For the steak and onions:2 pounds chuck steak
2 cups beef broth
2 tablespoons onion gravy mix
1 tablespoon beef bouillon powder
1 clove of garlic, minced
4 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons barbecue sauce
3 onions, quartered
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
Flour and oil
For the dumplings:
1 cup self-rising flour
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons milk
1 egg
1. Dice the chuck steak into small cubes and lightly coat them with seasoned all-purpose flour. Brown the coated steak in a frying pan using a small amount of oil. This is for maximum flavor
2. In a separate pan, melt butter. Add onions and minced garlic. Cook until the onions become transparent.
3. In the slow cooker, combine the beef stock, beef bouillon powder, Italian seasoning, sauces, and 1 tablespoon of plain flour. Add the browned meat, cooked onions, and garlic.
4. Cover and cook on high heat for 5 hours. Towards the end of the cooking time, add 1 tablespoon of brown onion gravy powder to achieve your desired gravy consistency, depending on how thick you prefer it.
5. For the dumplings: When there are 45 minutes remaining, begin preparing the dumplings. In a bowl, combine self-rising flour and rub in 1 tablespoon of butter. Add milk and beaten egg. Mix the ingredients together using a fork. Then, knead the dough with your hands for a couple of minutes. Shape the dough into small balls, rolling them in your hands to create ~1 inch in circumference. Submerge the dough balls into the slow cooker, placing them under the gravy. Continue cooking for about 30 to 40 minutes.
