Crockpot French Onion Beef



1 1/4 lbs boneless beef round steak, cut into 6 pieces*
8 oz package fresh sliced mushrooms
1 cup onion, sliced and separated into rings
10 3/4 oz can french onion soup
6 1/4 oz pkg herb-flavored stuffing mix*
1/4 cup butter, melted*
8 oz pkg shredded mozzarella cheese*

Layer half of beef, mushrooms and onions in a slow cooker; repeat layers. Pour soup over top; cover and cook on low setting for 8-10 hours. Shortly before serving, toss stuffing mix with its seasoning packet, melted butter and 1/2 cup liquid from the slow cooker. Spread stuffing mixture on top of beef. Increase to high setting; cover and cook for 10 minutes, or until stuffing is fluffy. Sprinkle with cheese; cover and heat until cheese is melted. Serves 4 to 6.

*My notes: We found the round steak to not have enough connective tissue for this long of a time in a slow cooker. I am going to try a chuck roast next time. My crockpot runs very hot. I also made the stuffing on the stovetop (instead of the crockpot) but did use the liquid as suggested. I did not use the cheese.
