Ooo La La!

My friend from the What's Cooking board on the Nest (Carrie) made this recipe and posted it on her blog and it was right up my alley.

I did make some slight alterations and I'll add those below. This is a great crock pot meal and wonderful for a winters night. It's also a nice variation on beef stew - one that isn't just potatoes and beef and peas.

French Onion Beef
(From: Pillsbury Pot Pie and Casserole Booklet & Carrie's Sweet Life)
  • 1 1/4 lb. boneless beef round steak (I just used stew meat)
  • 1 pkg (8 oz.) sliced fresh mushrooms (I doubled)
  • 1 lg. onion, sliced separated into rings
  • 1 can (10 1/2 oz.) condensed french onion soup (I also had to add a can of beef broth and some water to have enough liquid for cooking for the day)
  • 1 pkg. (6oz.) 10-minute herb stuffing mix (I just used bagged stuffing mix from Peppridge Farms because it's what I had on hand.)
  • 1/4 c. butter or margarine, melted (Omitted)
  • 1 c. shredded mozzarella cheese (omitted - but I did use some of the leftover shredded asiago I had on hand and we each topped our own)

Spray slowe cooker with cooking spray. Cut beef into 6 serving size pieces. In cooker, layer half each of the beef, mushrooms, and onions; repeat layers. Por soup over top.

Cover; cook on low heat setting 8 to 10 hours.

In medium bowl, mix stuffing mix, butter, and 1/2 cup liquid from slow cooker; toss to mix. Place stuffing on top of mixture in cooker. Increase heat setting to High. Cover; cook 10 minutes longer or until stuffing is fluffy. Sprinkl with cheese. Cover cook until cheese is melted.
