Lauren Alexander: Perfect Meal for the Time Change (urrrggh)...

My least favorite day has come and gone but it leaves behind its wrath. Ok, maybe I'm being dramatic. But the day we turn our clocks back is by far my least favorite day of the year. And now that I've got an 18 month old, the time change is even more brutal than in years past. Why? Because the little guy has no idea what's happened and can't figure out why waking up at 6am isn't just as good as waking up at 7am. I'm tired just talking about it.
This, my friends, is just another example of why I live for the crockpot. At the end of the day (and especially these days when it's 5 o'clock but feels like 8 o'clock) I just want to blink my eyes and have dinner in front of the family. And the crockpot is the closest to a miracle I have found.
Today's recipe is another southern classic that I remember watching my mom make often. Except dear mom slaved away with tons of steps and meticulous timing. I have no patience for either of those things so I choose to dump all of my ingredients in a crockpot and 8 hours later...voila!
Mom's Country Steak
4-6 cube steak (such a cheap cut of meat!)
1 can cream of mushroom condensed soup
1 packet dry onion soup mix
1/2 cup of water
That's it! Seriously! Dump them all in the crockpot, cook on low for 8 hours (or high for 4 hours) and serve. I typically serve it over rice with a vegetable side or two. Honestly it doesn't get any easier than this. Not to mention seriously inexpensive. And the greatest part is it tastes EXACTLY like mom used to make, minus the actual work. Perfection!


  1. I am SO making this. Sounds delish!!!!!!!!

  2. I have the leftovers in my fridge as we speak. It is seriously the easiest meal!
