Braised Steak with Mushrooms and Onions

Sunday is my "crock pot" and meal prep day. A crock pot meal is an easy way to get a couple of meals for the weeks done with very little effort. Basically just cut some stuff up and throw it into the pot. So if you use the excuse of "I don't have time to meal prep". You need to get yourself a crock pot. Here is the recipie to this delicious and very comforting stew like dinner I made as a part of my meal prep this week. 


1 white onion, diced

8 ounces of mushrooms, sliced

4 cloves of garlic, minced

2 Tablespoons of olive oil

1 Teaspoon of brown sugar

1 TBS of dried Thyme

1/2 cup of beef broth

1 Tablespoon soy sauce

2 Teaspoons of instant tapioca pudding powder

2 8 ounce beef blade steaks


Place onion, mushrooms, garlic, thyme, brown sugar  and olive oil into a microwave safe bowl. mix thoroughly Microwave for 5 minutes. Transfer to the slow cooker. Stir in beef broth, tapioca powder and soy sauce. Season the steaks with salt and pepper and place into the slow cooker. Cover and cook 6-7 hours on low or 4-5 hours on high. 

After cooking, transfer steaks to a serving dish. Skim any fat off the top layer of the leftover broth. Spoon the leftover vegetable gravy/sauce into the serving tray with the steaks. Let steaks rest at least 5 minutes before serving. For you carbivores, serve over rice or noodles. For us low carbers, serve over steamed broccoli or veggie rice. Enjoy!
