Allow the slow cooker to sit with the lid off for a few minutes until thickened.

Crock Pot Cube Steak FAQs
Cube steak is a cut of beef that can be very tough. It is usually pounded with a meat tenderizer tool. The texture that the tenderizer creates in the meat most often resembles "cubes." Tenderizing steak makes it much more tender to eat.
Because of its toughness, cube steak makes a perfect cut of meat to use in a slow cooker!
To reduce the fat in this recipe, use fat-free cream cheese and fat-free sour cream instead of the full-fat versions.
Cooking it on a low temperature for a longer period of time with plenty of moisture will break down the steak and help to tenderize. A crock pot is ideal for cooking cube steak.
Yes, it does get tender the longer it cooks but it needs moisture and a low cooking temperature otherwise it will just dry out.
If cooked on low it will take anywhere from 5 to 6 hours. On high it will cook in about 3 to 5 hours.
It is best to thaw the cube steaks beforehand to control the cooking time better, and reduce excess liquid in the pot. Partially thawed cube steaks are fine, as long as they are separated apart.
