Sweet Autumn Steak Strips

One of my favorite things about my experiments is one often leads to another.  In this case, our Hot Caramel Apple Cider lead to my Sweet Autumn Steak Strips!  Of course, in the slow cooker.


  • 2 cups Hot Caramel Apple Cider
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 lb extra thin steak (you can either purchase thin steaks or cut thicker steaks into 1/4 inch by 1/4 inch strips)
  • 1 cup brown gravy mix (or 4 packets)


  1. Cut steak into 1/4 inch thin strips and set aside.
  2. Pour water and cider into slow cooker.
  3. Add meat.
  4. Set timer on low for 1.5 hours.
  5. Go do something.
  6. After 1.5 hours, whisk in gravy mix and stir till everything dissolves.
  7. Set timer for 1.5 hours.
  8. Go do something.
  9. Return 1.5 hours later.
  10. Serve strips with gravy over mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, garlic bread, rice or even pasta and watch them disappear!


  • This might be more gravy than you can use in a single meal but you can always freeze it!
  • Raisins and apple cubes make a great addition to this recipe!
