Step 1

Season both sides of the cube steaks with garlic salt and black pepper OR you can season them with the montreal steak seasoning instead. Dredge the steaks in the seasoned all purpose flour. Pour olive oil into your skillet, just enough to coat the bottom of the skillet, and add 2 pats of butter to the skillet. Heat the oil and butter in the skillet being careful not to burn the butter as its heating and then brown the steaks in the skillet on both sides until they are golden brown and crisp, approximately 2 - 3 minutes on each side. Spray the inside liner of your crock pot with the cooking oil spray. Place the 4 browned cube steaks on the bottom of your crock pot. Pour 2 cups of water in a large glass and add the brown gravy mix. Stir with a fork until well blended and there are no lumps showing in the glass and then pour gravy mixture over the steaks. Crush 3 or 4 garlic cloves and then place the whole garlic cloves inside the crockpot. You can peel the garlic if you want or just throw them in as they will be removed and discarded after cooking. Spread the onions on top of the steaks in an even layer and then add the sliced potatoes on top of that. Put the 2 bay leaves in the slow cooker, cover with your lid and then cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6 - 8 hours. After the steaks have cooked for the required amount of time, taste and re-season if needed and then add the 2 tbsp of worcestershire sauce to the crock pot about 15 minutes before serving.
