Units Scale

For the Beef Stew:

  • 1 small yellow onion, cut into wedges
  • 16 oz. carrots, peeled and cut into 3-4 inch pieces (approximately)
  • 8 oz. sliced baby bella mushrooms (sliced in half or quartered)
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 1/2 lbs. beef tri tips or beef stew meat (cut into 3-4 inch pieces)
  • 2 tsp. seasoning salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 10.5oz cans golden mushroom soup

For the Dumplings:

  • 2 cups bisquick or similar baking mix
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Prep ingredients:
    Peel and cut onion into wedges.
    Peel and cut carrots into 4-inch pieces.
    Clean and slice mushrooms.
    Smash garlic, but don’t chop.
    Cut beef roast into 3-4 inch pieces if necessary. Season all sides of the meat with seasoning salt and black pepper.
  2. Place onion, carrots, mushrooms and garlic into the bottom of the slow cooker.
  3. Top veggies with beef pieces and pour soup over the top to cover everything. Lightly stir.
  4. Cover and cook on Low for 7-9 hours, until beef is tender.
  5. A half hour before serving, mix together biscuits. In a medium bowl, stir together bisquick mix, garlic salt, milk, vegetable oil, and shredded cheese together until combined.
  6. Spoon dumplings (1/4 cup of mixture at a time) over the top of the stew, right into the slow cooker. Place the cover of the slow cooker back on and cook on High for 1/2 hour, until biscuits are set.
  7. Serve stew and biscuits in a bowl.


  • This recipe is very forgiving, so you can use beef stew meat or tri tips and both work wonderfully.
  • The golden mushroom soup creates a really delicious gravy for the stew and should be easy to find at most grocery stores. You can also order it here.
