  • 1 1/2 pounds stew meat or sirloin tips
  • 1 medium onion cut in rings
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons olive oil or cooking oil
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 10.5 ounce cans beef broth
  • 1 package onion soup mix
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch optional


  • Heat oil in skillet and brown onions. Remove onions and put in crock pot. In a bowl whisk together the flour, salt, garlic powder and black pepper. Dredge the meat in the flour mixture and cook in skillet where you browned the onions until browned.
  • Add meat to crock pot. If you have flour left in the bowl from dredging the meat leave it in the bowl and add the 2 cans of beef broth, 1 package of onion soup mix, 1/2 cup water, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and whisk all together. Pour over meat and onions in the crock pot
  • Cook on low for 6 to 7 hours or high for 4 to 5 hours. If you want the gravy to be thicker, remove a 1/2 cup gravy and whisk in 1 tablespoon cornstarch and add back to the crock pot. Cook on high for 10 to 15 minutes longer. Makes about 8 servings.
