This hearty meal is warm, filling, and full of vitamins. It's a great way to sneak those vegetables into your children, since they're hidden in all that great flavor. I've been making this for years, and I usually just throw whatever veggies and seasonings I have available here at home. Be creative with it! Ingredients: 1 package stew meat 1 can seasoned tomatoes (mine were seasoned with basil and oregano) 2 large potatoes (peeled and diced) 2 large carrots (peeled and diced) 3 cloves of garlic (peeled, but whole) 1/2 cup frozen corn 1 head cabbage (you won't use very much of it) 1 tablespoon flour 1 package dry onion soup mix 2 tablespoons beef granules 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning 1/2 teaspoon cayenne salt and pepper to taste water (to cover beef and veggies) Directions: In your crockpot, place your stew meat. Sprinkle flour over the meat and stir. Drop in your veggies (except cabbage), canned tomatoes, onion soup mix, beef granules, and seasonings. Add enough water to *just* cover the top of the meat and veggies. Cook on low for 10-12 hours, or on high for 3-6, stirring occasionally. About 30 minutes before serving, tear off cabbage leaves and add them to the top. Add more seasonings if necessary. Serve with cornbread.
Living in small town Oklahoma, I am married to the sweetest man you will ever meet. We have five young children, so I would now consider myself a professional juggler. I'm a wannabe crafter, cook, baker, and gardener. Some might call me crunchy. I'm okay with it.
