There are few dishes easier than this one, with prep about 2 minutes before it goes into the slow cooker to be ready for dinner!
- 1 Tbsp flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp pepper
- 3/4 lb beef top round steak
- 1/2 medium onion, sliced
- 1/3 C chopped celery
- 1 can (8oz) tomato sauce
2. Spray slow cooker insert with nonstick spray. Place onion inside, layer with beef, celery, and tomato sauce. Cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or until meat is tender.
Robyn's notes: this cooked the meat through nicely and smelled fabulous, but wasn't hugely exciting. That was partly because I wasn't really in the mood for beef, so I have to be fair and mention it. I served it over rice. If desired, giving a quick sear to the meat in a skillet before putting it in the slow cooker would add some depth of flavor. Watch me demonstrate this recipe and talk a little about slow cookers generally on youtube!
*** 3 Stars: Good. At least one of us liked this enough for me to make it again, but not often
