Yesterday, we had our first meal in our Slow Cooker / Crock Pot and it was delicious!
Here are the pics, followed by the recipe.

It was really very, very simple, with a few modifications from 2nd Man.
3 1/2 - 4 lb beef roast, cut into bite size portions
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup flour
1 8oz pkg of sliced mushrooms
1 pkt onion soup mix
1/2 Cup dry red wine
1 can French Onion soup
Spray bottom and sides of an oval crock pot with cooking spray or olive oil.
Put meat in a Ziploc bag with flour and shake until coated.
Place flour coated beef chunks in bottom of crock pot.
Mix together mushrooms, onion soup mix, wine, and can of french onion soup in separate bowl.
Pour over beef, then place lid on slow cooker and cook on low for 7-8 hours.
Ours came out tasty and oh so tender. 2nd Man baked a couple dozen homemade yeast rolls earlier in the day, and then made a pan of simple white rice with butter. We spooned the beef with mushroom onion gravy over the top of the rice and served with a roll. Simple and delicious and best of all, easy. After only about 5 minutes prep time, I put the lid on the cooker and we didn't think about it until 8 hours later. Well, that's not entirely true, we smelled it all day long and stayed hungry, so we DID think about it, ha.
It was most definitely worth the wait!
Try it, I think you'll like it.
