This Slow Cooker Creole Steak Stew is total comfort food! This stew turns out a bit differently, every time I make it! This recipe can be a definite fridge cleaner! I always throw in whatever needs to get used up as well as all of the usual things I throw in!
My husband and I disagree on how thick this stew should be! I have included both options in the recipe! I just love dipping a fresh, crusty slice of bread into the stew to soak up some of the gravy! I can’t be the only one? Can I?
Speaking of gravy, this Slow Cooker Creole Steak Stew produces some of the most delicious gravy! Don’t get me wrong, this stew is amazing in its thicker state but as I stated already, I am a bread dipper from way back!

Slow Cooker Creole Steak Stew
- 1 1/2 cups onion, chopped
- 1 1/2 cups celery, sliced
- 1 1/2 cups carrots, sliced or chopped
- 2 pounds flank steak, boneless, 1cut into bite sized chunks cup
- 1 can (14 or 28 oz) tomatoes, diced, with juice
- 1 cup beef broth
- 2 cups mushrooms, sliced
- 1 can (5 1/2 - 6 oz) tomato paste
- 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
- 1 can (14 oz) corn, drained
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon basil, dried
- 1 tablespoon oregano, dried
- cooking spray
Prepare a large slow cooker with cooking spray. Sprinkle onions all over the bottom. Next sprinkle celery, then carrots and last the steak.
Next, grab a large bowl and dump in your canned tomatoes. If you prefer a thicker stew, use the smaller, 14 oz. size. If you like you stew with a thinner sauce, use the larger 28 oz. size.
While your bowl is still in front of you add broth, mushrooms, tomato paste, and all of the spices. Stir until blended. Pour on top of the meat in your slow cooker and do not stir the mixture around at all. While pouring make sure the mixture goes everywhere! As evenly as possible. Again, do not stir the contents of your slow cooker.
Cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 3 1/2 to 4. Remove lid and stir. Taste the gravy and decide if you want to add any more seasoning or my son's favorite, hot sauce to satisfy your personal taste! Serve with bread for dipping into the gravy or a side salad if desired. Enjoy!
