This is a delicious crock pot meal. I've made it a couple of times, and it's low in points, and very hearty and filling on a cold day.

How to Make Steak With Merlot & Mushrooms


  1. Spray oven broiler rack with PAM. Preheat broiler.
  2. Mix salt, thyme, pepper, and garlic powder in cup. Rub seasoning mixture all over steak. Transfer steak to broiler rack. Broil steak 5" from heat until lightly browned, about 5 minutes per side.
  3. Scatter onion in bottom of 5- or 6-quart slow cooker Top with steak. Whisk broth, wine, and tomato paste in medium bowl until smooth. Pour broth mixture over steak. Cover and cook until steak and onion are fork-tender, 4 - 6 hours on high, or 6 - 8 hours on low.
  4. About 35 mins. before cooking time is complete, heat olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle with flour and cook, stirring constantly, about 1 minute. Stir mushroom mixture into slow cooker. Cover and cook on high, until mixture simmers and thickens, about 25 minutes.
