I slice steak into strips, throw them in a pot with a little oil, toss in chopped onions, brown it a bit, and turned burner down. Put in 2 cups of water, put the lid on and let it simmer about 45 minutes. Then I add beef stock, spices and a bit of flour. When it thickens it’s ready to go. It’s always a hit at our table. We can’t use a lot of the mixes, so always try to figure out our home made recipes.

    Great recipe but instead of waiting 8hrs in slow cooker you can pan sear steaks and toss them in an insta-pot and it will be ready in an hour tops.
