This was a throw-together dish that resulted from defrosted meat, no fresh veggies, and a deep desire to break out my crock pot. The meat was falling apart tender (enough so that my 14 month old could eat it with no problems) and the juice was perfect over mashed potatoes.
I'm sure you could use more steaks that what I did for the amount of juice, but this is typed out just as I made it.
This is a variation from a Bob's Red Mill recipe. Very hearty and healthy. I like serving these with berry sauce instead of maple syrup. My small children (under 3 years) also enjoy eating the pancakes cold as a snack.
I love this recipe, as does my family. It can be served with pasta, but usually I serve it as a stand alone. This recipe came from the internet, but I can't seem to remember where I got it. If you have picky eaters who will not eat onions, half the onions, then quarter them so the pieces are large enough to pick out (though my two year old thinks they are noodles in this recipe). They are very important in the flavoring.
