Here is a easy recipe that takes regular ground beef and packs it full of delicious flavor. Throw all the ingredients into your Slow Cooker and let it do all the work for you. It also makes a wonderful gravy that will be great served with some mashed potatoes.
2 pounds lean ground beef
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup milk 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
1 packet dry gravy mix
3/4 cup water
1-2 packages of fresh sliced mushrooms
In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, onion soup mix, bread crumbs, and milk using your hands. Shape into 8 patties.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Dredge the patties in flour just to coat, and quickly brown on both sides in the hot skillet. Place browned patties into the slow cooker stacking alternately like a pyramid.
Add the cream of chicken soup, gravy mix, and water in a bowl and stir well. Pour over the meat. Cook on the Low setting for 4 or 5 hours, until ground beef is well done.
The final step is to saute the mushrooms with butter in a frying pan until softened, and add to the slow cooker. Do not add until the very end, as if they cook too long in the slow cooker they will overcook and become soggy.
Serve with mashed potatoes and enjoy!
