Beef & Mushroom Hearty Soup

I love making this soup.  It's easy.  I can put it together pretty quickly in the morning and it's ready for lunch or dinner.

Beef & Mushroom Hearty Soup

For a small crock pot

2 cups Water
1/2 tsp Sage
1 heaping spoonful Beef Bouillon
1/3 White Onion
7 Whole Crimini Mushrooms
3/4 lb Stew Beef
1 can Campbell's Cream of Mushroom

1. In a small crock pot, add in your water, sage, and beef bouillon.  Turn your crock pot to high.
2. Dice up your white onion.  Have a large frying pan ready on high heat with some oil.  Place your onions into the pan and start cooking them until they begin to turn a golden color (caramelizing them).  Once that starts, add these to your crock pot.
3. Slice up your mushrooms and add them to the crock pot.
4. Turn the heat on the frying pan to medium-high and place your stew beef into the pan.  All you want to do is sear the meat - basically cook it for about 2 minutes or until the outside changes color.  Toss the meat into the crock pot.   Done with the stove.
5. Empty your can of soup mix over everything in the crock pot.
6. Your soup will be ready to eat in 4 hours, but you can let it sit there all day in the crock pot if you want.  It will be fine and your meat will just come out more tender.
