There are many crockpot recipes for round steak but this one will taste just like the round steak that your mom use to make. You will need:
- 1 ½ pounds of round steak,
- 4 tablespoons of flour, a little vegetable oil,
- ½ beef broth, and
- 1 cup of carrots diced,
- 1 teaspoon of sugar, and
- a pinch of salt.
To prepare: cut the steak into pieces, and brown in skillet, season with the salt and pepper. Now, place the steak in the crockpot.
Combine the beef broth, carrots, sugar, and thyme and pour over the steak. Cover and cook 8 hours. To make a wonderful gravy to go with this steak, use ¾ cup of the liquid from the crockpot, add the liquid to a skillet with 2 tablespoons of flour stir consistently until the mixture thickens. As the liquid thickens you can add more water or milk until you have enough gravy to feed your family. If you use milk, it will no longer be brown gravy but will be more like cream gravy.
