Simmering Steak: Get Ready
Cook by simmering (or braising), on the stove top, or in the oven or slow cooker.
- SEASON steak. In hot lightly oiled skillet, brown all over.
- ADD sliced vegetables (such as onion, sweet green pepper and garlic) if desired. Add enough liquid (such as canned soup or tomatoes, broth or red wine) to just cover the beef.
- SIMMER, covered, in 325°F (160°C) oven or on stove top approximately 1-1/4 hours or until tender. Serve with cooked rice, noodles or mashed potatoes.
SLOW-COOKER SIMMER: Season and brown Simmering Steak in skillet; place in slow cooker. Fry some sliced onion and minced garlic in the same skillet until lightly browned. Stir in a splash of red wine or broth, scraping up all the browned bits. Stir in half a can of condensed mushroom soup; pour over meat. Cover and slow-cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours.
