My hot weather "fancy" meal go to meal is steak in mushroom sauce. Super easy, (and cool with a crock pot), round steak (trimmed to portion size) one can cream of mushroom soup, undilluted, one can of Golden Mushroom soup, undiluted, and a can of sliced mushrooms, undrained. I like to mix the two soups and the mushrooms together and spread a little on the bottom of the crock pot, put in the steaks and add the rest of the soup mix. Cover and cook on low for about 6-8 hours. (Or do the same thing in a casserole and bake for about an hour at 350*. Better and more tender in a crock pot). Serve with mashed potatoes or noodles to take advantage of the delish gravy.
I have been known to serve any leftover gravy with meatballs simmered in it at another meal.
