Crockpot Steak Soup




















Crockpot Steak Soup
3 C. water
3 small chopped onions
3 stalks celery, chopped
2 carrots, sliced
1 lb. can diced tomatoes
1 tsp. pepper
10 oz. frozen mixed vegetables
1 lb. sirloin steak, cubed (I used lean beef stew meat)
2 to 4 T. beef bouillon granules
1/2 C. butter
1/2 C. flour

Put all ingredients, except the butter and flour, in a crockpot.  Cook on low 8 to 10 hours.  Make a roux of butter and flour stirring until smooth.  Add to the soup to thicken.  Turn the crockpot to high and cook an additional 1 1/2 hours. 

Here it is in the crockpot cooking on low (before the roux) -

















Now, cooking with the roux on high -

















This steak soup is great comfort food.  Serve it with bread and it will warm you up!!


















I have not been up to much here and still putting away Christmas and, therefore, did not get much of my Valentine's out.  I did do my tree, a banner (that I saw on a blog), put out my heart drinking glasses & mugs, and both doors had decorations.  A medium size tote did not get touched.  But, I will do better!!!







































I did go out with my gal friends (we call ourselves the YaYa's!!) for dinner this weekend and I made us all Lips on a Stick that I saw on a few blogs.

















Lucy & Ricky would rather be sleeping than helping motivate me to get the Christmas out and the house cleaned.  I'm afraid they motivated me the wrong way - if you know what I mean??
