After growing up in West Texas for 30 years where barbecue is the best, I found this recipe which is so tender and absolutely delicious. Leftovers, if you have any, make really great sandwiches. You can increase the liquid smoke to 4 tablespoons for really smoky flavor.
- 2 pounds beef stew meat
- 2 (10.75 ounce) cans cream of mushroom soup
- 1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
- 1 onion, minced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 (8 ounce) package sliced cremini mushrooms
- 1 cup ginger ale
Place beef in a slow cooker. Stir cream of mushroom soup, dry onion soup mix, onion, garlic, cremini mushrooms, and ginger ale in a bowl until thoroughly combined and pour the mixture over the beef.
Cover, set slow cooker to High, and cook for 1 hour; turn cooker down to Low and cook for 5 more hours.
