The school year is in full swing and so are the year's activities. If your family life is like mine - among ball games, play rehearsals, youth groups, homework clubs and social engagements - it's certainly not easy to find time to sit down to a relaxed family stewing beef and tomato recipe.
Cut the buns in half and take some of the bread out from inside, to give you more space for the fillings. Toast both halves of the bread in a skillet and spread some mayonnaise over both sides. Arrange some meat and vegetables on one half. You can choose from grilled braising steaks, fried chorizo, slow-cooked pulled beef, pulled pork or shredded chicken. Grilled onions and mushrooms are a tasty vegetarian option.
Go through your cookbooks and choose recipes that use vegetables that are in season. Fall crops include all of the heartier vegetables such as carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, turnips and potatoes. Stews are great fall and winter recipes because they use these fall crops and cheaper cuts of meat, like stewing steak. Make some nights meatless. Beans and rice or vegetarian chili are just two examples of classic meatless meals, but search your receipt books for more.
What you need to remember, and truly understand, is that you really cannot destroy a stew or a roasted chicken, or many of the other things you can make in your slow cooker. This is a hard one for most of us to believe. We have been conditioned that we need to follow slow cooker braising steak, or else we will end up with an inedible mess. This is just untrue!
There are also many other benefits to cold showers, including increased blood circulation, especially at a peripheral level. They also make your hair shinier and healthier, your skin softer, and are said to have anti-aging and mood-enhancing properties.
Once you have each of the items ready, just put them in a 3-4 quart crockpot. Cover and prepare dinner on Lower temperature for 8 hours. Serve it with rice or pasta together, and you'll have a satisfying food.
Try to avoid opening the lid. When you open the lid of a crock pot, you let out the steam and moisture, braising beef cheeks this will change your cooking time (by as much as 20 minutes). It's important to follow the recipe closely, add each ingredient when the recipe calls for it - and then leave your slow cooker alone!
