    Here is my beef stew recipe:

    Layer from bottom up -

    3-4 cubed white potatoes (I use Yukon Gold size B)
    1 lb trimmed beef stew meat
    baby carrots
    fresh sliced mushrooms
    1 can Contadina Burgundy & Olive Oil diced tomatoes with juice
    1 can beef broth mixed with 1 packet McCormicks reduced sodium beef gravy
    Kosher salt/fresh ground black pepper to taste

    Low 6-8 hours

    If I don't have the McCormicks mix on hand, I thicken with cornstarch at the end.

    Bump
  • I am so excited about all of these recipes!

    Here's mine! Takes a bit of explaining though.

    I get the three pack Free Range Chicken and use one of those.
    It is about 1 lb of chicken.
    Add 4 tablespoons of coconut oil.
    1 Purple/Red onion (cut as you prefer)
    Fill the crock pot the rest of the way with water
    Cook on Low for 10 hours
    Optional: Vegetables
    I normally add the vegetables in when reheating because I don't like mushy veggies.

    Perfect and fast for cold days and you can freeze it as well! I wait for it to cool then put it into Zip Lock bags and stick in the freezer.

    Chicken Stroganoff

    4 Chicken breasts ( fresh or frozen)
    1 16 ounce Fat Free Sour Cream
    1 can of Fat Free Cream of Chicken soup
    1 Packet of Lipton's onion soup (have used generic)

    Place the chicken breast in the bottom of the crock pot. Mix the sour cream, cream of chicken soup and onion soup together until well blended. Next spread the cream mixture over the chicken in the crock pot. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 4-6 hours on low. I usually serve on top of brown rice with broccoli on the side. It is one of my families favorites!

    Thanks for the recipe. Will have to try this sometime.

    {Easy but Delicious} Chicken Tacos

    4 large chicken breasts
    1 cup chicken stock
    1 can Rotel (or salsa)
    1 packet taco seasoning

    *Cook on high for 2 hours, low for 3. Shred chicken when tender.

    I skip the tortilla shell & opt for a bed of lettuce instead. Enjoy!
