Crockpot Beef Strips and Mushrooms

My sister-in-law emailed me some fantastic crockpot recipes after we recently had a conversation about how much we love our crockpots.  I could go on for days and days about how much I love it, but I'll spare you.  This one sounded like a winner the first time I read it, and it couldn't be simpler.
Beef Strips and Mushrooms
1 pound top round steak
1 package (16 ounce) frozen stir fry mix
1 can (10 ounce) Golden Mushroom Soup
1 package (8 ounce) sliced fresh mushrooms
1 envelope onion soup mix
Slice steak diagonally across grain into thin strips (1/2 inch or so).  Combine all ingredients in slow cooker and cook 3-4 hours on high or 6-7 on low.  Serve over rice or your choice of pasta.

I chose a broccoli, carrot and water chestnut stir fry mix.  The original recipe called for a pepper stir-fry mix which for the life of me I could not find at the store.  I was tired of searching and grabbed the nearest one.  Served over rice, this is the perfect week night dish.  It's a one-dish meal that reminds me of a very saucy beef and broccoli.  It had a wonderful flavor and the beef was soooo tender.  I cooked it for about 3 1/2 hours on high and it was perfect.  The vegetables almost melted in your mouth and the mushroom flavor was excellent.  I love it...I'll be making it again soon.  Enough said!

  1. I love mushrooms and this sounds so easy to make and yet so delicious. Plus, I love that you can add even more vegetables to it to make it healthier. I'll definitely have to try this.

  2. My SIL said that she adds carrots to it, because her kids like them. You could do just about anything and I think it would turn out great! It's a great way to "sneak" those veggies into the dish! :)
