I promised myself that after coming back from vacation I would try to use up a lot of the food that was piling up in my freezer. I had some round steak and found this recipe from Southern Food. It cooks in the crock pot which makes it super easy and the only work required is dicing an onion and measuring spices. Everything else comes from a can. It was really good. The soup gave it a little creaminess and the kick from the green chilies was really good. The meat turned out so tender! The only change I would make next time is to just leave the round steak in serving portions. I think it would make a nicer presentation and cubing it just wasn't necessary. We had this over mashed potatoes but you could also use rice. This recipe can be easily adapted. I think pork chops would taste just as delicious and if you don't like spicy food you could just use regular diced tomatoes.
Round Steak With Black Beans
1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies 10 oz. or 1 1/2 cups salsa
1 10 1/2 oz can cream of mushroom soup
1 16 oz. can black beans, drained
1 large onion, diced
1/4 tsp. each cumin, chili powder, oregano, and garlic powder
1 1/2 -2 lbs. round steak (you can either cube this or just leave in normal portion sizes)
Preparation: Combine all ingredients in the crock pot. (I did the sauce first and then added the meat last). Mix well. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or 4 to 5 hours on high. Serve over hot rice or mashed potatoes. Makes 4-6 servings.
