Slow Cooker Butter Beef

This recipe has 5 ingredients and can be put together in less than 5 minutes!  

Then it cooks all day in your slow cooker, coming out tender and delicious!

I love having this beef over quinoa (I think it really complements the flavor) or, for a little change, over barley.

This recipe calls for onion soup mix, but no worries if you don’t have any on hand.  You can also whip up your own homemade onion soup mix.

VEGGIES: This meat tastes great with sauteed garlic asparagus, sauteed mushrooms and/or cauliflower rice.
