Come home to a comforting, ready-to-eat entree with this slow-cooker favorite of Marcia Schroeder. A neighbor in River Edge, New Jersey originally shared the recipe. “It’s so easy and fills the house with a wonderful aroma,“ Marcia says. “I’ve served it often…guests always want the recipe.“ TIP: Mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli with lemon butter make this a hearty meal for two. Also, leftovers are so tender and tasty, you just might want to double this recipe to serve over noodles or in sandwiches the next day.

"This is a quick and easy meal that's perfect for my little slow cooker. (It cooks little hot, so mine was perfect when I checked it at 5 hours.) I used a pound of flank steak, and it was beautifully tender, with a flavorful gravy. I was short on time, so I didn't brown the meat, and it was just fine."
