This dish was soooo good, I only got a taste of it when it came out of the crock pot, because my daughter claimed the rest of it! It always makes a mamma happy when your kids love what you make.
This was made in the crock pot, but it’s not exactly a dump and walk way recipe. You start out with the steak in the crock pot with the sauce
The sauce was soooo good, some garlic, soy & oyster sauce, with ginger, brown sugar and a little Sriracha sauce.
Then once that had cooked for a couple of hours I dumped a bag of frozen Chinese veggies on top, then the last half hour I took the steak out, sliced it and diced it (and this is why you can use a cheap piece of meat, slow cooked + dicing it small, it won’t be tough) put it back in the crock pot and stirred in some cooked noodles, and it came out amazing!
Place steak in the bottom of crock pot and in a small bowl combine garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, oyster sauce, ginger and Sriracha sauce. Pour over steak and cook on high for 2 hours, then add frozen veggies on top of the steak, cook for 1 1/2 hours, then remove steak and cut in small pieces(cheap steak works great for this because it’s cut up small so it being tender isn’t a problem) and stir steak and cooked pasta in the sauce and veggies. Save a little pasta water in case it’s dry, but I didn’t have that problem.
This dinner was so delicious, the beef fell apart and the carrots and potatoes were amazing! It’s super simple to do and it’s made in the crock pot, so it’s done when you walk in the door!
Roast Beef with veggies
Start with some onion slices in the bottom of the crock pot
put your beef in the crock pot and top with some more onion slices
make some gravy and pour over top the beef, set your crock pot for 8 hours, after 4 hours have gone by add some potatoes and carrot to the crock pot. Not cooking the potatoes and carrot the whole time, it keeps them from over cooking and lets them retain some texture. After 8 hours, pull everything out and if you want to thicken up the gravy some more, put the liquid from the crock pot in a small pan and shake together some flour and water, when the liquid boils and your flour mixture, and stir in.
1 3 to 4 lbs. roast(it doesn’t matter what kind it is, it will be tender after all the time in the crock pot)
1 medium onion, sliced
1/4 cup of butter
1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 cups beef broth
3 or 4 carrots, peeled, and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
5 or 6 potatoes, cut in 1/2 inch pieces
salt & pepper
In a sauce pan, melt butter, stir flour into melted butter and cook for 1 minute, then add broth, stirring the whole time to keep it from becoming lumpy. In the bottom of the crock pot, place some onion slices, put the roast in and top with the rest of the onions. Pour gravy over and set it on low for 8 hours. Salt and pepper. After 4 hours, add potatoes and carrots the crock pot. Cook for additional 4 hours. When it’s done cooking remove potatoes, carrots and beef from crock pot. If the gravy is thinner than you would like, add it to a sauce pan, and mix together equal parts water and flour, bring the liquid to a boil and add the flour mixture slowly, stirring the whole time. bring it back to a boil and it should be thickened.
The onions will just flavor the roast, you don’t really eat them to much and adding the potatoes and carrots later on lets them retain some texture and they don’t get too done.
This is an awesome recipe, that you can trash up a little by topping homemade fries with some Sloppy Joe or put it on half a whole wheat English muffin and serve with a salad.
I love that all the ingredients in this recipe are real, wholesome ingredient and no mystery can product. Start out by sauteing a little pepper, onions, add turkey and garlic and cook until turkey is done. Adding the turkey to the peppers and onion, really helps flavor the turkey and starts breaking down the veggies.
Then add everything to the crock pot, along with tomato sauce, brown sugar, ketchup, tomato paste, some bread you mash with whatever kind of milk you have(this helps keep the meat moist), hot sauce, and chili powder. Then just let it cook away in the crock pot. If you have anyone in your family with texture issues, this is great, because the onion and pepper just become a part of the sauce and the picky eaters won’t even know it’s in there!
They are great on top of some home made fries, or on top a bun or English muffin, which I always have.
2 TBSP. milk, whatever you have is fine, I used soy
In a large skillet add oil, peppers and onion, saute for 2 to 3 minutes, add turkey and mash up, cook through until turkey is no longer pink. Meanwhile, tear bread into tiny pieces and add milk, mash together with a fork. Add chili powder, tomato sauce, paste, ketchup, brown sugar and hot sauce to crock pot. Add bread mixture to turkey mixture, then add everything to crock pot. Stir everything together and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours.
