Round Two - What's Cookin', Good Lookin'

Thursday, January 31, 2013

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 :)

    I don't know how it tasted but it surely doesn't look dry! Browning does that to beef steak, especially if it has hidden fat fibers which tend to alter their shape in high temperatures. I've read that if you beat them slightly, they become more tender - because those fibers are broken down.
    Anyway, your dish looks delicious! And I really liked the oregano-thyme combination which is my favorite for pork but I think I'll try it with beef, too!

    I don't think there's a fancy name for them, I call them meat bits too! If you poured liquid in to get them all up it would be deglazing, but even in recipes I see them called meat bits :)
