I made Round Steak with Herbs
Didn't deviate from the recipe too much. I did brown the meat in a hot skillet before I put it in the crock pot because I think it gives it more flavor and it holds together better. Doubled up on the oregano and thyme because it felt right. Since the skillet was there and hot I put the soup/seasoning combination in there and stirred it around a little to pick up all those little bits of flavoring from where I browned the meat. It seems like there is some fancy cooking term for those meat bits but I can't think of it.
The kids and the husband ate this without complaint. Everyone said that they liked it and would eat it again. I liked it too, but thought it was a little dry. I may have gotten over zealous in the meat browning step. Then again, I'm always my worse critic :)
