Ball-Tip Steak Stew with Mushrooms and Sherry

I often buy meat sliced the ball tip because they are less expensive than other steaks. This cut comes from top round or sirloin. It is not tender, as other steaks, such as T-Bone, and requires thoughtful preparation. Steaks ball party accepted a massage and soak well. Coal can be grilled, pan-grilled or braised.

This cut has a good flavor. Some steaks an inch and a half or more thick. Before cooking thick steaks in a cast iron skillet I cut them in half horizontally to ensure doneness. Tenderness of this cut, ranging from barely chew, to chew, to tender to a certain extent. However, it is not tender, as tenderloin or T-bone.

There are old-fashioned butcher in the town of my shop, and I love to go there because the meat is wonderful and friendly staff. I recently bought some steaks ball party and they were huge, seven inches long, two inches thick. How should you cook? I decided to use the meat for soup recipe I created came from the ingredients at hand.

I had a box of fresh mushrooms in the refrigerator, and decided to add it to the soup. I also had a large collection of tomatoes Rome, as a result of shopping at a discount store, a lot of tomatoes for two years. Although we may eat tomatoes regularly, and feared that the rest of the spoil, and decided to add it to the soup.

It has made this recipe in a Dutch oven or slow cooker. I opted for the method of slow cooker stew was delicious. We had two meals and I froze the rest. Soups serve with crackers or crusty bread, a green salad tossed. This recipe makes about eight servings.
