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.

3 lb round steak, trim off fat
1/3 cup white whole-wheat or garbanzo bean flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp basil
1 garlic clove, minced
3 tbsp coconut or olive oil
1 large yellow onion, sliced
1 large green bell pepper, sliced lengthwise
1 can salt-free stewed tomatoes

Cut steak into 6 to 8 serving-size pieces; sprinkle with the basil, salt and pepper; dredge through the flour.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat and brown the meat on both sides. Transfer meat to at least a 4-quart size slow cooker.

In the same skillet, brown the onion, garlic, and bell pepper; add the tomatoes and bring to a boil. Pour tomato mixture over the steak in the cooker. Add enough water to cover the steak.

Place lid on cooker and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or until meat is tender.
