First, the night before. . .
make a batch (best, or make ahead and freeze), of homemade condensed cream of mushroom soup.
Brown 1 lb. of organic/grass fed beef in a skillet. Salt and pepper it.
While the meat is browning, peel and slice 6 medium organic (or homegrown) potatoes, placing them into a bowl with 1 cup water and 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar.
In another bowl, combine 1 onion diced, 1/2 cup mild cheddar cheese, 1/4 flour, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. black pepper.
Drain the meat, and place in the bottom of a crock pot. Drain the potatoes. Then top the meat with layers of potatoes. Sprinkle the top of that with the cheese/onion mixture. Slice up 2 Tbsp or organic butter and dot the top.
Spread the homemade condensed mushroom soup over top of everything.
Cook in the crock pot for about 7-8 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high. Sprinkle the top with 1/2 cup mild cheddar cheese about 1/2 hour prior to serving.
