Beef Steaks in Onion-Mushroom Gravy (Crockpot)

This recipe is so easy and frugal since you can use cheap steaks, and it can be tossed in the crockpot to cook while you are busy!
Toss in chopped onions and mushrooms. (I used 2 medium onions and an 8oz package of mushrooms.)Toss in the beef steaks.

Sprinkle with fresh ground black pepper and a few shakes or marjoram or basil (or both).
Add a few shakes of Worcestershire sauce and some beef broth and enough water to cover.
Turn up the heat and go have some fun while the crock-ey does her work!
(About 6 hours on high.)

(Once cooked; blend one cup of milk with 1/4 cup of arrowroot or cornstarch and add to liquid and beef to thicken.)
Served here over whole wheat spaghetti noodles but I like them much better over egg noodles.

*Seen here with a side salad and white-sweet potatoes cooked in butter and molasses.

This looks very good to me, but I can't get my children to eat onion and mushrooms. I have been looking through your breakfast recipes and finding lots of great stuff that my family would enjoy. I have been looking for a pancake recipe for using up leftover oatmeal. I found one here, thanks so much for sharing it! Have a blessed day.

Do you have a little food processor? (They have one for like $9 at Walmart.) I used to chop everything in there, almost into a puree, before adding it to dishes like this, just to 'hide it' from a couple of picky eaters. If they didn't 'feel' it, they didn't 'taste' it! :-)

My real-super-duper picky eater will now eat sliced onions on his hamburgers and sandwiches! Yippee!
