Crock Pot Cube Steak and Gravy Recipe

I found a recipe that was sorta/kinda like this one, but apparently it was written by a woman, and it had things about recipes that women care about, but that make no sense to men.  There were all sorts of measurements in it.. 1 lb this, 1 can that... cook this long, simmer for WHATEVER.  Anyway... there were just too many dang instructions for a real man to follow.  So..

Things you're going to put in it: Some cube steaks you bought and froze because they were on sale and cheap. Some mushroom soup that your girlfriend/wife bought to make something else with. Some water.  Not that fancy kind from a bottle... .you can get it from the tap. those little cubes of powder

Everyone has a need. Everyone has a concern. Everyone will have to live with the outcome. Yet anger and apathy encircles and entraps us at every juncture. Some are too mad to talk about it, while others have simply given up. That's usually a result of ignorance. By ignorance, I don't mean un-intelligent. I mean be 'unaware, or uninformed'. To have any level of discussion about a subject you must at a minimum be informed. Ignorance has no race, color, or religion. It just exists. The best I can figure is that there is no reason for it, other than to thwart the efforts of the informed. The only way I know to fight it is to...well... be inf
