The slow cooker is so perfect for putting together healthy, delicious and filling meals that don’t require me to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.



  • 2 lbs sirloin steak, cubed (or stew meat)
  • 1 packet dried onion soup mix
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 3 medium onions, quartered
  • 8 small red potatoes, quartered
  • 3/4 lb (10-12 large) carrots, cut into inch sized pieces


  1. Add meat to the slow cooker and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add chopped onions, potatoes, and carrots.
  3. Add onion soup mix and cream of mushroom soup.
  4. Mix well to coat all the ingredients.
  5. Cover and set to low for 10-12 hours.


*the veggie and meat amounts are not exact, so feel free to add more if you want. Mushrooms are good in this, too, but I didn’t have any.
