Easy Slow Cooker Beef and Mushrooms

Easy Slow Cooker Beef and Mushrooms

Introduction

Easy crock pot meal. Tastes great over brown rice (not included in calorie count). Easy crock pot meal. Tastes great over brown rice (not included in calorie count).
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 pound lean beef stew meat
    1 can low-fat cream of mushroom soup
    1/2 cup water
    1 packet dry onion soup mix
    8 oz fresh mushrooms (whole or sliced, your preference)

Directions

Brown meat in skillet over med-high heat. You can skip this step to save time and the recipe will still be great. I just think it gives the meat more flavor and helps it hold together better. Place meat in 4 quart crock pot. Place mushrooms on top of beef. Combine soup, water and soup mix and pour over mushrooms and beef. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.

Tastes great over brown rice or hot cooked noodles (neither are included in calorie count).

Number of Servings: 4

    Just made this for dinner tonight, when making it I realized that I didn't have onion soup mix, so I chopped up an onion, threw in some sherry (1/4c.) some worchestershire (few teaspoons) and some beef boullion concentrate. and its turned out excellently! Just had to share! Thanks!!

    Made today..was sooo good. Used others suggestions in comments and put only .5 onion soup mix (with roasted garlic), added 1 cup celery, 1 cup carrots, 1 cup peas, and 4 small potatoes cut up. All together was only 409 calories for 4 portions, and it actually made at least 5 BIG portions, so less. - 11/17/10

  • Amazingly simple and tasty! I add 4-5 carrots cut into 3-4 pieces each and also a quarter to a half of a large onion coarsely chopped. The whole family loves it! Good, warm comfort food, especially for the winter months. - 1/31/14
