Savory Stewed Beef

1 can condensed beef broth (10.5 oz.)
1 can condensed French Onion Soup (10.5 oz.)
1 can mushrooms, drained (6 oz.)
1 to 2 lbs. eye of round or other lean beef
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp. Cajun or Creole seasoning, or other seasoning blend
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper

1 to 2 tbsp. olive oil
2 cups coarsely chopped onions
3 cups cubed potatoes, about 3 medium
1/2 cup wine, red or blush (or use beef broth or apple juice)

Put broth and soup in a crockpot; add mushrooms, onions, and potatoes. Turn crockpot on LOW while browning beef. Cut beef in 1/2-inch cubes. Combine flour, seasoning, salt, and pepper in a food storage bag; put beef in bag and toss thoroughly to coat well.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add beef ; brown stirring frequently, for 10 to 20 minutes, or until beef is browned on all sides. Transfer beef to crockpot. Add 1/2 cup red or blush wine to the hot skillet. Put back over medium heat and simmer, stirring to loosen browned bits, until wine is reduced to a few tablespoons. Cover and cook on LOW heat for 8 to 10 hours.
