Use the Crock Pot During Long Winter Months
Winters in Minnesota can be hard for both the body and the mind. As we’re finding ourselves in the throngs of cold, ice and snow, I’ve been searching for quick and easy recipes to keep my bones warm and my taste buds happy.
2 ½ pounds beef stew meet, diced into 1” pieces or use meat for stroganoff
1 – 28 oz can of stewed tomatoes (include the juice)
1 c. chopped celery
3 potatoes, cubed
3 onions, chopped
3 ½ T tapioca
2 cubes beef bouillon
½ t dried thyme
½ t dried rosemary
½ t dried marjoram
salt and pepper
¼ c. red wine
2 c. water
1 (10 0z) package of thawed green peas
Secret ingredient: 3 T of lingonberry jam (or chutney if you like that better)
Put all ingredients into the crock pot and cook on low for 7 hours. Add thawed green peas during last half hour of cooking.
Bon Appetit – and stay warm!
