This delicious meal is perfect for the month of March (or really anytime of the year as it really is tasty). With St. Patrick's Day being on March 17th, why not start the celebration early with this incredible slow cooker recipe? The recipe (which I found in the Irish Cooking Bible cookbook) calls for a bottle of Irish stout beer and is simple to make. It also is perfect with my garlic and herb mashed potatoes. These fall-off-the-bone ribs will be an instant hit with friends and family for many years to come!
I used a bottle of Guinness stout beer and the flavor came out fantastic!
You can chop up the raw bacon and cook according to the recipe, or you can cook the bacon whole, drain on paper towels, and crumble bacon once cooled.
This recipe only gets better if made ahead and refrigerated overnight. It is also easier to skim any fat from the surface. Transfer meat to a 9 by 13-inch baking dish cover with foil and place in a warm oven to reheat. I like to gentl...
I developed this delicious chicken recipe many years ago. The great thing about this recipe is that most of the work is done in the morning. The dish then cooks all day in the crockpot. That way you have the rest of the day to complete tasks or work and still have an amazing home-cooked dinner ready in the evening. This dish has a lot of flavor, and the vegetables and herbs compliment the chicken perfectly. This meal is made even better when topped with a mouthwatering sauce. I hope you enjoy my family's favorite crockpot chicken!
You can skip making the sauce if you want to save on the fat and calories. If you do so, when the dish is done cooking, season to taste and then serve.
Always read over the ingredients and directions carefully before starting a recipe.
This beef stew is a perfect meal for a chilly autumn day. I don't know where I first got this recipe, but I have had it a long time. I love slow cooker recipes, because when you don't have the time in the evening to prepare a meal, the slow cooker provides! Meaning that you can throw a bunch of ingredients in the slow cooker in the morning and then in the evening, you have a delicious home-cooked meal. This French onion beef stew has a wonderful flavor that is a delight to the taste buds. To make this stew extra special, serve it with cheese toast; it is delicious!
Before serving (any meal), taste the dish to see if it needs salt and pepper. Add and adjust your meal according to how it tastes.
For those new to broiling (but really want to make the cheese toast), there is typically a broil option on your oven (most ovens with have a button that says 'broil'). My broiler option automatically heats the oven up to 500 degrees F. You move the rack u...
I love slow cooker recipes; especially for those busy days where the thought of preparing dinner sounds exhausting. This one is extra nice, because the prep work is fast and easy. You can easily throw this together before you go to work or start your day. I adapted this recipe from the May 2011 edition of Woman's Day Magazine. I love the versatility of this recipe as well (see tips). If you make these yummy hoagies, please let me know what you think!
Sometimes, I do not drain the tomatoes, and I add up to a pound more of the sausages. If you decide to try this, just make sure you serve it with a slotted spoon.
For those who do not eat pork, I have made this with an Italian poultry sausage. The results were excellent!
You can also serve this open-faced sandwich style. Toast thick slices of bread, and place the meat-veggie mixture on the toast. Top with cheese.
You can use any cheese you desire: asiago, goat cheese, feta, mozzarella...
