It is the stressful time of the year. With the rush of the holidays, I like to throw dinner in the crock-pot and come back hours later to a great no fuss dinner. I just throw some noodles into boiling water and we are eating in about 20 minutes. A tossed salad and some fresh fruit we have a full dinner. I hope with all the shopping and stress of the holidays this recipe helps a bit.
Slow Cooker Swiss Steak with Mushrooms
Serves 6 to 8
1 ½ pounds of round steak
1 can diced tomatoes, 14 ½ oz.
1 Cup diced onion
10 oz. can of beef broth
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 carrot sliced into coins
½ green bell pepper, diced (Optional)
8 ounces sliced mushrooms
½ teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
¼ cup cornstarch
½ cup water
Mashed potatoes or hot cooked noodles
Cut the steak into serving pieces and pound the steak a bit to tenderized. Combine tomatoes, onion, beef stock, Worcestershire sauce, carrots, bell pepper, mushrooms, pepper and garlic powder in a slow cooker. Stir to combine, add the raw steak. Cook on low for 8 hours, or on high for 6 hours. When ready to serve, combine the cornstarch and water and there are no lumps. Remove the steak to a serving platter, cover with foil. Stir in the cornstarch mixture to the broth and heat on high until thickened. Taste and adjust seasoning. Pour sauce over the steak and serve over the mashed potatoes or noodles.
