My husband is not a huge fan of the slow cooker. Other than soups and sauces, he'd be happy if I let it get dusty on the shelf.
But, when he bit into a sandwich featuring this slow cooker creation, he actually liked it. "That's pretty good," he said. I'll take the complement.
This one is super simple - just chop, dump and cook. It's yummy on a sandwich or over mashed potatoes or rice.
Slow Cooker BBQ Beef
3 pounds of lean stew beef
2 cups onions, chopped
3 green bell peppers, chopped
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
6 ounces of tomato paste
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. dry mustard powder
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Dump all of the ingredients into your slow cooker and stir until it's just combined. Cover. Cook on low for 10 to 12 hours or on high for 7 to 8 hours.
This was enough to feed my family of (light) eaters for at least three dinners, along with a couple of lunches for the adults.
