Slow Cooker Beef

I need some new ideas for beef roasts in the slow cooker. Usually I make a beef stew, roast beef, chili, or swiss steak. I want something new. Anyone got ideas? I was thinking of something with mushrooms, maybe using condensed mushroom soup?

you can do a mushroom casserole type dish.


Usuall i put 2 cans mushroom soup, and 1.5 can of water[or milk], a cup and a half of pasta[i like elbow noodles because the kids eat them more].
and about half a lb ground beef[i boil it before hand and drain the grease]
2 cups of fresh mushrooms, ive used canned in a pinch.

i put it on low for the afternoon [3-5 hours]or untill the pasta is tender.


its a very kids friendly food, wich in my house goes over really well

Mmm...Sounds good. Do you think that cubed beef roast would work too? Maybe for me cook the noodles separate, put the rest in with cubed beef and cook all day on low to its fall apart, and put over noodles?

I love curry so I frequently put the cubed beef with vegetables in the crockpot with those Japanese-style hot curry cubes. When I get off work, I just put rice on and serve the curry over rice with condiments such as shredded coconut, raisins, chopped peanuts, chutney. The idea is a contrast of flavors - hot, sweet, salty, tangy, etc. Works great with chicken too. Hubby loves it when I slip in some hard-boiled eggs cut in half at the last few minutes. Curry - you either love it or hate it - no in-between!

I'm not too much of a curry fan. I love mexican though. I have yet to find a good supplier of mexican ingredients where I live. I want to get some good chili powder, masa or masa harina, smoke chilies, etc. I bet where you are glasslass you can get all kinds of mexican food.
