Slow Cooking Thursday




Welcome to my weekly Crockpot Recipes Exchance. It's such a great way to share your favorite dishes or to learn some new ones to make for your family.
What do you think??? Do You have some great recipes to share, or perhaps you're looking for some delicious ones to give you a reason to pull out the ol' crockpot???
Time to pull out those crockpots and put them to good use. If you want to join in, just grab the banner and add your name to Mr Linky :)

Today's recipe is for what I have in my crockpot right now. Smothered Steaks....how good does THAT sound huh???

I've made them before using the traditional way, but you can make them in the slow cooker too and since I'm tired and don't want to deal with dinner later, THAT'S the way I'm going.



SMOTHERED STEAK
Serves: 4


2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 eye-of-round steaks (about 4 ounces each), all visible fat discarded
2 teaspoons canola or corn oil
8 ounces sliced button mushrooms
1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 cup fat-free, no-salt-added beef broth
2 tablespoons imitation bacon bits
2 teaspoons soy sauce (lowest sodium available)
1 teaspoon molasses
1 cup frozen green beans

In a shallow bowl or plate, stir together the flour and pepper. Coat the steaks on both sides with the mixture, shaking off the excess.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil and swirl to coat the bottom. Cook the steaks for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until browned. Transfer to a plate.

In the same skillet, cook the mushrooms and onion for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the onion is tender-crisp, scraping to dislodge any browned bits and stirring occasionally.

Put the steaks and onions and mushrooms and remaining ingredients except the green beans in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours, adding the green beans for the last hour of cooking, or on high for 2 to 3 hours, adding the green beans for the last 30 minutes of cooking.

ENJOY!!!

Here we go with the blogger comment issues again.....

Yay me! I got a recipe posted!

Here's my recipe for old fashioned pot roast. Your smothered steaks sound wonderful. All these recipes sound wonderful but I really have my eye on that hot German potato salad.

Hope you got more rest last night, Sandra. And I really hope you stayed dry. :-)
