Crock-pot Thursday

Ok, I have to confess something…….Cooking is not my favorite thing in the world. However, throughout the years I’ve come to appreciate the value of placing a hot meal on table for my family. Not to mention, taking the time to prepare a meal saves MONEY. So, here is my first entry for “What’s for dinner”. Enjoy!

If you have easy to prepare meals or crock-pot meals you would like to share, please email them to me:)

Sweet And Sour Beef Over Rice (crock-pot)

2 pounds boneless chuck
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
2 T. butter or margarine
1 T. olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup of red wine vinegar
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 cup water
1 tsp. salt/ pepper to taste
4-6 carrots diagonally sliced

Cut beef into 1-inch cubes. Mix together flour, salt, and pepper and place cubes in mixture. In a skillet, heat margarine and olive oil and brown beef cubes. Place browned beef in crock-pot. Add remaining ingredients except for carrots. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 9 hours. Add carrots and cook on low 1 and half hrs or on high for 30 minutes. Serve with rice.
