I know it's smack dab in the middle of summer. However, soup is still my go to staple this time of year (or any time of year for that matter). I love soup, stew, bisque...it all sings to my soul. It's the mac and cheese to my heart. The peanut butter to my jelly. The whipped cream to my cocoa.
Okay, I'm getting carried away. But, I really do love a bowl of soup-y goodness. I also love melt in your mouth steak. So, I got busy in the kitchen and made Steak Gumbo. I'm not really sure what inspired that combo other than I wanted these two culinary treats that would make our tummy's sing for joy. The best part is that it got the husband stamp of approval!
It's a super easy recipe that could be doubled for freezer meals -or- like in our case, used for lunch the next day. I love a good bowl of leftover goodness.
Anyway, here's the recipe if you are so inclined....
Crock Pot Steak Gumbo
1 lb. Steak Tips (Stew Cut)
4 Cups of Gumbo Vegetables (can be found in the freezer section)
16 oz. Diced Tomatoes
16 oz. Tomato Sauce
16 oz. Chicken Broth
1/2 Teaspoon Creole Sesoning
1/2 Teaspoon Onion Seasoning
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Salt
Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper (to taste)
Shredded Cheese (for garnish)
In a large skillet, lightly brown meat for 2-3 minutes or until all sides are seared. Add to crock pot. Then add diced tomatoes (including juice) on top of the meat. Add tomato sauce, gumbo veggies, chicken broth, then seasonings. Set crock pot on highest setting for 4 to 5 hours. Garnish with cheese, and enjoy!
