Beef, It's What's for Dinner

For the longest time, we avoided beef. With all the hype about how "beef isn't good for you" and how you should minimize your beef intake, we shied away. Now, with the discovery of local, "organic" beef, and new studies about how beef actually is good
for you, we've started eating it again on a regular basis.
I purchased beef at a local supermarket (they cut the roast to my specifications) and I decided on a recipe for Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast. The recipe calls for adding two cans of condensed cream of mushroom soup and a package of dry onion soup mix.
To be honest, if I am sticking with a healthier approach to beef, I would skip the packaged, processed soup mixes and add my own fresh ingredients (real onion, mushrooms, and garlic, with a dash of salt and pepper).
The beef was tender and delicious, but I couldn't help but wish I used less of the processed ingredients and more of the natural ingredients.
Overall, this was a good meal (and my family enjoyed it). And the beef, cooked according to the recipe (in a crock pot), was tender and delicious.
I will definitely make beef again (at least once a week), but I would make sure I stuck to my more natural approach of cooking.
