Got the crock pot sprayed with a little cooking spray, added in the meat. Sprinkle on the au jus and the beefy French onion soup mixes. Pour in 1 1/2 cups water and the cream of chicken soup. Set it to 8 hours on low and you are off. Now I know this doesn’t look like it will be so magically good, but just trust me 🙂
About 30 minutes before you want to serve take about 1/4 cup of the juice out and add 3 tablespoons of corn starch and mix until smooth. Pour back into crock pot, stir it around, and cook 30 minutes on high. This will thicken the juices and make the most flavorful gravy.
Now get ready to take a bite!! What did ya think? MMMM… GOOD right???
