I don’t typically make meals in the crock pot in the summer. We grill a lot, but I just might have to start using the crock pot more often. The house smelled delicious when I walked in the door and 20 minutes later we were eating.
In the crock pot place beef short ribs with
8oz tomato sauce
I have a concentrated chili pepper in a tube I used 2T, you could also use chili sauce
pinch of red pepper flakes
1 Cup beef broth
Turn on High for 6 hours
When we were in North Carolina, Lexington to be specific we had a BBQ Slaw that was delicious. It’s not your typical white cole slaw and since you know I don’t prefer mayonaise, making a cole slaw that has a different base sounded really good to me, I looked it up and Bobbie Flay had the recipe posted so I gave it a try. My husband LOVED it, it’s nice and spicy. Cayenne pepper, ketchup and vinegar is the base, with a touch of sugar salt and pepper.
I pressed Basmati rice in to small heart shaped tins and drizzled a touch of BBQ sauce on top, along side of some roasted corn I cut off the cob. We enjoyed a great dinner.
Do you use a crock pot in the summer, or mainly in the winter. What is your favorite crock pot dish, share it with me in the comments and feel free to link to it if you have it posted.
I am going to have to come up with some quick meals this week as I’m sure I’ll be busy preparing for
