  1. Mix together the cream of chicken soup and beef gravy in a slow cooker, cover, and set the cooker to Low.
  2. With a meat tenderizing mallet or the edge of a small, sturdy plate, pound the beef round steaks on a work surface across the grain of the meat to make many small cuts across the meat fibers. Sprinkle Greek seasoning on both sides of the steaks, and sprinkle dry chicken gravy mix over the steaks to make a dry coating. Stir any excess dry gravy mix into the slow cooker.
  3. Heat olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Pan-fry the steaks in the hot oil until browned on both sides, about 8 minutes. Place the steaks into the gravy mix in the slow cooker, spooning gravy over the steaks to moisten. Cook the onion rings in the hot skillet until browned, about 10 minutes, stirring often, and spread the onions over the steaks in the cooker.
  4. Recover the cooker, and cook until meat is very tender and the gravy is thick, about 5 hours.

After reading the review of bomackin, it is clear that the name of this recipe was ill-chosen. This system will not allow me to change it though. Although it is a "breaded" and "fried in oil" steak, it is actually simply a browned steak cooked in gravy and certainly not "chicken" fried. It is really tasty, however, and my family loves it with mashed potatoes! As the creator of this recipe, I am sorry for any confusion caused by the title and hope you may give it a try anyway!!

Chicken Fried Steak is breaded and fried in oil, like fried chicken. One of the great tricks to a great chicken fried steak is to include a touch of sugar in order to caramelize the breading as it fries, then, when the steaks are all fried, leave some of the fried crumblies in the pan. Remove as much oil as will not be needed for the gravy and make white gravy but only after browning the flour (use the leftover seasoned flour, complete with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and that all important sugar). This produces a not so quite 'white', milk gravy, with a richer and more enjoyable flavor. Don't try to bread recently defrosted meat unless it has been thoroughly dried, e.g. - with paper towels. Mashed potatoes, skins still on, are fabulous with such a dish, and are most easily done via a crockpot, IMHO.... but it's all quite tough on the waist line, so we don't make it often any more...... *sigh*....

Excellent recipe! A change from regular steak, the family loved it and it was so easy! The meat was so tender it just fell apart!

This is a good recipe to utilize inexpensive round steak. I will make it again because I really liked the gravy it made with the onions, but I think it is more like swiss steak, def not chickien fried steak. Anyways, I deglazed with dry cooking sherry after I fried the meat. I did not have greek seasoning, which contains mint, so I just used italian seasoning. I served with boiled okra and garlic mashed potatoes. Hubby and all 5 kids enjoyed it!

This is my husband's favorite crock pot meal now. I made it just like the recipe said. Sometimes I add mushrooms.

I really liked this recipe. It was so easy to put together and tasted really good. There was lots of gravy to put over mashed potatoes or pasta. I didn't have a package of chicken gravy but I had turkey. It still tasted good. I think this is versatile enough that you could use almost any combination of cream soup, can of gravy and package of gravy mix. I'll make sure to put chicken gravy mix on my grocery list and try it as written next time.
