Slow Cooker Steak Chili

I have this cooking for dinner right now!

Slow-Cooker Steak Chili

2 T. oil
2 lbs. beef round steak, cut into 1-inch cubes
1-1/2 c. onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1-1/3 c. water, divided
1 c. celery, chopped
2 15-oz. cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed
2 14-1/2 oz. cans diced tomatoes
16-oz. jar salsa
15-oz. can tomato sauce
1-1/2 T. chili powder
1 t. ground cumin
1 t. dried oregano
1/2 t. pepper
2 T. all-purpose flour
2 T. cornmeal
Garnish: diced tomatoes, sour cream, crushed tortilla chips or shredded Cheddar cheese




Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat; add steak, onion and garlic. Cook over medium heat until steak is browned and onion and garlic are translucent. With a slotted spoon, remove steak, onion and garlic to a slow cooker, leaving juices behind in pan. Add one cup water, celery, beans, tomatoes with juice, salsa, tomato sauce and seasonings to slow cooker; stir. Cover and cook on low setting for 8 hours. Shortly before serving time, whisk together flour, cornmeal and remaining 1/3 cup water until smooth. Add mixture to simmering chili; stir for 2 minutes, until thickened. Garnish as desired. Serves 8.

Sandy, this came out really good, will definatelymake it again, I didnt add the cumin to it (didnt have any in the house) and I didnt have any cornmeal to thicken it towards the end of the cooking time so I just threw in a handful of instant(sour cream and chive) potato flakes to thicken it!! Its delicious with a dallop of sour cream on the top!!Hugs Sandie

Hi Sandie, I don't much like Cumin anyway so I won't use it either. And as for using the seasoned potato flakes I will use that instead of the cornmeal too because to me using the cornmeal would'nt have much of a flavor to it.
I would've never thought to use potato flakes.

Actually using the potatoe flakes came about by accident for me, , I was trying to thicken some gravy one time and didnt want to use more flour because it would take away the flavor of the gravy, and I was trying to think what I had to thicken it lol.Next time I make this Im gonna drop some dumplings on the top of it.

This was good. It has a different taste/flavor. Something different and I would make again.
