A great rainy day meal

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

Last night, during the beginnings of Hurricane Igor, we went for a run with the 10 km clinic.

It was raining HEAVILY and we were all soaked through by the time we got back to the running room in the dark. It was a lucky coincidence that we had supper ready and waiting for us in the slow cooker for us when we got home.

It was a new recipe, so I had been hoping it would turn out OK. Turns out, it's probably my favourite slow cooker recipe so far!

Slow Cooker Provencal Beef Stew
Here's the Recipe (source: Kraft Canada)

1 lb. (450 g) boneless stewing beef, cubed
3 Tbsp. Flour
1 lb. (450 g) sweet potatoes (2 large), peeled, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 can (28 fl oz/796 mL) no-salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained
1 Zucchini, cut into 1-inch-thick slices
1 Onion, chopped
4 cloves Garlic, minced
1/2 cup 25%-less-sodium beef broth
1/4 cup Kraft Calorie-Wise Sun-Dried Tomato & Oregano Dressing
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil

Toss beef with flour in slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients except basil. Cover with lid. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Stir in Basil just before serving.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much flavour this had!
The slow cooker is one of our best friends on running nights - no worrying about what to eat when you get home late!
