Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

1 (1 1/2 lb) beef round steak, 3/4-inch thick
2 tbsp cooking oil
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
2 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp prepared mustard
2 tsp prepared horseradish
1 garlic clove, minced
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cup water
2/3 cup cold water
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
hot cooked noodles for 6 servings

Trim the excess fat from the meat and cut meat into cubes. Heat the oil in a skillet and brown the cubed meat on all sides; drain. Transfer the meat to the cooker. Stir in the tomato sauce, onion, vinegar, mustard, horseradish, garlic, salt, pepper, and 1 cup of water. Add the lid to the cooker, set cooker on low setting and cook for 8 to 10 hours.

Turn setting to high. Blend the cold water with the flour until smooth. Gradually stir the mixture into the meat mixture. Cook until thickened, stirring occasionally.

Serve over the hot noodles.

Yield: 6 servings
