This is a super family meal that is quick, easy, and everyone will rave about it. Using the slow cooker/crock pot gives you time to make the sides and clean up the kitchen before the meal! We usually serve with a veggie and a starch and you can add a can of mushrooms to the gravy as well if desired. Also simply double the recipe if you are serving more people.
The aroma of this roast made DH and DS drool. I had a beautiful roast from the market and wanted to try simple spices yet aromatic! This is what the doctor ordered for a very chilly January day. DH and DS loved it!
After looking over all the cube steak recipes this is what I came up with. My family loved these and now they want cube steaks at least once a week!! Fork tender you don't need a knife for these! Mashed potatoes go well with these.
I adapted this recipe from one I found on the A Year of Slow Cooking blog. It works remarkably well, with the meatballs even getting a little brown, at least the ones on top. My no-salt seasoning contained onion powder, garlic powder, and other things. I found it to be a bit spicy, and might reduce the quantity next time, or use rosemary or Italian herbs. Please pay attention to comment on how long to cook. The originator suggested you can double or even triple the recipe, but I have not tried that.
This meatloaf is a breeze to make, holds together and slices nicely- a problem I have had with meatloaves in the past. It is a sure winner from my mother-in-law, who is a fabulous cook. Feel free to experiment with Ro-Tel tomatoes or other ingredients.
My husband insisted that I post this one. I make this when we go to my brother's cabin in the late fall. We sit outside and eat beans 'n wieners by a blazing fire. Reminds my husband of his scouting days. The kids like it too.
This is a copycat version of a dish served by a local diner in central Pennsylvania. My mom & dad used to always go there specifically to order this meal, until my mom finally nailed the recipe. It has quickly become a family favorite and a regular meal that I have to make for DH... This gravy is very flavorful and especially delicious over shoestring french fries!
I bought the new cookbook by the Six Sisters who blog online. Naturally I had to check out their blog, too, and happened on a blog they wrote about freezer meals. Freezer meals seem to me to be a cross between "Once-a-Month " cooking and the Dump Cicken recipes that were so popular. The sisters' blog claim you can make 8 different recipes or 32 meals in an hour which makes it much less labor-intensive than once-a-month cooking and also has more meat variety than the dump chicken recipes. I got so excited by this blog, I googled "freezer meals" and was directed to four other blogs and lots more recipes. I am planning to make 8 recipes tomorrow to see how it goes.
5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. As a busy Mom, the slow cooker is my friend! This recipe will allow a Sunday dinner any night of the week. Be sure not to over fill the center, or it will separate, exposing your mashed potatoes. The beef will shrink slightly in the slow cooker. The best way to easily remove your meat loaf in one piece is to use a slow cooker liner and remove it supporting the sides, keeping your meatloaf in one piece until ready to slice.
This hearty all-in-one beef dish is packed with delicious strips of sirloin, onions, diced fresh carrots, diced fresh celery and a savory sauce that blends the flavors of garlic, sun dried tomatoes, red wine, rosemary and thyme. Slow cooked and served over warm egg noodles.
This recipe is great for doubling or tripling by keeping the raw meat and sauce together in the freezer (in bags) for a quick hearty meal.
