Weight Watcher Wednesday - Slow-Cooked Sirloin

Can you say SPRING FEVER?? That is what this Farmchick has! :0) My seed catalogs have been arriving in the mail and whenever that happens I start dreaming of planting my garden and spending many hours in the warm sunshine. Silly of course...since I actually cannot plant my garden until the end of May! :) It's has been below zero here for days and my gardens are all covered with a thick blanket of snow! Hey..... a girl can dream right? ;)


beef top sirloin steak (1-1/2 pounds)
1 medium onion, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) fat free reduced-sodium beef broth
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon dill weed
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Dash crushed red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, brown beef on both sides. Place onion and green pepper in a 3-qt. slow cooker. Top with beef. Combine the broth, Worcestershire sauce, dill, thyme, pepper and pepper flakes; pour over beef. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or until meat reaches desired doneness and vegetables are crisp-tender.
Remove beef and keep warm. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; gradually stir into cooking juices. Cover and cook about 30 minutes longer or until slightly thickened. Return beef to the slow cooker; heat through. Yield: 6 servings.

5 points per serving---

Please leave me a comment so I know you were here and I can stop by your place for a visit! :)

We had top sirloin steak covered in peppercorn sauce. Few points also, but tasted great with rice, sugar.

Hey, got a question for you. May I use your wedding photo to post on my blog to show how gorgeous it is. I've always thought it was the most gorgeous wedding dress I've ever seen and I'd love to show it. Thanks,

Sounds good, Tania! I always make my roasts in the crockpot. They come out so tender and good.
Stay warm and have a great week!

Sounds good. You have the best recipes. My hubby and I are trying to cut back, this would fit into our meal plan.

I feel for you not be able to plant your garden unti the end of May. We are going to get ours started by the first of March. We planted onions in the fall and they are coming through our latest snow and should be ready by June. Can't wait.

Have a great week and keep those good recipes coming.

I know what you mean about dreaming of Spring! It's getting to be an obsession. We're expecting more snow tomorrow, but I try and stay busy and remember how hot it was when I was mowing last summer:)
That sirloin looks good. I can imagine a delicious meal of mashed potatoes and green bean on the side. Thanks for a new idea!

I know what you mean about planting a garden. I have been getting seed magazines too and I dream about getting out in the sunshine. I then look at my garden spot under a huge drift, but like you said a nice dream. We have been getting freezing fog and drizzle here all week. BLAH!!

A year ago, I had daylilies trying to poke up out of the ground. This year I have 6-12 inches of snow covering the gardens. I think comfort food is The Answer until we can get out there and work off the extra calories. It'll help us keep warm, right? ;o)
