Braised Beef with Mushrooms

This slow-cooked beef is so tender, it melts in your mouth. The ingredients have time to season the meat, and it's a delicious entree for two. —Pamela Boersma, Monument, Colorado

    Perfect! Didn't change anything but did use slow cooker. Served over rice. Steamed veggies on the side. As a volunteer food editor for Taste of Home I love preparing classic dishes that are quick to put together.
