Summer is the best time to drag out the slow cooker. Come home from a hard day at work and dinner is ready without adding any extra heat to the house! Here's a great one to get you started:
Beef and Gravy over Potatoes
2 pound roast (it's going to be in the slow cooker all day...buy the cheap one!), cut in small pieces.
1 can beef broth with onion
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 8 oz can sliced mushrooms (can be eliminated if you have a mushroom-phobe like I do!)
6 medium potatoes, scrubbed
Spray the slow cooker with non-stick spray. Mix all ingredients except the potatoes in the slow cooker. Lay the potatoes gently on top. Cover and cook 5-6 hours on high. Uncover and remove the potatoes. Cut each potato in half and plate. Spoon the beef and gravy over the potatoes and serve.
