    Here's my completion for this challenge....I had fun working on this and the results were really good....of course I started with a really good recipe so that helped icon_lol.gif

    I made magpie diner's Vegan Bean Cassoulet #373286 and adapted it for the crock pot. I posted the adapted Crock Pot Vegan Bean Cassoulet #484128.



    Here are the changes I made for crock-pot cooking:

    * Cut the veggies into bigger chunks and did not saute them first (so didn't need 2 T of the oil)

    * Doubled the herbes de provence and used half the amount of veggie broth

    * Cooked half of the breadcrumb mixture in the crock pot with the veggies the entire time, then toasted the remaining crumbs in a skillet and topped the veggies with them at serving time

    This was a fun challenge! Thanks to whoever thought it up! icon_lol.gif


    loof,
    So glad you had fun with this challenge. I'll get your completion noted.

    To complete this challenge, I started with Rita's "Beef Bourguignon" #54850. This recipe was easy to adapt to the crock pot. All I really had to do was reduce the amount of wine by half and then increase the cooking time for the slow cooker. I still browned the meat and vegetables in a cast iron skillet because this adds so much to the flavor. It takes a little extra time if you are rushed in the morning, but it is so worth it. This was a really delicious recipe and so full of flavor.

    The new slow cooker recipe I adapted from the original recipe is "Slow Cooker Beef Bourguignon" #484132.

    Thanks Lainey. I like the way you still browned the meat and veggies to get full flavor.

    I had a lot of fun adapting Wine-Braised Beef #482673 by breezermom #226863. It was quite easy to do, actually. I also browned the meat and vegetables before adding to the slow cooker, then added only half the required liquids (including draining the tomatoes). I chose the speedier cooking method (4 hours on High) and the beef was perfect. Finished off the gravy in a saucepan, and I had a wonderful dinner on the table (which I did not have much success photographing). The house smelled wonderful while it was cooking, and certainly whet the appetite.

    The new recipe posted is Breezermom's Slow Cooker Wine-Braised Beef #484105.

    Jackie -
    so glad that you had fun. That's the point, right? icon_lol.gif Like that you used several different steps to convert this. Browning, high setting, and gravy on the stovetop. Thanks.

    So I didn't read everyone else's recipe choices, and ended up picking the same recipe that someone else has picked - is that ok, or should I do another one? I didn't think to check until after I had already prepared the dish and posted my recipe icon_redface.gif

    Sure, you can make the one that you've already selected. More than one player can make the same recipe. icon_wink.gif

    I chose Lavender Lynn's Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes #482036 to make in my crockpot.

    I really didn't need to make any changes to cook it in the crockpot - I sliced the potato thinner to help them cook faster and just put it in my crock pot instead of in the oven. I like that it held really well, so we could have staggered eating with everyone getting fresh, warm food.

    My recipe version is: Creamy AuGratin Potatoes {Crockpot} #484241
