"Original owner of this recipe - Kathie Gangstead (aka Kathie Morris). I now use a teaspoon of "Better Than Boullion" beef paste and a 1/2 cup of coffee. I have discovered that cold coffee is great for this dish and roasting meats etc. I am over the moon about the reviews and love that people enjoy it. I also like to see the variations. Everyone should make a recipe their own. I try it the first time "by the book" and then I add and subtract to fit our family's tastes."

"Since I was cooking for 5 big eaters I doubled the recipe, but instead of using celery I used one can of cream of mushroom soup and one can of cream of celery soup. I also added abouth3/4 of a small can of tomato paste, as well as substituting beef broth for the water as suggested. I didn't add any garlic as I don't like it. This turned out to be one of the best crock pot recipes I have ever made."

"My family absolutely loved this. Meat was tender, no knife needed. I did substitute beef broth for water and bouillon. Next time will add a little more broth and maybe some mushrooms."

"The meat was so delicious and fork tender and we loved the flavor of the gravy it made! I love simple things like this that I can throw in the crockpot and forget about all day! Definitely a keeper!"

"This recipe was delicious yet simple to make. We will definitely make this again. I did omit the celery. Also, I always make my own cream sauce rather than using the canned soup. I even used a slightly cheaper cut of steak and it still was so tender that it fell apart with the fork when you were eating. It was so nice to have a delicious dinner waiting after a day at work."

"My husband and I thought it was absolutely wonderful! Didn't have any celery so I added a bit of celery flakes. Had it with some long grain and wild rice. Didn't add the beef bouillon into it until it was almost done because I forgot to add it at the beginning. Didn't make any difference, as it still turned out wonderful!"
