Successful Together: Manwich Steaks and Crockpot Carrots

Manwich Steaks and Crockpot Carrots

I decided today needed to be a crockpot day. Had better things to do than stand around and watch food cook :)

Manwich Steaks: 4 servings
1 lb beef round steaks ( I am ghetto and had 1 pack .5 lb cube steak and 1 pack .5 lb steak, so I used both)
**after discussing with Ed, he said he much preferred the cube steak to the regular round steak!**
1 can beef broth
1 can manwich sauce
1/2 can of mushrooms (totally optional!)

In a 6 qt crockpot (or smaller if you have and want to use it and your steaks will fit. Mine were frozen so not able to be mushed around!) Layer Steaks. Put one layer down, cover with about 1/2 of the can of manwich sauce, top with other steaks and top them with the rest of the can. Around the edges of the meat, pour the can of beef broth in. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, 1 tablespoon onion powder & mushrooms.
Cook on low heat for about 4.5-5 hours or until meat is tender.

1 steak = 7 PointsPlus

Crockpot Carrots: 6-8 servings
2 lbs baby carrots
1 1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla

Put carrots in crock pot ( I used my smaller one) with other ingredients. Stir and cook on low until they are tender. I let mine cook for about 4.5-5 hours but I really think the could have cooked a bit longer. Next time I cook them, I think I will slice them first.

1 PointsPlus per serving (just the sugar really!)


10 PointsPlus for all of this (adding an additional 2 PP for the instant potatoes ;) ) ! I used some of the "sauce" left in the bottom of the crock as a dipping sauce for the steak and gravy for the potatoes.

Served on my saucer-plate. The carrots would be
giants if this was a full sized plate :)
