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.

BUSY COOK'S STEW

1 1/2 lb lean stew meat
flour for dredging
2 tbsp canola oil
1 large onion, diced
1 large garlic clove, minced
4 large potatoes, chunked
6 large carrots, cut into chunks
1 can Italian-seasoned diced tomatoes
1 1/2 tomato cans of water
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste

Sprinkle the stew meat with salt and pepper; dredge in flour, shaking to remove excess.

Heat the canola oil over medium-high heat in a large nonstick skillet.  Add the beef and brown on all sides. Remove to a slow cooker or crockpot.

Add the remaining ingredients to the cooker and stir to blend.  Place lid on cooker and cook on low setting for approximately 8 hours until beef is tender.

Yield: 6 servings
