WHERE’S THE BEEF?!
Oh yeah. It’s weird because I used to never crave beef. Then as soon as I stopped dieting and started listening to my body, I realized that I do have times in my life where I actually genuinely crave beef. It’s weird.
But pretty delicious as well 😉
Last time I tried a sausage and chicken dinner so this time it was a bit different flavor. So I was pretty excited to try this dinner from Crock Pot Cuisine for Rustic Beef Stew. Cozy… homey… perfect for a chilly evening.
I have never in my life made something like this before. At least not by myself. My mom has made stew like this several times but with lamb or veal but not beef. I won’t lie – I felt pretty awesome making such a traditional meal (even if I wasn’t technically making it… oh the beauty of the Crock Pot)
The final out come was delicious but it needed some veggie action.
I got some kale out of the freezer and added it to the Crock Pot in the last 30 minutes of cooking to kick it up a notch. It was a perfect solution.
Mmmm… comforting AND healthy. Now that’s a perfect dinner 🙂
It was new to me to eat potatoes like this because I’m not a big potato person (err except french fries on occasion, I guess – I love me some bar food) so it was interesting. I think the last time I had potatoes like this was… oh man, many many years ago.
My parents eat healthy like me and do not really use potatoes either except for hash browns my dad likes to eat with eggs sometimes. Or potato pancakes. He’s obsessed with potato pancakes, or at least he was last time I checked.
Anyway, this dinner was fantastic and very comforting and it was perfect for a cozy night in. It provided just the right amount of warmth 🙂
