Slow Cooker Cube Steaks Paprika #SundaySupper

This is comfort food. And frugal food. Cube steaks are an inexpensive cut of meat that works perfectly for a crockpot to tenderize all day. And also as a weeknight dinner that will feed a crowd. I love this recipe that sort of morphed from 5 other recipes that I make! It is a little bit BBQ and a lot of paprika- the flavors are over the top delicious! You can eat this over noodles or rice or even potatoes to sop up all the gravy that it makes.

Slow Cooker Cube Steaks Paprika


2 onions, sliced (or one large)
1 small pkg mushrooms
6-8 Cube Steaks
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 TBSP. paprika
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1 can beef broth
1/2 cup sour cream (reserved & optional)
*garnish with sliced scallions or chopped parsley

Here’s what to do:

  • Spray your crockpot  thoroughly and turn on low.
  • Add the sliced onions, garlic, and mushrooms to the bottom of the pot.
  • Dredge the steaks in flour, pepper and salt. Set on top of the vegetables.
  • Sprinkle the paprika over it all.
  • Add the BBQ sauce and broth on top.
  • Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. When ready to serve, remove the meat and add 1 cup of sour cream to the crockpot. Stir until smooth. Add the meat back in and heat until the meat is warmed through- about 15 minutes more. Serve over noodles, rice or potatoes.

That’s it- we devoured this meal- The sour cream is totally optional- you can add 2 Tbsp. heavy cream or 1/2 cup of greek yogurt if you want instead.

Game Day Crockpot Chili

Game Day!

In these parts, you are either happy or sad about this fact.

I for one, am hap, hap, happy!

Game day eats are so fun! Little finger foods, chips & dips, spreads, and cheesy goodness seem to be a-plenty when you are watching a football game- but don’t forget the main course! There is the grill of course, loaded with chicken wings or burgers, but when it gets a little colder outside, I always love a nice pot of chili on the stove or crockpot that I can dip into for an easy weekend lunch or dinner that is a healthy and hearty meal among all the snacks.


This chili is goooood. And easy to make besides being healthy.

Make these in a flash and last minute if you want- they are that easy!

chili ingredients

Onions, garlic, and jalapeño are the only things to chop- otherwise just add beans, broth, tomatoes, and spices and you’re in business:

Game Day Crockpot Chili

Easy and fast, this is a standard and delicious chili recipe that is perfect for game-day!


  • 2 Tbsp. oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 yellow onions, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. pickled jalapeños, minced
  • ¼ cup chili powder + 1 Tbsp.
  • 2 Tbsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 ½ tsp. ground coriander
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 (28oz) can whole, peeled tomatoes, broken up
  • 1 (28oz) can ground tomatoes, or crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can kidney beans, rinsed
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed
  • 3 Tbsp. masa harina
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Spray your crockpot with with oil spray, and set aside.

In a non-stick pan, heat the oil until medium hot, but not smoking, and brown the beef until thoroughly cooked- season as desired with salt/pepper. Break up the pieces as they cook to make it really small pieces and broken up. Remove from heat, and add to the crockpot.

Layer in the rest of the ingredients in the crockpot except the beans. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6-8. Add beans the last hour of cooking with the masa harina. Stir and continue to cook until done.


Serve with corn chips, shredded cheese, chopped onions, hot-sauce, or any other yumminess that you love with chili.


I made this recipe in the crockpot so I could just set it and go about my day, but I use the exact recipe on the stove, just simmering it for a few hours to let the flavors build. It is great and a go-to for me in the fall. Hope you enjoy!
