I had to go out of town again for the afternoon, so being short on time, I decided on another slow cooker recipe. This Slow Cooker Asian Style Round Steak Recipe reminded me a lot of Chop Suey so I decided to give it a try. There is not a lot of prep time with this recipe but you do have to have the time to pay attention at the end to finalize the recipe, by cooking the rice, adding the vegetables, and thickening the sauce which takes about an hour and a half. I really enjoyed this recipe; and because it is cooked in the slow cooker, the round steak is so tender it melts in your mouth.
The next time you’re in the mood for Asian food give this Slow Cooker Asian Style Round Steak Recipe a try. Enjoy
