Ingredients in

slow cook bucket fillet

: sliced onions and Worcestershire sauce: Instead of

  • the Lipton onion soup mix, we’re using sliced onions and Worcestershire sauce. This combination is paradise for your taste buds!
  • Mushrooms: Instead of mushroom soup cream, we’re using mushrooms fresh here. Buy the pre-cut version if you want and save time and effort! If you haven’t made it to the grocery store, you can include canned mushrooms.
  • Diced tomatoes: provide the liquid for our sauce mixture. You can use tomatoes cut into regular or small cubes or even tomatoes roasted over the fire. However, it doesn’t really taste like tomato when combined with the other ingredients in the recipe.
  • Cube steak – of course! The cubic fillet can also be called Swiss steak. It is a round steak that has gone through a meat tenderizer. You might see little indentations in this cut of meat and that’s what it’s all about! If you’re feeling ambitious and educational, you can read about beef cuts. As it cooks, it releases juices and makes its own meat broth for cooking. You can also use round steak, top sirloin, or top round steak in this recipe.
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cornstarch: You can also use general-purpose flour

How to make

clay pot bucket steak Making

bucket steak in your slow cooker is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Step 1: Add the ingredients. Add onion, sliced mushrooms, diced tomatoes, and Worcestershire sauce to your clay pot.

Season the diced fillets with salt and pepper, then nest them in the clay pot.

Step 2: Cook it! Simmer for 5-6 hours until meat is well cooked and tender.

Step 3: Make the sauce recipe. We are using cold water and cornstarch to make our sauce. When we mix these two ingredients and add them to the pot, it is called suspension. It will thicken all those delicious juices and turn into a sauce as it thickens. Let it cook for an additional 20-30 minutes until it thickens.

Can the bucket steak be cooked slowly?

Of course! The bucket steak benefits from cooking a long time and slow cooking in the clay pot is a great way to achieve a tender bucket fillet. Besides cooking it in the Instant Pot, it’s the best way to make this cut of meat. I like it much more than cooking bucket steak on the stove What to

serve with slow

I love serving this cozy classic with undrained mashed potatoes, egg noodles or served over rice. On the other vegetable side, I would go with Italian green beans or sautéed carrots
