This great whether you have a hunk of beef or beef stew to use. You can literally put the frozen meat and ingredients in the crock pot in the morning and DO NOTHING and it's ready for dinner. You can use venison too.
Adjust ingredients to fit your family size:
2 lbs stew beef or a 2 lb solid roast frozen
1/2 c flour
1 can coke or ginger ale
1 pack brown gravy mix
1 pack onion soup mix
2 lb baby carrots (optional)
1 lg onion sliced (optional)
6-12 oz mushrooms (optional)
Place flour soda and gravy and onion soup mix in crock pot and whisk together to remove any lumps. Add rest of ingredients (I put in the meat first, and add any veggies I want on top). Cover and cook on LOW all day.
