Steak and Mushroom Slow Cooker Soup

I put this together one day last week and wondered why I wasn't smelling it cooking.  I knew I had turned the crockpot on to Low......One must PLUG the crockpot IN to get it to work.  Luckily I caught it just an hour after I put the ingredients in.  I cooked the soup on high for about 2 and 1/2 hours and then turned it down to low until 6 .  Perfect and tasted great.
Steak and Mushroom Slow Cooker Soup

2 slices bacon
1-2 pounds round steak, cut in 1-inch cubes
1 cup frozen chopped onions
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
5 cups water
1 tablespoon beef bouillon concentrate
1 tablespoon Kitchen Bouquet
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 bay leaf
Freshly ground black pepper
1 cup plain Greek yogurt or sour cream

Fry bacon. Remove from pan, crumble and place in crock pot.

Saute steak in remaining bacon grease over high heat until browned. Do this in small batches so skillet doesn't cool down. Place browned steak in crock pot.

Saute onions and mushrooms in pan. Add to crock pot.

Add water, bouillon, Kitchen Bouquet, soy sauce, bay leaf and black pepper to crock pot and stir.
Cook on LOW for 8-10 hours.

Remove about 1 cup broth from soup and whisk yogurt or sour cream into it unto smooth. Add back to crock pot and stir. Remove bay leaf before serving.
***Beth added 1 T cornstarch to 2 T water mixture to slightly thicken.
