Hangar Steak Goulash

Ganked from Bridgid

You can make this up to go in the crock pot in just a few minutes, after you fry up a few pieces of bacon for breakfast and it will be ready when most of you get home from work.
1 and 1/2  pound hangar steak.
1  cup dry white wine
7-8  pieces of bacon, four cooked just tender, the remainder cooked crispy for garnish. Save a little bit of the drippings.
2 small cans tomatoes (with juice)
3 celery hearts, chopped (not diced fine)
3/4 large sweet onion sliced
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp Jane's Krazy Salt  (Moody's sells it but the website is here. )
1 Tablespoon minced garlic (or 3 cloves)
1  and 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
2 teaspoons HOT Hungarian paprika
Marinate the hangar steak in  a zip lock bag in dry white wine for a few hours (or overnight) in the refrigerator.  Remove meat, reserving 1/2 cup of the wine (discard rest).
Place steak in crock pot and cover with tomatoes, reserved wine, celery, onion, Worcestershire, spices and four chopped slices of the  tender bacon (with a teaspoon of the drippings), reserving crispy bacon bits for topping later. Stir gently, cover and set to cook for low for 8 hours (mine has a feature which will move it to warm when the 8 hours is done).
When you get home remove about a half cup of the broth, let cool slightly and stir in a couple heaping teaspoons of flour if you would like the stock thicker and whisk until there are no lumps. SLOWLY  stream into the crock pot, stirring constantly, then place lid back on, turn heat up if it's on warm and continue cooking another 15-30 minutes to thicken.
Serve in bowls with sour cream and chopped crispy bacon.  This would also be good over noodles for those so inclined.  :-)
