My sister, Amy, sent me this recipe years ago. I had forgotten all about it until this week. It is so incredibly fast and easy to throw together and tasty too. The original recipe calls for Lipton Onion Soup Mix, but that's full of stuff your body doesn't need, so I've tweaked the recipe using herbs and spices from my pantry.
2 lbs chuck steak (I used tenderized round steak)
2 tbsp coconut oil
8 tsp dried onion flakes
1 tsp onion powder
4 tsp beef base (I like to use Organic Better than Boullion b/c it doesn't have MSG or hfcs)
1/4 tsp celery salt
1 tsp dried oregano
1 (14 oz) can Italian diced tomatoes
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar or Balsamic vinegar
Heat the oil in a dutch oven over medium heat. Add the steaks. Sprinkle with seasonings. Pour tomatoes over the top. Sprinkle remaining ingredients over the tomatoes. Cover and simmer for 1 1/2 hours.
Serve with brown rice or mashed potatoes!
