Slow Cooker Beef Dijon is a delicious way to spruce up a round steak dinner! Tenderize an other wise tough cut of beef. into a melt in your mouth, juicy, beefy dinner! This Low-Carb, Low-Sodium, Low-Sugar, Gluten-Free meal is easy and delicious!
Slow cooking is a great way to tenderize a tough, inexpensive cut of beef. What I’m doing today is recreating a recipe and adapting it for the slow cooker. I found this recipe in a Grey poupon Dijon mustard box. A REALLY Great recipe that calls for fillet mignon. That’s not happening at my house unless we are having a very special occasion, and maybe not then!
I’m a low budget cook. I come from a long line of down home cooks who learned how to stretch food dollars. Buying a high class piece of beef….let’s not. I bought a four pack of 6 oz. round steaks instead and after they were put through a slow cooker, viola! they are amazingly tender, juicy and delicious! If you have an expensive palate I invite you to go high class on your meats. Just keep it in the skillet on medium until it’s done and follow the directions to make the sauce. The sauce is the BEST part of this meal! The tangy creamy mustard sauce is so good on beef!
In the pictures you will notice, if you look closely, that white fluffy stuff is NOT rice, or potatoes. It’s riced cauliflower! I just learned how to make riced cauliflower and I will be posting more recipes that include it soon. Cauliflower is an amazingly versatile vegetable. It makes a perfect side to this meal. Add a green salad and you have a scrumptious, low-carb meal.
