Did you know that Pinterest can be addictive?  Yes, I am joking, kind of, since I don’t spend a ton of time on there.  If I ever do starting browsing, I can be there for hours if I would let myself.  This recipe is a Pinterest “find” from My Sweet Mission and it was a huge success.

To me, Sundays are perfect for slow cooker main dishes and this made a great addition to my repertoire.  I highly recommend it.

Slow Cooker Southern Steaks

2 lbs. top round steaks, cut into 3 or 4 inch pieces

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pepper

2 tbsp. olive oil

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. onion powder

3 cups beef broth

1/4 cup all purpose flour


Sprinkle the steaks with salt and pepper.  Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add the olive oil.  Add half of the steak pieces to the hot skillet and brown on each side.  Place the first batch in your slow cooker and brown the last batch.  Place those in the slow cooker after they are browned.



Pour 2 cups of the beef broth into the hot pan.  Reduce heat to medium.  In a separate bowl, combine the remaining 1 cup of broth, flour, garlic powder, and onion powder.  Whisk until the flour is dissolved.



Add the flour mixture slowly to the hot pan.  Stir constantly until the broth thickens into a gravy.  Pour this over the steaks in the slow cooker.  Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 to 8 hours.  Steaks are done when fork tender.
