“My mom used to make this wonderful dish, and it's always been one that I love,“ writes Deanne Stephens from McMinnville, Oregon. “I especially like how the thick gravy drapes both the meat and the potatoes.”

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 18, 2014

This was also my first time to make potatoes in the crock pot. They turned out great! Very tender and tasty. I was out of onion soup mix so I used herb &garlic soup blend that I had on hand & it was very good.. Super easy and great aroma while it was cooking.

First time cooking potatoes in crockpot and I was surprised at the tenderness. The meat however was just okay and everyone thought it needed salt.

MY REVIEW

We tried this recipe tonight for the first time. I was wary of cooking the potatoes this way, but I have to say the potatoes were tender and a great addition to this easy meal! I love round steak in the slow cooker; so economical a cut of meat. This turned out really good with a pleasant, but not overpowering, tomato flavor. Recommended!

I made this just as written, except I was short on time so I used my pressure cooker instead of the crock pot. It was great! I can't wait to cook it in the crock pot, too. I am sure it will be very tender and tasty! Thank you for the recipe.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 12, 2012

I thought this meal was delicious, but my hubby gave it an "okay" review. The meat was incredibly tender as were the potatoes. It took just minutes to get it ready for the crock pot, so it's a keeper in my book.
