Food for Friday 9-16-11 Steak in a CrockPot

Ok, you all know I like fast, easy recipes. It doesn't get much easier than this. I found this recipe online and I'm sorry, but I don't remember which recipe site it came from.

STEAK IN A CROCK POT

1 pkg. round steak
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1-2 tbsp. garlic salt
Black pepper to taste

Cut steak into serving size pieces. Layer meat and soup in crock pot. Add garlic salt, and pepper. Cook on high for 2 to 3 hours and then on low for 3 to 4 hours or cook all day on low. Stir occasionally or meat on top will dry out. When done, meat is extremely tender, falling apart in the gravy. Serve over rice or mashed potatoes.

I did do some tweaking to the recipe when I made it for dinner last night. I used some sirloin steaks that we had in the freezer since who knows when. They were given to us by our neighbor when they last butchered one of their cows. I opted for cooking them on high for 2 hours and then on low for 4 hours.

Instead of garlic salt, I used 2 tablespoons of minced garlic from a jar of pre-minced garlic. According to the jar 1/2 tsp = 1 clove of garlic. So I guess I used what amounts to about 12 cloves of garlic. LOL! I also sliced up 1 onion and laid the rings on top of the steak. I also used a table seasoning blend along with the black pepper.

The steak was extremely tender and moist, it was good. I did not serve it over mashed potatoes, but along side of them. :)

Have a wonderful day,
