Servings 6 servings
- 3 lbs top sirloin cubed
- 3 tbsp vegetable oil divided
- 2 cups low-sodium beef broth
- 2 tbsps Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup white onion diced
- 1 tsp Lawry's seasoning salt divided
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp thyme dried
- 1-2 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 bay leaf
- fresh ground black pepper to taste
- 3 tbsp water
- 2 tbsp corn starch
Season beef cubes on all sides with the seasoning salt and black pepper. Heat 1½ tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over MEDIUM-HIGH heat. Once the oil is hot, add half the beef cubes and stir and cook just long enough to sear the beef without cooking it through. Use a slotted spoon to transfer beef to the slow cooker. Add the remaining oil to pan and repeat with remaining beef cubes.
Add the beef broth and Worcestershire sauce to the slow cooker and then sprinkle the beef with the Italian seasoning and thyme. Sprinkle the diced onions and garlic over the top.Tuck a bay leaf into the mixture on the side.
*Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 7 hours or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours, or until beef is fork tender.
Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl and then add the mixture to slow cooker. Stir until sauce has thickened, and then cook on LOW for an additional 10 minutes. Remove bay leaf and serve over white rice.
*Slow cooker times are always approximate and vary with each model.
Try serving over mashed potatoes or noodles, too.
