Saturday smells like... Creamy Beef Stew

Last Sunday after we got back from Nashville, J went grocery shopping while I worked at Williams-Sonoma.  The week before he commented that our fridge looked like a bachelor fridge so you can only imagine how it looked after another week with no grocery shopping!  I came home to a packed fridge and the best meal cooking in the slow cooker.  In fact, while we did not actually eat it Sunday night (taste-tested, yes, but no actual 'eating'), we ended up probably six or seven meals between the two of us from this one pot of yummy goodness.  So of course I wanted to share it with you!

Creamy Beef Stew

Top Round Roast
Carton of V8 Southwest Corn Soup
Packet of dried Onion Soup Mix
Can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
Can of Cream of Tomato Soup
Orange Juice (a half cup or so--"about what you'd think")
Cup of Cream
Package of Egg Noodles
Red Pepper Flakes
A couple squeezes of Sriracha sauce

Place the beef (one large piece) in your slow cooker and pour everything else inside.  J turned ours on the ten-hour setting and left it overnight.  The following morning, he pulled out the beef, which basically fell apart while cooking, and made sure that it had all come apart in even pieces.  We periodically stirred it together.

I served mine (pictured) with a sprinkling of mozzarella cheese on top.  Incredibly easy, and makes a ton of food!!
