I used to make this when I had my little café in AZ. Back then I baked it in the oven, so now I have adapted the recipe for the crockpot and it is so good. I think of it as comfort food, as I certainly feel comforted when I eat it. I hope you like it as well as my family does.

    I used a crock pot liner for this, sure saves a lot of cleanup later. Pour some sauce in bottom of pot, follow with some steak, add onions on top of steak, then a generous covering of the soup mixture. Continue layering till ingredients are gone.

    Cook on high for 5 hours, then add the quartered potatoes and turn on low for another 2 1/2 hours. Push the potatoes down so they are all covered, you may have to add a little water if sauce becomes too thick. Hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

    The sauce makes a wonderful gravy over the potatoes.
