2 lbs. chuck steak or London broil – 1” thick, cut into bite size pieces
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 can Italian peeled tomatoes
1 t. oregano
Pepper and garlic powder to taste
2 T. olive oil
2 T. wine vinegar
In crock pot arrange meat; cover with onion soup and tomatoes. Sprinkle with oregano, garlic powder, pepper, oil and vinegar. Cook on high about six hours. Serve over bow tie pasta. Serves 4-6 people.
The original recipe said to cook it in a covered skillet for about one and a half hours until the meat is tender, but I always make it in the crock pot.
You can double the recipe!
From whence it came: Once again we have a fabulous recipe, thanks to my fabulous friend, Kerinda VanWagoner. I asked her if I could post this yum-e recipe on my little blog and she said yes, as long as I said something "nice and gushy" about her. She is really high maintenance! But a deal's a deal so here we go. Kerinda has the voice of an angel. If you've never had the privilege of hearing her sing, I am really sorry. You're missing out on some serious goose bumps! I've been fortunate to hear her sing on many occasions and I can say that she's never pitchy. Simon, Randy, Ellen and Kara would love her! If only she weren't so old, she could be the next American Idol. Hey Kerinda, good news, Simon's new show, The X Factor, has no age limit. You could be the next Susan Boyle! (I think I may have just veered away from the "nice and gushy" requirement. I guess I should admit that Kerinda is younger than me. She's not all that old. Just a little bit!) Thanks for sharing your Steak San Marcos Recipe with us, Kerinda. I'll make it for the celebration dinner we throw when you win The X Factor! (Was that "nice and gushy" enough?) Trust me, she'll make a comment and let us know.
Why it's blogable: This is one of my favorite things to make for dinner. I like to make it for Sunday dinner because it just cooks away while we are at church. Quite often I assemble it in the crock pot on Saturday, pop it in the fridge, then just plug it in on Sunday before we leave for church. When we come home the house smells amazing! This recipe is delicious and you can make it more nutritions by using whole grain pasta. I love whole grain pasta! And I love it even more when it's covered with Steak San Marcos!
Hope you enjoy stirring it up!
