  • I got a kick butt one from a lady on here. I changed it a little though. Buttered Beef. 2lbs beef stew meat / 1 can beef broth / 1 packet onion soup mix / 1 stick butter (cubed). Brown the beef in a skillet. Then put it in a crock pot with the beef broth, onion soup mix packet, and cubed butter. Mix it well. Then place the lid over it and let it cook on low for 6 hours. Take out some of the sauce when the six hours is up. Then make a roux (flour/ butter mix). Get the roux to a nutty brown color and add the sauce that you took out in slowly. Mix until smooth. Add it to the crock pot and stir it around. Place the lid back on and let it cook for another few minutes until the sauce is thick. Serve with either rice, wide egg noodles, or mashed potatoes. My family likes it with rice.
