  1. Mix the flour and garlic powder together.
  2. Pat the meat dry and season with salt and pepper. Dredge the meat into the flour mixture to coat.
  3. In a large cast-irons skillet, heat 2 tbsp olive oil. Brown the meat deeply for about 3-4 minutes on each side; crust should form. Remove from heat.
  4. Now, place the browned meat in the bottom of a large crock pot. Add the remaining ingredients except the mushrooms. Stir with a wooden spoon.
  5. Cover the crock pot and cook on high for 4 1/2 hours. Add the sliced mushrooms. Cover and cook for another 30 minutes or so.
  6. Enjoy with your favorite Italian bread or even homemade challah!
