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.

MIXED BEANS AND BEEF

1 lb ground beef
1/2 lb bacon, chopped
1 can (15-oz) baked beans
1 can (15-oz) kidney beans
1 can (15-oz) butter beans
1 can (14-oz) pork and beans
1/2 cup catsup
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp prepared mustard
1 cup packed brown sugar (Or 1/2 cup packed Splenda Brown Sugar Blend)
4 tbsp cider vinegar

In a large skillet, brown the bacon and ground beef until the beef is no longer pink, stirring to crumble.  Drain the mixture well and pour meats into a preheated slow cooker or crockpot; discard fats from the meat.

Stir the remaining ingredients into the cooker with the meats; stir to mix together well.  Place the lid on the cooker and cook on low setting 4 to 6 hours.

Yield: 10 to 12 servings.
