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 med yellow onion, sliced thin
1 (2-lb) round steak, 3/4-inch thick
2 tbsp cooking oil
1 cup beef broth 
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp pepper
2 tbsp cold water
1 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp cornstarch
3 medium tomatoes, peeled & cut into wedges
Hot cooked buttered noodles for 6 servings
Fresh snipped parsley or rosemary sprig for garnish, if desired
Separate the onion slices into rings and place in the crockpot or slowcooker. Trim any excess fat from the round steak and cut into strips approximately 2-inches long x 1/2-inch wide. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet and brown the steak in the hot oil; drain.
Stir the meat into the cooker along with the the beef broth, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, rosemary, salt, paprika, and pepper. Cover cooker and cook on the low setting for 8 to 10 hours. Turn cooker to high setting and skim off the fat from the broth. Blend the cold water into the cornstarch and stir into the hot mixture, along with the soy sauce. Replace the lid and cook until bubbly, about 15 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and cook another 5 minutes.
To serve, place the beef-tomato mixture over the hot buttered noodles. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
