    Effortless cooking!


    • Yesterday I took one out of the freezer to thaw it for today. By 4:30 this morning (remember – I have to be at the babies house so mom can catch her ride to the terminal – she’s a school bus aide) I had the steak rinsed, patted dry, in the crockpot with Kosher salt, fresh cracked black pepper, garlic, parsley, and a bit of onion powder. I sliced up a beautiful onion – one of those that would be perfect for a large bloomin’ onion – turned the crockpot on HIGH and ran out the door.
    • When I got home after 9:00 I turned the steak over – it was about half cooked. Fine by me. We needed to have our big meal at noon today.
    • So I made a basic 3-Bean Salad:
    • 1 can (15 oz.) yellow wax beans, drained
    • 1 can (15 oz.) green beans, drained
    • 1 can (15 oz.) light red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
    • Dressing:
    • Dissolve:
    • 1/3 cup sugar, in
    • 1/3 cup vinegar (I used white today – cider is okay to use as well)
    • Stirring in:
    • Salt and Pepper, to taste
    • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
    • Add:
    • ¼ cup olive oil – mix well.
    • Pour over beans; mix well, cover and refrigerate until ready to eat.
    • By 11:30 I was peeling my potatoes to make mashed potatoes and starting my gravy. I tried to turn the steak and it just fell apart! Excellent!


    1. Really a no-fuss meal – filling – and the steak was fork-tender and just melted in our mouths.
    2. Add a slice of French bread – I’m a happy camper!
