  • Slow cooker


  • 2 lbs stewing beef
  • 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 3 tblsp Bisto (or any kind of gravy mix)
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 package onion soup mix


  • In a medium bowl, combine cream of mushroom soup, gravy mix, beef broth, onion soup mix, and garlic.
  • Place stewing beef in slow cooker.
  • Pour gravy mix over beef, and stir to combine.
  • Cook on low for 6 hours.
  • Serve over mashed potatoes or rice.
  • Enjoy!


  • Thicken gravy to your liking, by removing beef & stirring in more gravy mix. Stir until thickened. I rarely have to do this, but some prefer thicker sauces.
  • I have children, and a husband, that can't stand mushrooms. But this recipe would be amazing with diced mushrooms!
