Crockpot London Broil

As you have no doubt noticed lately, Grenville and Beatrice (that’s us) have been on the road a lot the past few weeks with more holiday travel to come. In between trips and decorating, we’ve been planning easy dinners as much as possible.
This week, there was a London Broil way back in the freezer. It somehow “escaped” being grilled in the fall, and never made it outdoors – it went into the crock pot this week. What an easy recipe with just a few added ingredients – OK maybe more than a few.  Feel free to alter the ingredients to suit your spice preferences. OPTIONAL items (found in several recipes) include a can of tomato soup or a small can of diced tomatoes in juice.
Once everything is in the crock pot, go do something else all day. Serve with your choice of veggie sides.

6. Combine cream of mushroom soup, dry onion soup mix, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and beef broth. Pour over meat.

Yum! That sounds delicious! I haven't made anything in the crock pot lately. I may have to give this a try. Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog. Nice to meet you! :)

It all looks wonderful! Your recipe looks so organized! Thanks for sharing. I just look into the fridge and if it seems it'll work, it goes in the crock pot. Well, maybe a little more organized than that, but you have the idea.

We have crock pot food often, too, and had it tonight. Ours was steak cut in bite size pieces, carrots, celery, potatoes, tomato sauce and crushed tomatoes, garlic, and other spices. It all produced a yummy gravy. It was a good thing I didn't have to cook dinner because our son called and asked me to pick up kids at different schools this afternoon/evening. Everything seems to work out. :)

Hi Everyone - this was delicious and we had enough for a couple of extra dinners this, including a version of beef stroganoff.

Welcome Daisy, thanks for the visit and comment. The crock pot is wonderful if only I can remember we have a couple (large and small) and use it more often. Best time is now with cooler temps. Come back anytime and I will do the same at your place>

Lois, I like your take on crock pot cooking - out of the fridge and into the pot! I think we have more freezer food that may end up as dinner this way soon. Your recipe sounds wonderful and we already have all those ingredients so next week I'll give yours a try. THANKS!

Hi Mona (Wsprsweetly of Cottages) - thanks for the comment on our recipes. We enjoy cooking and regre t sometimes not having time to post tings we try out as we won't post something we haven't tried first, Maybe we will also start a rating system (now if we could only find more of that time, expecially now). Yes, we will psot a photo of our holiday tree and the outside decorations as soon as Grenvilee is done. By the way, we have another follower also named Mona who has a wonderful blog called Montanagirl with wonderful nature shots:

Steve, yes this dinner was filling and enough for several meals, which is a good thing these days. I've cooked chicken in the crock pot, but need to try some different recipes soon.

Hi Ginny, next time we will just have to let you know in advance - and there are STILL some leftovers if you can make it before dinner time on Friday!

Grammie G, you would be welcome to feast here anytime and we could also become piggies but made sure we served in the kitchen and then brought our plates to the table and this way we won't overeat all at once. And it was even better as leftovers!
