This beefy main dish is always a big hit with the men in our family. After simmering in a slow cooker, the steak takes on a robust taste, and the filling portions are just what we love. —Megan Rohlck, Vermillion, South Dakota

  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, sliced
  • 2 beef top round steaks (3/4 inch thick and 1 pound each)
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce


  1. Place the sweet potatoes, onion and green pepper in a 6-qt. slow cooker. Cut each steak into three serving-size pieces; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown steaks in oil in batches on both sides. Place steaks over vegetables, reserving drippings in pan.
  2. Add garlic to drippings; cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in flour until blended. Stir in the remaining ingredients and remaining salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 4-5 minutes or until thickened. Pour over meat. Cover and cook on low for 7-9 hours or until beef is tender.
