Round steak turns out moist and tender when cooked in a tasty tomato sauce all day long! Tortellini is the finishing touch.
pounds beef boneless round steak
teaspoon seasoned salt
medium onion, sliced
jar (26 ounces) tomato pasta sauce (any variety)
package (9 ounces) refrigerated cheese-filled tortellini
medium zucchini, cut lengthwise in half, then cut crosswise into slices (about 1 cup)
Cut beef into 6 serving-size pieces; sprinkle with seasoned salt and pepper. Layer beef and onion in 3- to 4-quart slow cooker. Pour pasta sauce over top.
Cover and cook on Low heat setting 8 to 9 hours.
About 20 minutes before serving, stir in tortellini and zucchini. Increase heat setting to High. Cover and cook 15 to 20 minutes or until tortellini are tender.
You can use yellow summer squash instead of the zucchini.
Cut the beef into pieces of same size so that it cooks to the same doneness and tenderness.
Fresh-baked soft breadsticks and Caesar salad in a bag carry out the Italian theme of this meal.
