Author: Judith Hannemann


  • 4-6 large beef cube steaks about 2 lb total weight
  • 2 tbs olive or vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 10 oz whole crimini baby bella mushrooms (see NOTES)
  • 1/4 cup ranch seasoning mix -OR- 1 envelope commercial ranch seasoning
  • 1/2 cup butter melted (see NOTES)
  • 2 tbs grated Parmesan cheese
  • Seasoned Flour:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  • Mix seasoned flour ingredients and place them on a plate. Dredge the steaks.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil. Brown the cube steaks and place them in the bottom of a 5-7 quart slow cooker.
  • Deglaze the pan with the 1/2 cup water. Pour this over the cube steaks in the slow cooker.
  • Place the mushrooms on top of the steaks.
  • Mix the ranch seasoning (link to homemade in ingredient list) with the melted butter and pour over the mushrooms. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top.
  • Cover and cook on low 4-7 hours, high 3-5 hours. Check for doneness at the minimum time--all cookers cook differently and Ninja will cook in 2/3 of regular slow-cooker time.


White mushrooms may be substituted and button size is best.
I use unsalted butter and I also make my own ranch seasoning without the salt. The link to my favorite recipe is in the ingredient list.
