A Slow Cooker And Some Asian Spices Make A Delicoius Stew
Some wonderful meals can be made with a slow cooker: Just throw your favorite ingredients in, turn it on, and go about your business for the day. A few hours later, dinner's ready and the best part is that you don't have to be at the stove all day.
I love my slow cooker, it saves me tons of time and wonderful meals always come from it. There are so many recipes I want to make, but with a toddler, I just don't have the time to stand over the stove stirring a pot for hours. So, any time a recipe calls for a slow cooker, I'm in.
Stew is a common choice for a slow cooker because the beef needs to cook for several hours before it can be served. Then you can either add the vegetables for the last hour or throw them in at the start so they're nice and tender. And with so many stew recipes, you could easily leave your slow cooker out all month and never have the same stew twice.
This Asian beef stew is a delicious choice for the slow cooker. It's the hoisin sauce and Chinese five spice powder that give it that Chinese flair and make it a nice alternative to your standard beef stew.
