Bought a large outside round roast, cut 2 one inch slabs off and put in slow cooker along with rest of ingredients. Low heat for 6 hours and turned out delicious and tender. next time would cut down on onion soup mix, a bit too salty, had to thicken up gravy a little. Will make again for sure.

This delicious recipe has been around for a long time, only using chuck roast instead of round steak. I started making it in the oven (pre-slow cookers) for my late husband around 40 years ago. He absolutely loved it, and it is still one of my go-to recipes. Thanks for sharing it!

This recipe is a regular at our house now. I also have changed the onion soup mix to beef onion soup mix and cooked with beef tips to service over egg noodles for beef tips and noodles. Equally as good.

This was delicious, inexpensive, and oh-so-easy! Everyone enjoyed the tender, flavorful beef. I'm sure you could use any cut of steak you liked, but the round steak cooked up nicely in my crockpot.

Mmmmmm - yummy! My husband and I loved this. Great crockpot recipe! There wasan't alot of fat in the meat I bought so the "gravy" wasn't swimming in it. Delicious!
