Slow Cooker Round Steak with Vegetable Gravy

This recipe reminds me so much of my grandmother's beloved pot roast recipe...except this dish is a lot more simple to make. I love yummy slow cooker recipes on busy weeknights, and this one was great!

Slow Cooker Round Steak with Vegetable Gravy
From: the Eat At Home blog

3 carrots, peeled and diced
onion, diced
small green pepper, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 lb. round steak
1/2 cup ketchup
1 Tbs. vinegar
1/3 cup water
salt and pepper
2 Tbs. flour
1/2 cup water

Place the meat in the crockpot. Put the diced veggies on top. Mix the ketchup, vinegar, water and salt and pepper together. Pour over the meat and veggies. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 5-6 hours.

Remove the meat from the slow cooker. Turn it up to high. Mix the flour and 1/2 cup water together in a container with a tight-fitting lid. Shake it to combine until smooth. Whisk into the broth in the slow cooker and let it cook just a few minutes until it’s thickened a bit.

The Result:
I don't usually have round steak on hand, but maybe I will start stocking it for this recipe. This was such a homey and comforting recipe. I served some baked potatoes on the side with a salad and this was the perfect autumn meal.
