Round Steak

The Eaters Write

Trish Hooper sends this easy recipe for round steak in her slow cooker. I am always impressed by our members’ cooking skills. Check this out, and notice the subtleties (toss with flour; roasted red peppers; pepper jelly).

“JVF Round Steak, cut into 1/4 slices, sautéed after toss with flour and Creole seasoning, browned. Into crockpot with sliced onions , roasted red peppers, garlic powder, thyme, onion & pepper jelly, 2 cups + hen broth. Cook 10 hrs. slow cooker. Tender, succulent and yum.”

I would add that you could change cooking time to less than an hour with the same recipe in a pressure cooker. But slow cookers are a blessing and perfect for overnight cooking for the next day’s dinner.

Two New Cuts

A few of you will find 2 new cuts in your coolers this month. We have tried them and plan to make more in future months. Here they are and what to do with them.

  • Tenderized Round Steak: These are huge cuts, so you may want to cut them into smaller steak size pieces, then fry them or smother in onions and cook slowly for a smothered steak.
  • Pork Stew Meat: Think pork stew here - braise or cook in your slow cooker with potatoes, bell pepper, carrots, onion and garlic. Makes a great stew.
  • Sausages by the link: You will find 2 packages of sausage in your cooler. If one is unlabeled, that will be the Jalapeno/cheese sausage. A reminder that while our fresh sausages do not contain nitrates, the butcher shop often puts that warning label on the package because that is the only label it has to satisfy State labeling requirements.
