I found this recipe stuck in my tattered recipe binder, jotted on a calendar page from 1998. I used to make it quite a bit, but somehow forgot about it. I’m glad that I found it again, because it’s really easy and good.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 3 carrots, peeled and diced
- onion, diced
- small green pepper, diced
- 2 stalks celery, diced (I didn’t have celery, so I left it out)
- 2 lb. round steak
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1 Tbs. vinegar
- 1/3 cup water
- salt and pepper
- 2 Tbs. flour
- 1/2 cup water
Place the meat in the crockpot. Put the diced veggies on top. Mix the ketchup, vinegar, water and salt and pepper together. Pour over the meat and veggies. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 5-6 hours.
Remove the meat from the slow cooker. Turn it up to high. Mix the flour and 1/2 cup water together in a container with a tight-fitting lid. Shake it to combine until smooth. Whisk into the broth in the slow cooker and let it cook just a few minutes until it’s thickened a bit.
Thanksgiving is tomorrow. What are your plans? Are you cooking? Getting together with friends and family? Planning out your Black Friday shopping strategy?
We’ll be getting together with family over the weekend. Thanksgiving Day will involve a log on the fire, homemade soup (2 Thanksgiving dinners to come on the weekend) and decorating for Christmas.
