Ingredients
  • 1 – 1 ½ lbs. boneless beef round steak (larger cuts of round steak will also work for this recipe)
  • 1 (1 ounce) packet dry onion soup mix
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1 sweet onion, sliced
  • 1 cup water (or use beef broth for added flavor)
Instructions
FOR THE OVEN:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Sprinkle half of the dry onion soup mix in the bottom of a baking dish (I used a 2 ½ -quart baking dish, but any size the fits your meat will work). Place steak on top; sprinkle with remaining dry soup mix. Add mushrooms and onions on top. Pour water over all.
  2. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 60-90 minutes (or until steak and vegetables are tender). Thicker cuts of beef will require the longer cooking time, so adjust accordingly.
  3. Thinly slice the steak against the grain and spoon mushrooms and onions over top.
FOR THE SLOW COOKER:
  1. Sprinkle half of the dry onion soup mix in the bottom of a slow cooker. Place steak on top; sprinkle with remaining dry soup mix. Add mushrooms and onions on top. Pour water over all.
  2. Cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or on HIGH for 3-4 hours, until steak is fall-apart tender.
  3. Thinly slice the steak against the grain and spoon mushrooms and onions over top.
