    Prep: 15 min. Cook: 8 hours
  • Makes
    2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 boneless beef chuck steak (3/4 inch thick and 3/4 pound)
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1/4 cup beef broth
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine or additional beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water

Directions

  • In a large skillet, brown beef in oil on both sides. Transfer to a 1-1/2-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the broth, tomato sauce, wine, onion, garlic, parsley, rosemary, salt and pepper; pour over beef. Cover and cook on low until meat is tender, about 8 hours.
  • Remove beef and keep warm. In a small saucepan, combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir in cooking juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. Serve with beef.
Test Kitchen tip: Mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli with lemon butter make this a hearty meal for two. Also, leftovers are so tender and tasty, you just might want to double this recipe to serve over noodles or in sandwiches the next day.

    This is a quick and easy meal that's perfect for my little slow cooker. (It cooks little hot, so mine was perfect when I checked it at 5 hours.) I used a pound of flank steak, and it was beautifully tender, with a flavorful gravy. I was short on time, so I didn't brown the meat, and it was just fine.
