Beefy steaks wrapped around a spinach filling are a great dinner to come home to.

Ingredients

4
beef cubed steaks (about 1 1/4 pounds)
1/4
cup basil pesto
1
tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon instant minced onion
1
package (9 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed to drain
1/2
cup beef broth
1
teaspoon finely chopped garlic
1
tablespoon cornstarch
1
tablespoon water

Directions

  • 1 Flatten each beef steak to 1/8-inch thickness. Spread 1 tablespoon pesto over each steak; sprinkle each with 1 teaspoon onion. Divide spinach among steaks, spreading to edges. Roll up steaks; secure with toothpicks.
  • 2 Place steaks in 2- to 3 1/2-quart slow cooker. Mix broth and garlic; pour over steaks.
  • 3 Cover and cook on low heat setting 8 to 9 hours or until beef is tender.
  • 4 Remove steaks from cooker to serving platter; keep warm.
  • 5 Skim fat from beef juices in cooker if desired. Measure 1 cup juices; pour into small saucepan. Mix cornstarch and water; stir into juices. Cook over medium-high heat about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until thickened. Serve over steaks.
Tips  

Flatten the cubed steaks by placing them between sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper and pounding with the flat side of a meat mallet or a rolling pin. Don't have a meat mallet or rolling pin? Press the heel of your hand over the top of the steak until it is evenly flattened.

Traditional pesto is a mixture of basil, garlic, olive oil and pine nuts. Today, however, this popular sauce can be made from other herbs and vegetables instead of basil. There is sun-dried tomato, roasted bell pepper and spinach pesto, just to mention a few, so use whichever pesto you like.

To add crunch and bright red color to this dish, add a chopped small red bell pepper to the sauce when you stir in the cornstarch mixture.
