Cooking Sherry is about $4.00 for 16 ounces, but you can substitute Apple Cider Vinegar or Table White Wine. Use what you have on hand.[br]I use arrowroot powder for less carbohydrates. It costs about $1.00 for 4 ounces.[br]You can substitute whole milk, or even heavy cream. Just use what you have.

I can’t believe how much I still have to learn about cooking.

This rich, beefy Slow Cooker Swiss Steak is comfort food that is slowly simmered for a fork-tender and a great budget friendly meal.When it comes to beef, I always want to reach for the tender cuts.  I am that crazy lady at the grocery store who is always in the way of someone else.  Why?  Because I take too long to make a decision in the meat section of the market.

I get confused, easily apparently.  Depending on what part of the country you live, certain cuts of meat are called something different.

That’s what happened when I was trying to decide on a piece of round steak.  I ended up with this London Broil.

The cow’s entire hind leg (which includes the butt, ham, and thigh) is known as the beef round. Round roasts, steaks and the London broil all come from this area, as do sirloin tip roast and sirloin tip center steak.  Marinating before cooking helps tenderize round cuts of beef.

This is why the London Broil is the perfect cut to use in a slow cooker.
