Ingredients

  • 1 Cup onion, chopped and refrigerated
  • cooking spray
  • 1 Pound boneless top round steak, trimmed
  • One 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano, undrained
  • 1/2 Cup light beer
  • 2 Tablespoons molasses
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt

Directions

Place the onion in a 3 to 3¼ quart slow cooker coated with the cooking spray.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and coat the pan with cooking spray. Add the steak and cook until well browned on each side, about 3 minutes. Place the steak over the onion in the slowcooker and pour the tomatoes and beer over steak. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or until the steak is very tender.

Shred steak with two forks in slow cooker, and stir in the molasses and salt. Let the steak stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Beef Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Beef Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
