We have crockpot meals for supper at least twice a week and they've been a real help during hectic busy days. I usually use the crockpot for one-dish meals which we add nothing to or just rice/bread/pasta to make a complete meal.
Very low calorie soup that is good. I asked at the store for mung beans and they said bean sprouts were the same thing. I believe this is another version of the WW 0 point soup, using different vegetables. Recipe source: local newspaper
I make this ahead of time so I can check meat carefully and serve with mashed potatoes that I also make ahead. The timing doesn't really fit for all day being gone. Eye of round is very lean meat so the gravy is important. If butcher has a better cut of meat like sirloin I buy that instead.
February 24Th is National tortilla day and what better way to celebrate along with National Chili Day on the 28TH. Leftovers can be spread over a layer of cream cheese topped with shredded cheese, warmed then topped with salsa, sour cream, jalapenos.... served with tortillas Made for Dining on a Dollar.
This is a flavorful beef stew that's easy to make. I have made it in a crock pot, on the stove and in the oven, depending on my time and the weather. I don't like a lot of meat in my stew, and I think this is enough, though my husband likes it with 3 lbs meat. I like to serve it as is in a bowl, or you can serve it on a plate with brown rice.
The stewed tomatoes and jalapeno pepper give this slow cooker recipe its Creole zing, along with seasoning and other veggies. This is an easy and tasty Creole chicken recipe. Just put all ingredients into the slow cooker and let it simmer all day. It's perfect over egg noodles or rice. To change up any leftovers, add chicken stock and veggies to the leftovers to make a tasty soup.
The recipe for Creole Seasoning is included...this is great in many dishes and keeps once prepared in your spice cabinet.
From "150 Best Indian, Thai, Vietnamese and More Slow Cooker Recipes" by Sunil Vijayakar. I actually had ground turkey and that worked beautifully in this recipe. I also modified the recipe to eliminate the frying, which also worked out really well, and am posting both versions. This is rather spicy, so if you are uncertain reduce the number of chile peppers or amount of curry paste.
So easy to make in the crock pot, great for a winter's day. Boomette's thoughtful review has had me reconsider having salt on the ingredient list, so it is removed. You can always use the salt shaker at the table, but you can't take it out, so this is a good move.
