House smelled so good! Made this last night, did use a London broil steak which I had on hand. The meat was so tender. did not need any tapioca (or any thickening ingredients). Sauce thickened up perfectly without. Served with mashed potatoes and tossed salad. Such a nice simple dinner. Thank you Denise, with add this to my recipe box for sure!!!

Found it to be too salty and should have had some water added. Way too thick, as is.Tasty but not a repeat recipe for me.

I use cream of celery soup instead of the mushroom (taste preference). Always double the recipe - leftovers are wonderful.Serve over cooked egg noodles - wonderful!

My sons would eat an engine block if it was cooked in the crock pot! This recipe is simple and straightforward but very tasty and it uses a cheaper cut of meat. Very economical. You might very well already have the sauce ingredients in your pantry! Good for family on a chilly night or even to take to that someone who needs a meal due to illness, surgery, etc.

Delicious creamy mushroom and beef goodness! I didn't have onion soup mix on hand so made my own and added some thyme because it sang out for some.

We make this with mashed potatoes. All four members of the family love this meal (unusual) and it's incredibly easy to make.

This is soooo good with my own tweaks. I added some brown gravy mix and some water because of it. It makes the gravy very rich and delicious with mashed potatoes. Also didn't add the tapioca.
