Serves: 8
 

Ingredients
  • 2T flour
  • ½ tsp Garlic powder
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1¾ lb. boneless round steak
  • 2 cans 10¾ oz cream of mushroom soup (I use 98% FF)

  • 1 envelope beef stew mix
  • 4 oz can mushrooms, sliced and drained
  • ½ c. sour cream
  • 1 T minced parsley

Instructions
  1. Combine flour, garlic powder, pepper, and paprika in slow cooker.
  2. Cut meat into 1½ inch strips. Place in flour mixture and toss until meat is well coated.
  3. Add soup, water, and stew mix. Stir until well blended.
  4. Cover and cook on low 6-7 hours.
  5. Stir in mushrooms, sour cream, and parsley and then cook on high 10-15 minutes until heated through. (Depending on the consistency of the sauce, you may need to add cornstarch to thicken or add more water/broth to thin)
  6. Serve over egg noodles.
