Beef with Sun-dried Tomatoes and Feta

It’s Thursday, and time for another crock pot recipe. I found this recipe at a great food blog dedicated to crock potting. I changed the cut of beef to top sirloin, since we can’t get tri-tip in our neck of the woods, and I also changed the cooking time. It was pretty good, and everyone actually ate it…even our youngest who has not been the best dinner eater of late.  I created a quick couscous salad to serve along with the beef, which was really good.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. tri-tip or sirloin, cut into bit size pieces
  • 1/6 c. white wine
  • 4 oz. sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained and chopped
  • 4 oz. garlic and herb feta cheese cheese
  • Cooking spray

Directions:

  1. Spray crock pot with cooking spray. Add beef to crock, then add wine, tomatoes, and feta cheese.
  2. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 hours.
  3. Serve over couscous salad.

Quick Couscous Salad Ingredients:

  • 1 c. couscous
  • 1 1/2 c. water
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 c. grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 basil, chiffonade

Directions:

  1. In a covered saucepan bring couscous, water, olive oil, salt and pepper to a boil. Remove from heat, keep covered and let stand for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Fluff the couscous with a fork.
  3. In a bowl combine couscous, tomatoes, and basil. Mix well and adjust seasoning if necessary.
