Slow cooker Beef Boogie Woogie

This delicious beef stew has an odd name. In a slow cooker, chopped beef, carrots, and mushrooms cook. A cooking sauce comprised of the cream of mushroom soup and dried onion soup aids in tenderizing and seasoning the meat during the cooking process. This stew recipe can be served with egg noodles or mashed potatoes.

Did you know? Americans consume approximately 65 pounds of beef per year, which is a lot, but this is significantly less than the 95 pounds per year we finished in 1980 due to healthier eating habits.


Serving Size : 4
  • 10 3/4 ounces cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1 packet beefy onion soup mix (Lipton)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 pounds stew beef
  • 8 ounces fresh mushrooms — sliced
  • 8 ounces baby carrots


  1. Mix sauce ingredients in slow cooker.
  2. Add meat, carrots, and mushrooms, and stir.
  3. Cook on high 4 hours and low 4 hours. Or just low for about 8 to 10 hours.

Slow cooker Beef Boogie Woogie - FAQs

You should always brown ground beef or any ground meat in a skillet before adding it to your slow cooker to prevent the meat from clumping up or from adding excess grease to your cooked dish

Yes. It’s usually recommended browning the outside of the beef first, but it’s perfectly safe to add raw beef directly to your slow cooker.

Without searing, meat dishes can taste flat and boring. Admittedly, searing isn’t strictly necessary for the cooking process. Technically speaking. The meat will cook just fine without searing.

Browning is the process of partially cooking the surface of meat to develop its flavor through various browning reactions and give it a more attractive color.

There is no need to cover the meat in liquid when cooking with a slow cooker, you only need enough liquid to cover the base of the slow cooker as the meat and vegetables will release liquid as they cook.

Place your meat on the bottom of the slow cooker, so it’s closest to the heat source. Add your other ingredients and liquids, then set your cooker to “low.” Plan for 6-9 hours of cooking time. This long, slow braise breaks down the connective tissue and fat, creating deliciously soft and juicy meat.

Slow cookers are specially designed to cook food for long periods of time, but yes, you can still overcook in a slow cooker if something is left on the wrong setting for longer than it’s supposed to be.
