Slow Cooker Easy Steak and Mushrooms


Slow Cooker Easy Steak and Mushrooms-
I made this recipe today- Slow Cooker Steak & Mushrooms from Nancy's blog, with a little modification. I wanted something I could walk away from, cook this weekend and have some nice leftovers. I'm working on making a big batch of something each weekend. I bought two skirt steaks, since I couldn't find flank steaks. I left out the wine, added more broth and added a little Worcestershire sauce. First broil the meat-



In the bottom of the crock pot below the meat I added a large rough chopped yellow onion, and several Yukon gold potatoes-


Next add the rest of the ingredients, and lots of pepper. I added baby carrots the last hour.

Put on the lid and walk away!

I cooked mine on high for 4 hours, and it was nice and tender. Make sure you cut against the grain to serve, or you will have stringy beef. I cut this up a bit before adding the mushroom mix. I cut into 4" x 4" pieces, then sliced before serving. 

Yum Yum!

looks delicious! I have a hard time sometimes figuring out the grain of the meat. I know it makes a difference for slicing, but sometimes I just can't tell!

On this cut there's long "strings" you can see. You cut across the meats grain not in line with the strings, hope that helps?

Oh my, that looks delicious! Especially this time of year, when a nice warm meal warms the heart as well as the soul.
