Slow Cooker Chopped Steak with Onion Mushroom Gravy


  • 1 lb very lean ground beef
  • 2 low-sodium beef stock cubes crushed*
  • 2 tbsp instant minced onion
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 10.75 oz can low sodium cream of mushroom soup*
  • 10.75 oz can condensed French onion soup
  • 1 pkg brown gravy mix
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1/4 cup flour


  • *Regular soup and stock cubes may be used if you wish.
  • Add the bread crumbs, instant onions, garlic powder, crushed stock cubes and milk in a medium bowl. Mix and let stand about 5 minutes.
  • Mix ground beef into the bread crumb mixture, mixing well. Form into 4 thin burgers.
  • Heat a large skillet over high heat and add oil.
  • Dust burgers with the flour then add to hot skillet. Brown for about 1 minute each side–you aren’t cooking the meat, just quickly browning.
  • Place browned burgers in the bottom of a slow cooker (I used a 5 quart), stacking if necessary.
  • Mix the soups, mushrooms, gravy mix and water in a small bowl. Pour over burgers.
  • Cover and cook on LOW 6-8 hours.
