I remember now why I don't like to cook in the crock pot.

When it comes to beef round, I think the term "steak" applies to the cutting technique, not the meat.

I've never put ribs in my crock; but this is Memphis and I have 4 smokers sitting within 20 feet of my crock pot!

Now don't tell anyone this but I am not a fan of a crock pot either. I have even tried searing the outside of meat first but like you said it is still boiled meat. So when I do use a crock pot it is because I made soup on the stove and want to keep it warm....LOL......but the ones I have are big heavy things and I just don't like washing them....I hate to think of the women that used to have to tote and clean those big crocks the kind my grandma made pickles in...


The only thing round is good for is jerky...that is my opinion.....


But I do have a round steak story.


When my kids were little I bought this whole round steak...it was huge. But cheap. I was going to fix hamburgers for the kids. A friend that was having coffee with me that day said " That is a pretty rotten thing to do....you have steak and the kids have hamburgers." About that time 2 of my boys came running through and I asked them what they wanted for supper steak or hamburger they yelled....


HAMBURGER, HAMBURGER.


So I looked at my friend and asked her if I should force them to eat steak......we had a good laugh......


But when supper was over Del said that he thought he would rather have the hamburgers too... Round steak is tougher than most shoes...lol

YES, I make a really wicked country fried steak using round, but I don't make it often because of the "fried food" thing.
