This steak and mushroom pie is an easy way to jazz up your holiday menu. I used the help of my slow cooker to free up my time so I could focus on other holiday tasks, like the roomful of gifts that still need wrapping, appetizers that still need prepping, and cookies that still need baking.

Honestly, the slow cooker is where it’s at this holiday season. Set it and forget it!

Since this time of year is so special, I went with a sirloin tip roast for this recipe. I like to spoil my peeps during the holiday season. If you can’t find a sirloin tip roast, you can use a chuck roast.
