Beef Quinoa Stew
Mushrooms and Onions
At least the kids think so anyway. But we all know better.
So here is the fabulous recipe that I will surely make again and again.
Put the following ingredients in a gallon sized ziplock bag and seal:
2 pounds beef chuck, trimmed of excess fat and cut into thin slices (about 1/2 inch thick and 3 inches long)
1 large onion, chopped
1 pound mushrooms trimmed and quartered
Write on the outside of this bag: Low 8 hrs - high 6. Add second bag at hour 4.
In another gallon sized ziplock add the following:
16oz mixed frozen veggies (carrots, corn, beans, etc)
15oz canned diced potatoes (or fresh, make sure they are diced small)
1.5 cups of Quinoa
1 teaspoons of pepper
On the outside of this bag, write: Add to crockpot at hour 4 with 4-5 cups of beef broth.
This soup is hearty and seriously delicious. If you use a low sodium beef broth, be sure to add some salt, but I didn't and it didn't need any.
