WELCOME

Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

CLASSIC BEEF STEW

1 tall can V8 juice
1 1-lb pkg baby carrots
3 medium potatoes, cubed
1 tsp original Mrs. Dash seasoning
1-2 lb beef stew meat
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
1 beef bouillon cube
1 cup water
1 pkg (10-oz) frozen peas
salt and peppe to taste

In crockpot or slow cooker, combine the V8 juice, carrots (halve if too large), potatoes, and Mrs. Dash seasoning. In a large skillet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, brown the onions with the beef; add to the crockpot. Add the water and bouillon cube to the skillet stirring to dissolve bouillon and loosen residue in skillet; add to the crockpot. Season to your taste with salt and pepper. Set pot on high and cook for 4 to 6 hours or on low and cook for 6 to 8 hours. Add the peas the last 20 minutes of the cooking time.
