What’s Cookin’ in the Parsonage?

Hey friends!  How does Easy Steak and Gravy sound?  This is an entree’ dish with little prep and big pay off!  I tasted this at a church dinner recently, and I had to find the recipe because the meat was so tender, and the gravy over it so delicious.  I was shocked to learn how simple it was to make!  Then a day later when a friend was sick, I knew this was the menu I’d make for her family because it’s full of flavor and down home comfort.

4# Cubed steak
2 cans Cream of Chicken Soup

Dredge steak in flour seasoned with salt and pepper. In a skillet, brown meat on both sides in a couple tablespoons of hot oil.  Place in crock pot.
In a medium size saucepan, mix soup and 2 cans of water on stovetop.  Mix until blended.  Pour over meat.
Turn crock pot on high for one hour.
Reduce to low and cook for 4 hours.
Serves 8 

Steak and Gravy
Mashed Potatoes
Green Beans
Garlic Cheese Biscuits

Garlic Cheese Biscuits – Love these!
2 cups biscuit/baking mix
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion
2/3 cup  milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


Combine the biscuit mix, cheese and onion in a large bowl. Stir in milk until a soft dough forms; stir 30 seconds longer.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 450° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Combine butter and garlic powder; brush over biscuits. Serve warm. Yield: 15 biscuits.

This is a meal that is easy to put together.  It makes a great dinner to come home to after church.  It can be cooking while you’re at services.  Have the potatoes either already mashed before you leave, or have the pan ready to turn on and cook as soon as you walk in the door.  Meanwhile, the biscuits can be made up and baked and the green beans cooked.  This meal is fit for company and hearty appetites!
What have you been stirring up in your kitchen?

  1. It's on sale this week at Ingles for $3.28. I'll bet you could get a packaged marked down for a couple of dollars for a pound.
    Paul would love this recipe!
