"This was my favorite growing up. I was amazed when I was older and asked my mom for the recipe how EASY it is! A small amount of prep. time, a day in the slow cooker, and you'll be amazed! It sounds too simple to be good... TRUST me! This gets RAVE reviews when we make it! The amount of vegetables is only an estimate. Use as many or as few as you choose. When it's done, you will have a yummy gravy, and will have to carefully dig for the steak pieces." — azdadof5

Outstanding! I was very surprised on how much liquid "sweated" out of the veggies. 2 cups of flour for 2 lbs. of steak? - way too much. Will try 3/4 cup next time. I used 2 large green and 2 large red peppers and 3 medium-sized onions. Also took part of another reviewers suggestion and used Italian Style Stewed Tomatoes instead of crushed. The other suggestion about adding 2 beef broth cubes was a winner too. This FILLED my 4.5 quart slow cooker to the brim! When all was tender . . . served over egg noodles. WOW! Will be trying again with sliced roast. Thanks for the recipe :-)
This was a tasty dish, but not one of my favorites.
This is my recipe, so I won't be pompass and rave about it here! I just wanted to mention, the paprika was just a slight suggestion in my submitte drecipe. I typically use a lot of seasonings in the flour... Mrs. Dash, lemon pepper, garlis salt, etc. have fun with it! Also, The longer it's cooked in the slow cooker, the better - for GOOD steakes 8 hours is the minimum! Also - it should read 2-3 onions and 2-3 peppers - the more the better! Enjoy!
My mom made the same but with some "modifications". Instead of using the veggies, use the "italian style" type stewed tomatoes. It already has the bell peppers and the onions in it along with some other spices. Using these tomatoes takes either the bitterness or sweetness you get from using regular canned crushed tomatoes (they are always different). Also add some extra garlic and serve over egg noodles
Oh WOW! This is going to be a favorite in this house! It tasted so good and hearty...a perfect winter dish! I served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes (also from this site). I used stew meat and it came out so tender it was falling off my fork! I also added 2 beef broth cubes and I obmitted the red pepper. Another reviewer commented it was a sloppy mess, it is kinda sloppy as the meat is so tender that it breaks up and it is kinda like a stew. But it tasted so good I didn't mind, for leftovers the next day I piled it on top of a slice of bread, YUMMY!
My husband loved this. I only made a couple changes...I didn't have the veggies in the recipe so I used mushrooms instead. It was fantastic. Every bit was eaten up, even by my 19 month old daughter, who is very picky.
.too many canned tomatoes....use pounded round steak.....dredge in flour....brown well and set aside, add a small amt of oil to pan,saute onions and mix in enough flour to make a nice roux..cook for a couple of mins.add 2 cans of diced tomatoes at most and thin with water or beef broth...season to taste, return beef to pan and simmer until tender...sauce is killer on baked potatoes!Try it.
I had a 2 lb round steak that I was needing to cook, so I scaled this back a bit, eliminated the green pepper (hubby hates it) and baked it in the oven for 2.5 hours. We sliced it thin and it was delicious.
