Painted Desert Tomato-Cilantro Steak

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by DailyInspiration

Found this recipe in my Classic Southwest cookbook. I might try this recipe in my slow cooker vs. baking in the oven. Recipe calls for salsa in addition to diced tomatoes.

Very good and easy to make. The steak was tender and perfect. I really liked the carrots in the dish because they seemed to absorb all the salsa flavor. I used a fairly mild salsa, but the whole dish came out incredibly spicy. I enjoyed it the heat, but it's a fair warning to anyone who wouldn't.
