Crock pot cooking is organized multi-tasking at its best! Don’t forget to buy the crock-pot liners for easy clean up. Can you believe that clean up issues are what people tell me is the main reason they don’t use it more! Spend $2 for 3 liners and never look back! This recipe was bubbling away in my crock yesterday and was my lunch today. I have adapted it from a Cooking Light 5 ingredient Cookbook:
Mediterranean Beef Stew:
2 large zucchini, cut into chunks
1– 1.5 lb beef stew meat, “bite size -small cut” if pre-cut at
store or cut into ½’’ pieces at home
2-14oz cans small/petite cut “garlic & olive oil” diced tomatoes
Generous shake over all meat /veg in pot of “shawarma meat”
(Shawarma is a Middle Eastern/Mediterranean spice blend popular in Lebanon, Jordan, Israel and Syria. The blend contains coriander, cumin, allspice, nutmeg, pepper, etc. and has a smoky/sweet quality to it.
It can be found in International Grocery stores or International areas of
Layer zucchini, then meat and tomatoes, spice in pot. Cook on low 8 hours or 5 hours on high if pressed for time. Serve with hot buttered bread/rolls.
Different and delicious!
