From "For the Breast of Friends!" Tried this since it was yucky outside, and it makes my house smell wonderful!

I made this, but didn't use the slow cooker method. I coated the meat in a flour, garlic salt and pepper combination and then browned it. Then I added the other veggies and let them cook for a bit, until tender. Then I added the remaining ingredients, covered it and let it simmer for about an hour. So delicious and tender!!! I served it with mashed potatoes and gravy, that I thickened from the sauce, and corn on the cob. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 7.

Photo may be seen here in the Savor gallery: .You just have to love the crock pot. This came out great and DH even had two servings. Tender enough that no knives were needed and lots of rich flavor. I included 4 whole carrots (young organic ones). The sauce was delish with the noodles. Yummy :D. Made for ZWT 9

A delicious and comforting crock pot meal. The recipe was reduced to 4 servings. I added in a couple of carrots that were cut into 1 inch chunks. The onions, celery and meat were browned for added depth. This was served with Creamy Polenta for a delicious and comforting meal. I would definitely make this again. Made for ZWT7.
