Everyone was expected to leave some space for seconds whenever my grandmother made this.

Considering the steak and onions:2 kilos of chuck meat
Beef broth (two cups) and onion gravy mix (two teaspoons)
Soup mix for beef, measuring 1 tablespoon
One minced clove of garlic
1/4 cup of ketchup
Butter, 2 tablespoons
quarter cup of barbeque sauce
Three quarters of an onion
a tbsp of Italian chili pepper
Toss with salt and pepper.
Wheat and lard
Speaking of the dumplings:
One cup of flour that rises on its own
1/2 tbsp of butter
1/4 cup of milk
One egg
1. Coat the chuck steak lightly with seasoned all-purpose flour and cut it into tiny chunks. Use a little oil in a skillet to brown the coated steak. Let me tell you, this is all about taste explosion!
Begin by melting the butter in a separate pan. Toss in the minced garlic and onions. Make sure to cook the onions until they turn translucent.
3. Add the marinades, 1 tablespoon of plain flour, beef bouillon powder, Italian seasoning, and beef stock to the slow cooker. Stir in the sauces. Incorporate the browned beef, sautéed onions, and minced garlic.
Turn the heat up to high and cook, covered, for five hours. If you want a thicker sauce, add 1 tablespoon of brown onion gravy powder towards the end of the cooking time; the amount you use depends on your preference.
5. As for the puff pastry: Start making the dumplings when you have 45 minutes left. Mix together the self-rising flour and 1 tablespoon of butter in a bowl. Combine with milk and beaten egg. Combine all of the ingredients by whisking them together. After that, give the dough a couple of minutes of hand kneading. Roll the dough into little balls with your hands until they are about one inch in diameter. Put the dough balls in the slow cooker and cover them with gravy. Add another 30 to 40 minutes of cooking time.
