  • 3 pounds chuck roast or other stew meat cubed
  • 8 Yukon Gold potatoes cubed
  • 6 medium carrots peeled and sliced
  • 2 (10.5-ounce) cans golden mushroom soup
  • 2-3 cups water or beef broth
  • 1 (2-ounce) package onion soup mix
  • garlic salt and pepper to taste (optional)
  • chopped parsley optional


  • Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker.
  • Cook on low for approximately 6 hours, then serve. Season with garlic salt, pepper and chopped parsley, if desired.



Stove Top Directions: Cook meat with 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large pot over medium-high heat until well browned. Add mushroom soup, onion soup mix and water or beef broth. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 1 hour. Add potatoes and carrots and simmer for 1 more hour, or until vegetables are fork-tender. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
For Added Flavor: If you like, you can sear your meat in a pan on each side before cubing it and adding to the slow cooker. This will give it a nice flavor and a crisper outside.
