Slow Cooker Braised Beef

I made my first very fallish-winter dinner last night and my family seemed happy to see it back in our dinner rotation. This recipe is super easy and a good one to throw in the slow cooker in the morning when you have a busy day ahead. I call it “stew,” but my husband says it’s more like a braised beef– so that’s what I’m going to call it here since that sounds like more of a crowd pleaser. (I promise it’s delish!)

What You Need

  • 2-3 lbs. beef chuck roast
  • 1 packet dry Lipton’s onion soup
  • 2 cans French Onion soup
  • 2 cans Golden Mushroom soup
  • 2 cups mushrooms (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste

What You Do

  1. Place everything in slow cooker and set to high for 6-8 hours.
  2. Serve over egg yolk noodles and with a green vegetable on the side.

Your family will think you were cooking all day. Enjoy!
