Yummy Yummy in my. . .err. . . Crock Pot
Being a single mom who works full time and goes to school part time, I'm all about any meal that tastes like I spent all day preparing it but took me literally minutes to get everything done. If you're like me and secretly carry on a slightly inappropriate relationship with your Crock Pot, you need to try this recipe!
Sadly, I don't have any step by step pictures. . .but that's because there are only a couple of steps! Seriously!
Here's what you need:
1-1 1/2 lbs beef stew meat
1 can French Onion soup
1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
salt (I used course sea salt)
pepper (I prefer the grinder kind)
chopped onion (I use the dried chopped stuff but you could use fresh onions that have been diced finely)
Here's what you gotta do:
Combine first three ingredients in your crock pot and stir it up. Toss in some of the chopped onion (I just eyeballed it) and sprinkle salt and pepper in (if you are concerned about using too much, you could always leave it out and just season after cooked and served). Turn CrockPot on low and cook for 8-10 hours.
That's it! Easy peasy! I just served mine over some rice that I was able to make quickly but you could serve it over wide egg noodles or even mashed potatoes. The flavor is excellent and it was SOOO super easy to make!
