Gord likes to cook and found "Down Home Smothered Steak" in it and made it for supper this evening.
I've copied and pasted it from Gord's blog.
Using a 3 1/2 quart crock pot, you'll need:
- 2 tbsp (30 ml) of clarified butter (he used olive oil)
- 2 lbs (1 kg) round steak
- 1 onion, sliced thinly
- 3 stalks of celery
- 1/2 tsp (2 ml) sea salt
- 1/2 tsp (2 ml) cracked peppercorns
- 2 cups (500 ml) beef stock
- 2 green bell peppers cut into thin strips
Trim any the fat off the outside of the steak. Heat some oil in a medium high heat pan. Add meat and brown on both sides, then place in crockpot.
Reduce heat to medium, adding a little more oil to the pan. Add onion and celery and cook while stirring for about 5 minutes to soften. Add salt and cracked peppercorns. Stir this in (Note: green pepper is not added here. It will be added 8 hours later).
Add beef stock and bring to a boil, then pour this over the meat in the crockpot.
Cover and cook on low for eight hours.
After eight hours, add the sliced green pepper, cover and cook on high for 20 minutes.
Serve piping hot.
We had it with rice. It looked and smelled like it would be tasty but it was bland. No offense to Gord but this wasn't one of my favourites.
