Tasty Tuesday

Here's to another Yummy Tasty Tuesday! I changed things up a bit today. I went for a slow cooker recipe, since we are all on the go and this makes things SO MUCH EASIER! This recipe is from bettycrocker.com.


Slow Cooker Swiss Steak Supper

Prep Time: 15 min
Total Time: 8 hours 15 min
Makes: 6 servings

Ingredients:
1 1/2pounds beef boneless round steak
1/2teaspoon peppered seasoned salt
6to 8 new potatoes, cut into fourths
1 1/2cups baby-cut carrots
1medium onion, sliced
2cups Progresso® diced tomatoes with Italian herbs (from 28-oz can), undrained
1jar (12 ounces) beef gravy

Chopped fresh parsley, if desired



1.) Cut beef into 6 serving pieces. Spray 12-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Sprinkle beef with seasoned salt. Cook in skillet 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, until brown.


2.) Layer potatoes, carrots, beef and onion in 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Mix tomatoes and gravy; spoon over mixture in slow cooker.


3.) Cover and cook on low heat setting 7 to 8 hours or until beef and vegetables are tender. Sprinkle with parsley.

(Note: This recipe was tested in slow cookers with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base. For slow cookers with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer’s directions for layering ingredients and choosing a temperature.)

Health Twist
Leaving the peel on the potatoes not only retains nutrients but also helps potatoes keep their shape. Just scrub and cut as directed.

Substitution
Peppered seasoned salt is one of the newest varieties of seasoned salt available in the supermarket. If you can't find it, use regular seasoned salt and sprinkle the beef with pepper, or you can just use salt and pepper.
