Crockpots are lifesavers! They help get good food on the table for families who are busy. Below is a recipe which I put together from several different recipes. Not tested, but I think it will work.
1 pound chuck roast, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 whole onions, diced
2 each carrots, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 cloves garlic, diced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
14 ounces crushed tomatoes
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons paprika
2 each bay leaves, whole
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup light sour cream
1. Add the meat, onion, carrots and garlic to your crockpot. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, stir together the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, water and paprika and pour it over the meat mixture. Add bay leaves. Cook on low for 8 to 9 hours. Remove bay leaves.
2. Get out a small bowl and whisk together the flour, water and sour cream. Stir it into your cooked beef mixture and cook it uncovered on high for 15 to 20 minutes. You’ll notice that the sauce will start to thicken.
Notes: If you want to make this into a stew, just add some diced potatoes and some frozen veggies such as okra! You may have to just add more crushed tomatoes and more salt and pepper. No big deal! Recipes are meant to be fun!
Serving Ideas: Serve over noodles or rice. Serve with mashed potatoes. Serve with polenta. Serve with a piece of cornbread.
