Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

If you like meat and mushrooms, this stew is for you.

3 lbs lean stewing beef, cut into bite-size cubes
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup*
8 oz sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup beef broth
1 envelope dry onion soup mix

Combine all ingredients in a crock pot/slow cooker; stir to combine.

Place lid on cooker and cook approximately 10 hours or until beef is tender.

If you like a thicker stew, thicken with a little cornstarch stirred until dissolved in water. Stir into the stew.

*If you want to add a little different flavor, use cream of celery soup.
