2 pounds lean ground beef 1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix 12 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs 14 cup milk 14 cup all-purpose flour 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup 1 (1 ounce) packet dry au jus mix 34 cup water
In a large bowl، mix together the ground beef، onion soup mix، bread crumbs، and milk using your hands. Shape into 8 patties. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Dredge the patties in flour just to coat، and quickly brown on both sides in the hot skillet. Place browned patties into the slow cooker stacking alternately like a pyramid. In a medium bowl، mix together the cream of chicken soup، au jus mix، and water. Pour over the meat. Cook on the Low setting for 4 or 5 hours، until ground beef is well done.
