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.

1 lb boneless round steak, cut into bite-size pieces

2 medium onions, diced
3 celery ribs, sliced
3 medium carrots, sliced
1 cup cut-up cabbage
3 beef bouillon cubes
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano

Combine all the above ingredients, except the frozen vegetables, in the crockpot or slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 6 hours. Add the frozen vegetables, cover and cook for an additional 2 hours or until meat and vegetables are tender.
