Steak and Mushroom Slow Cooker Soup combines round beef steak with mushrooms and a flavorful broth to create a quick-to-assemble soup you can put in a slow cooker and forget about.
Is your freezer a black hole?
Recently, a package of round steak was found hanging out in the bottom of my freezer. It was still safe to eat but had a little bit of freezer burn. Just slightly past its prime. Evidently, it fell down the black hole in my freezer.
Round steak is not particularly good for a walk-in-the-door-and-eat-10-minutes later kind of menu. It’s more tender when cooked with moisture.
Consequently, I started thinking about soup in a slow cooker. The result is this tasty recipe for Steak and Mushroom Slow Cooker Soup. The recipe is my own but I was
The original idea originated with the prime rib soup at Harrigan’s restaurant (sadly, long gone in our area). It used to be one of my favorites on their menu along with New Orleans potatoes and Cheesy Yeast Rolls.
Notice I don’t use prime rib in this recipe because I don’t normally have such elegant leftovers. But round steak is very tasty, especially when cooked in a crock pot. Prime rib couldn’t stand cooking all day anyway.
If you make this and enjoy the recipe, it would help me and others if you would return to this post and leave a rating (on the recipe card itself underneath the picture). Although always appreciated, no comment is required. Thanks so much! Paula
