First time I made it, I deviated more from the original recipe. I did the onion soup packet thing. I did the can of mushrooms thing. I used golden mushroom soup instead of the cream of mushroom (that's what I had on hand). Then added the veggies. People really liked it, but didn't go crazy over it.
Second time around, I seemed to stick more to the recipe. Seasoned with Montreal Steak Seasoning, garlic salt, and pepper. Threw in two cans of cream of mushroom soup and half a box of beef broth. Added carrots and onions. A couple hours later added potatoes. A half hour before serving, I measured out a 1/2 cup of the gravy broth and whisked in a couple tbsp. of flour, then stirred that back into the crock pot. THIS TIME, my husband went nuts. He had three servings. He looked at me with sheer joy and worship in his eyes. Isn't that what every spouse wants? And it wasn't even hard to make!!!!
