What is Cube Steak?

Cube fillet is an inexpensive cut of beef, usually top or round sirloin, that has been flattened and tenderized. It is easily recognizable in the meat section by its cubed pattern that bleeds the meat. This makes it a great meat choice to cook in the clay pot, as you’ll benefit from cooking low and slow with salty ingredients that help infuse the meat with tons of flavor and break it down to make it so tender.

Can I use frozen bucket steak in this recipe?

No. The bucket fillet should be thoroughly thawed in the refrigerator before being added to the slow cooker. Frozen bucket fillet runs the risk of not being fully cooked, so it is not recommended to use it in this recipe.

Do I need to brown the cube steak?

No, you don’t need to brown the steak before adding it to the slow cooker. It goes raw. Easy!

How does the sauce thicken?

If the sauce in the slow cooker is not thick enough, just add some cornstarch milk. Make the suspension by adding 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of cold water. Mix until combined and add to the slow cooker for the last 15 minutes or so of cooking. Stir a little to combine.

Can I do this in the oven?

absolutely! Be sure to use a large and deep enough baking dish, such as a 9 x 13 plate. Spray it with cooking spray before following the recipe on how to place the ingredients. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 2 hours or until the bucket fillet is tender.

What to serve with cube steak

Be sure to choose your carbs to help absorb all that delicious sauce made by yourself from the cube steak. Mashed potatoes are always a great option or you can go with egg noodles or rice.

I also love having some kind of bread to help absorb that tasty sauce. My 3 ingredient sour cream cookies are super easy and quick and perfect for this meal.

Don’t forget to serve a vegetable to complete this family-favorite dinner. My roasted Brussels sprouts with air fryer would go perfectly with this bucket steak or this simple asparagus dish.

How to store and reheat


Cooled leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. You can freeze the cooled leftovers in a freezer-safe container for up to 2 months.

Refrigerated and thawed leftovers can be reheated in the microwave in 30-second increments or on the stove over medium heat, with sauce included. Stir to prevent sticking or burning. You may need to add a pinch of water to the sauce if it is too thick.
