I came up with my own crock pot concoction yesterday and it was GREAT!
I had some stew meat which I browned with some onion salt, then threw in the CP. Then I chopped up a few carrots, celery and potatoes and added them in with a can of beef broth and a can of tomato sauce, some oregano, thyme and pepper. After it cooked for a few hours, I boiled some barley and added that in as well. It ended up being REALLY thick after the barley sucked up most of the juice, so I added one more can of beef broth. Since we went out to eat with the family last night, we didn’t get a chance to eat it, but I had some for breakfast alright, and it was SO tasty! Even Andrew approved when he had some for lunch. I guess I’d call it Beef Barley Stew, as it was still pretty thick and not soupy at all. I could probably have added another can of tomato sauce or beef broth, but the final product was too good to mess with. I can’t wait to make it again. It was about $6.00 for all of the ingredients.
If I remember, I’ll take a picture before it’s eaten up, and post the actual recipe so it’s easier to read.
