For dinner tonight, we had the easiest ever crockpot stew. This is a staple in our household, especially when I know it is going to be a crazy day and the last thing I am going to want to do at 4:30 is cook.
Here’s what I did:Combine in Crockpot: 6-8 potatoes, peeled and sliced 4-6 carrots, peeled and sliced 1 onion, chopped 1 pound ground beef, browned (I had already done this, so it was cooked in a container in my refrigerator) 2 cups of V8 or tomato juice, or 1 cup tomato sauce and 1 cup of water Salt and pepper to taste 2 tablespoons rice Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or high for 4-5 hours.
You can serve this basically as a whole meal, although we add applesauce or a salad to round it out a bit. It doesn’t look or sound like much, but it is so filling and satisfying…..great comfort food. And of course, naturally GF, and quite economical. I think I’ll be making this quite a bit in the next few weeks to use up my carrots from Walmart!
