Crock pot London broil...help!

Hi everyone. Just registered here today and I'm searching for a little recipe help. I used to make a beef stroganoff in my crockpot using London broil, a little flour, seasonings, cream of mushroom soup, onion soup mix, mushrooms and sour cream. Obviously, I can't do this anymore because the carbs are too high.

Does anyone have a similar but low-carb friendly recipe? It doesnt have to be a stroganoff recipe but rather london broil in the slow cooker. I really liked it because it took my cheap cut of meat and slow cooked it til very tender.

Thanks!

You can still do this, just use the Cream of Mushroom and Chicken soup - it's lower carbs than the straight mushroom, don't ask me why! Sour cream is OK too. Instead of the onion soup mix, I'd use a diced up small onion and a teaspoon or two of beef stock paste or a crushed beef bouillon cube.

Don't worry about flouring the beef. Cube it up and brown it if you want, or not. It'll be good either way - the browning adds a bit more flavor.

Here is a link to tons of LC crockpot recipes:

Thanks for the welcome and the ideas. You don't happen to know the carbs in the cream of mushroom/chicken soup by any chance?

1/2 cup has 7 grams carbs and 4 fiber for 3 net carbs.

Oh that's not bad at all. I'll probably only consume about 1/4 of a can myself. Thanks for the crock pot link too!

Progresso makes a cream of mushroom soup, 8 grams of carb per cup, subtracting one gram of fiber.I like it better than the Campbells. I brown a whole chicken in a dutch oven and when just about done,add one cup of the soup and extra sauteed mushrooms and some tarragon and let it cook another 10 minutes or so. I'm making it tonight.

For myself london broil is quite lean to do well with long cooking in a crock pot, it turns into something like sawdust, not to mention the price per pound is much higher than other cuts that would be more fatty like chuck unless there's a great sale. London broil does better with quick cooking like sliced thin for a stir fry or stroganoff or broiled whole rare or medium.

Glad you liked it! I have a london broil in the crockpot right now, it was on sale. I use it for chile verde. This time I am trying it with chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. You are right , Char, 5 of those suckers would put my crockpot on fire!
