Slow Cooker Southwest Round Steak and Potatoes

If you want an easy dish to prepare with round steak, this is the one for you.  It has that southwest twang to it that will make your guests or your family members go, what is that? Hmmm this is different but good not weird they might even add.

The steak comes out tender and tasty.  Having the potatoes cooked with the steak in the slow cooker cuts one more step.  I added green pepper but you can skip it. Complete hearty with rice and a green salad.

Slow Cooker Southwest Round Steak and Potatoes

Recipe inspired by the one from Taste of Home
  • 2 tsps balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch wedges
  • 1 1/2 lbs beef top round steak, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 green pepper, cut into strips (optional

Place all the ingredients EXCEPT the potatoes, beef and green pepper in the slow cooker and mix with a spoon.  Place the potatoes, the beef  and the green pepper if using on top of the sauce ingredients.  Cook at high for 3 hours or at low for 6 hours.  I cooked mine in an Aroma brand rice cooker/slow cooker for 2 hours at slow cooker setting.
