Sweeper Steak

Sweeper Steak (gluten-free) | The Baking Beauties


With the warm weather approaching, I wanted to use up any stewing beef I had in my freezer. Since I don’t make much stew in summer, and didn’t want it sitting there until fall, I looked for a recipe that used the stewing beef cut, but wasn’t stew. This Sweeper Steak is a simple, quick recipe that fit the bill! Plus, the fact that it was cooked in the slow cooker, meant that I could spend time outside while it was inside baking & getting nice and tender. Perfect!

Sweeper Steak
  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • 1 1/2 lbs beef stew meat, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 (10.75 ounce) cans gluten-free cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1 (1 ounce) envelope dry gluten-free onion soup mix
  • 1 cup gluten-free beef broth
  1. Grease the crock pot bowl with the sesame oil.
  2. Place the beef, cream of mushroom soup, soup mix and beef broth into the prepared slow-cooker and stir to blend.
  3. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours, or until meat is tender.
  4. Serve this over rice, noodles or mashed potatoes. There is plenty of sauce to be used as gravy.

    Looks good to me, Jeanine!

    I make something very similar called Beef Louise: Mix together 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 envelope onion soup mix, and 1 cup red wine. Pour over stew beef, cover tightly, and bake for 3 hours at 300º. Easy and perfect on a chilly night served over noodles. (I imagine 3 hours on high in a slow cooker would work too…)

    I hope the warmth finds you all soon. We keep bouncing back and forth between sunny and hot and rainy and cold. But anything’s better than snow!

    Take care, my friend!

    Hi Jeanine,
    Which dry onion soup mix you use that is gluten free? It is not the Knorr onion soup mix, is it?

    It is common courtesy to credit the inspiration for a recipe. I would expect credit to myself and AllRecipes for the original version of “Sweeper Steak”. You have only made minor modifications and represent that this is your own creation. Very disappointing.

      Sorry, Dan, if you had looked through my other recipes, I usually include an ‘inspired by’, ‘adapted from’, or outright ‘Source: site’. This was merely an oversight, not intentional. When recipes come from allrecipes.com I do not credit the author, merely the site. Credit has been given, thank you for pointing that out.
