Asian-Style Round Steak Recipe

Marilyn Wolfe has long relied on this hearty dish, chock-full of veggies, to fill her family in Des Moines, Iowa. “My friend gave me the recipe two decades ago,” she says, “and all I added was a little more meat, the celery and mushrooms.”

"Very good recipe! Great taste. I didn't make this in the slow cooker but on top of the stove and it still came out great. Would definitely make again."

"Excellent recipe! Steak is so tender and full of flavor. I could not find canned bean sprouts in my store, so used canned mixed asian vegetables (with sprouts). Used an orange bell pepper. Will definitely make again."

"Even though this is a slow cooker recipe, we found the multiple steps a bit time-consuming. Plus, it definitely needs more crunch to be great stir fry."

"I love this recipe! I like extra vegetables, so I add an extra can of bean sprouts and mushrooms (sometimes oriental vegetable can)."
