Holidays are for Slow Cookers!
It’s the most hectic time of year! Now more than ever, you need help in the kitchen without the stress. We are here to gift you with two slow cooker recipes for the holiday season! Make these for the family or take to the next gathering, either way you will be the hit of the party.
- 2 (1 oz) packages dry onion soup mix
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 2 lbs lean beef stew meat (cut up into bite sized pieces)
- 5 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
- 2 to 3 C baby carrots
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 2 (10 oz.) cans cream of celery soup
- 1 C ketchup
- In a large plastic bag, combine the dry onion soup mix and paprika. Add in meat and shake the bag to coat meat with the seasonings. (You may have to do this step in two batches, for all the meat to fit) Once meat is coated, spread out evenly into a greased 7-quart crock pot.
- Top meat evenly with diced potatoes, carrots and onion.
- Mix the cream of celery soup and ketchup in a small bowl. Pour mixture over the meat and vegetables.
- Cover crock pot with lid. Cook on low heat for 8 hours or until meat is cooked through and vegetables are tender.
- Stir to combine everything.
