Variations Ideas

We love recipes that we can change the ingredients or use what we have. I often time will stock up on meat if I find a good deal. Try these variations the next time you want to make this recipe:

  • Rather than cut up round steak, just buy stew meat. It is already pre-cut so it is perfect to toss in your crock pot.
  • Sirloin Steak – Sirloin steak is a great meat to use for this recipe. Plus you can always find a good deal on this cut of meat. We have also used chuck roast for a delicious variations.
  • Garlic Butter Steak BitesWhen my husband grills, I will have him put garlic butter before serving. It also works great with these steak bites.
  • Au Jus Gravy Mix – This is a great addition to this tender steak bites recipe as it adds flavor and thickness to the texture.
  • Fresh Herbs – Feel free to add in fresh herbs to this dish. Fresh parsley, fresh rosemary or fresh thyme is a great addition. We have even added in red pepper flakes for a kick of flavor.

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1 – Cut round steak in about one inch bite size pieces and place in slow cooker.
  • Step 2 – Then pour beef broth over meat.
  • Step 3 – Top with onion and garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Step 4 – Then top with butter
  • Step 5 – Place lid on crock pot to begin cooking.
  • Step 6 – Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4, stirring occasionally.
  • Step 7 – Serve immediately and enjoy.

Recipe Tips

  • Beef Tips and GravyYou can also make a gravy by stirring 1 tablespoon cornstarch in with ½ cup of water in a small bowl. Then whisk it in with the steak juices. Then pour into crock pot and turn temperature on high to allow so the juices will thicken.
  • Cream of Mushroom SoupMix in cream of mushroom soup is a great addition to these steak bites. My sister loves to mix in mushrooms and beef broth to make crockpot beef tips and noodles.
  • Add in potatoes – You can add diced potatoes or wrap potatoes to make everything right in the crock pot.
  • Stir in Red wine – You can also add in some cooking red wine for additional flavor to the steak bites.
  • Try adding in some Worcestershire sauce. I love cooking with Worcestershire sauce and they flavor it adds to my steak.
  • Mini Crock Pot – Make this recipe in a mini crock pot and check out more of our easy Mini crock pot recipes.

Does Slow Cooking Steak make it Tender?

Yes, we think it does. Cooking steak in the slow cooker makes the steak flavorful and tender each time. Slow cooking steak allows for the flavors to really saturate the steak and it results in the best tender meat.
