    Somebody (@Ganado maybe) in the "thickening" thread asked me to post a few recipes. Most of the ones I reuse a lot aren't on paper...I started each with someone else's recipe and "adjusted" to my taste and they live in my head. I typed this one up for here, as it is one of the favorites and I end up doing it every couple of months. There is another beef one I use quite a bit that includes Chinese 5 Spice that I will try to get on paper soon.

    Anyone else who has recipes they enjoy for the crockpot/slow cooker, please add here.
    Pepper Steak:

    • 2-2.5 lbs beef sirloin cut in strips (1.5”-2” wide)
      garlic powder
      enough of whatever oil you prefer to brown meat...personally, I am an old guy who grew up in a farm family who doesn't worry too much about healthy so I tend toward bacon grease if I have enough stashed...I think original recipe was "Veggie oil".
      2 cubes beef bouillon
      1/4 cup hot water
      1 TBSP cornstarch
      1 small or 1/2 large onion chopped small
      3 sm bell peppers (1 green, 1 red and 1 yellow is what I use…if you want to stick to one color for some reason you can use 2 lg)
      1 can (14.5oz) tomatoes….I use S&W Italian recipe diced with garlic, oregano and works well.
      3 or 4 TBSP soy sauce
      1 TSP white sugar
      1TSP salt
      I tend to also toss in about a TSP of Cayenne pepper unless there is someone coming who over reacts to spiciness.

    Sprinkle meat with garlic powder to taste and brown in the oil (get skillet and oil hot before you start)…put meat in crockpot.

    put onion, peppers, tomatoes, soy sauce, sugar and salt (plus cayenne if desired) on top of meat.

    Mix bouillon cubes with water until dissolved and add cornstarch…pour over meat.

    Cover, cook on low for 7 hrs (or high for about 4, but I think it is tastier done on low)

    I serve with rice to soak up the juice.

    EDIT: I knew I would forget something. I use my cast iron skillet for the browning and then deglaze it with about 1/4 cp of apple cider vinegar and put that in the pot also. Wasn't in the original recipe, but is one of those things I just do with some kind of liquid most of the time with all my "brown and then in the crockpot" recipes.

    Italian Dip Sammich! Like french dip, but better!
    Take sliced beef (Prime Rib) ether deli style or cut to preferred thickness and brown in flower and set aside.
    in Crock pot, add 1/2 sliced yellow or white onion, add one large sliced green pepper with seeds, add 4 or 5 jalapeno peppers with juice ( I like pickled) with seeds. 2 tee spoons crushed black pepper, diced carrot rounds, about 1 carrot 6 inches should do it, and one full celery sliced to same thickness as carrot. Add in water and beef broth and red wine if you like, and let simmer in crock pot until the juice starts to thicken, add sliced beef and let simmer for a few hours with out letting liquid thicken. Toast Italian rolls and set aside until ready to serve. When ready, Strain meat and veggies and place desired amount on roll, serve Aju juice in small boll on the side. Can also serve wet!
    Best with french fries or tater tots
    Can also add horse radish spread to roll and or mayo to taste.

    Oh I saw something similar to that Sammich recipe in the Gooseberry Patch Christmas recipe book I got from library, it has a few slow cooker recipes. One from the book I wanna try is Garlic Chicken Alfredo. But I disagree with their serving will not serve 4 to 6, it will serve TWO! Though maybe I should start trying the actual serving sizes as a way to prepare for bad times...

    Kraut and Pork
    1 big jar sauerkraut (drained)
    1 or 2 apples suitable for cooking
    sliced pork loin
    brown sugar (if you use dark brown you can get the same flavor with less sugar)

    peel and slice apples
    put half the kraut in the bottom of the crock pot
    add brown sugar (amount depends on how much kraut and your preferences)
    add half the apple slices and mix
    lay the pork loin on top
    add the remainder of the kraut, apples, and sugar on top of the pork
    let the crock pot work it's magic

    If there was anything my time in the military taught me it's that one doesn't need to practice being miserable. Enjoy what you can when you can, because you can bet you will be miserable at some future time and it really doesn't take any special knowledge.
