If you are looking for an easy beef and potato recipe, this is for you! Your family will love this dinner and they don’t have to know how easy it was to make!

It’s a true dump-and-go recipe, adding all of the ingredients to your slow cooker at once and turning it on. So simple!

What you’ll need

  • A crock pot– 6 to 8 quart size
  • Stew meat, cut into pieces. I like to buy it pre-cut, but a roast works too! Just cut it into 1-2″ inch cubes. The beef is fall apart tender at the end.
  • Onion soup mix packet– the dry mix, such as Lipton Onion Soup Mix
  • Butter– for richness! This helps to make the sauce.
  • Seasonings– grated garlic and pepper. I don’t use additional salt in this because the onion soup mix contains sodium already. Feel free to add any other seasonings you like.
  • Potatoes– cut into chunks. Any potato works! Skin on or off, totally up to you.
This delicious weeknight meal is made with beef and potatoes in an onion and butter sauce slow cooked until the beef is juicy and the potatoes are tender. A perfect family meal any day of the week.

How to make it

Just dump everything in and go!

First, spray your slow cooker with nonstick spray or use a crock pot liner. Add in the beef, potatoes, garlic, pepper, and onion soup mix. Give it a good stir.

Place the sliced butter on top. Cover and Cook low and slow- about 6 to 7 hours is perfect.

  1. Add a diced onion for a more onion-y flavor.
  2. If you’d like to add a vegetable, pour in a bag or two of frozen broccoli in the crock pot the last 30 minutes of cooking. Or serve a veggie or salad on the side.
  3. Add in carrots at the beginning of the cooking process, if you love carrots. Carrots take longer to cook than most other vegetables, so it’s best to add early in the cooking process to ensure they are soft.
  4. You can substitute a roast, cut in to 1-2″ chunks, or steak tips for this recipe.

No need to sear the meat! Cooking the beef low and slow makes it fall apart tender and juicy.

No need to add any liquid! The butter along with the cooking juices is enough.

  1. I’m cooking this recipe now. I doubled the recipe and there’s no moisture in the crock. Idk what to do except put water or beef broth into it, now. It’s not through cooking either. The potatoes are still firm.

    1. Hi Wendy, this recipe doesn’t require any liquid. There’s a lot of factors that would lead to the potatoes not being cooked through though, happy to help you troubleshoot! The potatoes should be diced to bite size to ensure they cook through. The total cook time is 7 hours on low, which should be plenty of time to cook potatoes. Make sure you don’t lift the lid during cooking, every time you lift the crock pot lid you lose cooking time. Hope that helps!
