Crockpot cooking. What could be easier than putting a few ingredients in a dish and letting them slowly roast all day?

The Method
  • 1# roast (left over from Julia's boeuf bourguignon)
  • two carrots
  • stalk of celery
  • an onion
  • ground cloves (we're out of whole)
  • bay leaves
  • splash of red wine (Mad Dog & Englishmen)
  • 1 TB of vegetable stock base (Penzey's)
Last night:
  1. Lightly coat beef in seasoned flour and brown
  2. Remove beef, add veggies and soften
  3. Deglaze the pan with a little water, veggie base
  4. Refrigerate veggies, beef, and liquid overnight
  1. Add all ingredients, including spices and wine to crockpot
  2. Set to low for 10 hours
  3. Enjoy with OPO green beans and Anadama bread
The Results
The kids finished their dinner before we did.  Not a definitive indicator of "tasty," but certainly suggestive of a successful dish.
