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.

VEGETABLE RICE PILAF

2 lbs ground beef
2 1/2 cups water
2 cans (8-oz each) tomato sauce
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 small garlic cloves, minced
1 small onion, chopped
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
2/3 cup sliced ripe olives
1 1/3 cups raw long grain rice

Brown the ground beef in a skillet until no longer pink; drain well.

Transfer the drained beef to a crockpot or slow cooker.  Add the water, tomato sauce, bell pepper, garlic, onion, salt, pepper, and olives; stir to blend.  Stir in the rice; cover and cook on low setting for 5 to 6 hours or on high setting for 3 hours.
