I love when a recipe I've created turns out to have more versatility to it then planned. A stew can be made into its original concept, a stew; but the possibilities for more abounds. A pot pie, casserole or soup can be created with the leftover of that simple stew.
So, I give to you.....
This recipe can be used in two ways, as a stew served with noodles, potatoes or rice; or as a soup served with warm, crusty bread.
3 lbs sirloin steak, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 medium onions, slivered
¾ lb mushrooms, cut into ¼ inch slices
2 (14 ½ oz) cans diced tomatoes
2 (10 ¾ oz) cans cream of mushroom soup
1 (10 ¾ oz) can beef broth
2 tsp ground black pepper
¼ tsp cayenne pepper flakes
1 tsp each sea salt, garlic powder, thyme and marjoram
Spray a 6 qt crock pot with non-stick spray. Place meat, onions, mushrooms and tomatoes into pot. In a large bowl, mix together, soup, broth and seasoning; pour over ingredients in pot. Set on low and cook for 8-10 hours; mix ingredients together after 3 hours. Serve as desired; as a stew, soup or both.
