We have some pretty long days during our week so getting home in time to prepare a home-cooked dinner is tricky. Not wanting to eat out all the time, I am working on some plug and cook meals in our automated machines. Here’s one that I made recently with great success…
I borrowed the basic recipe from Genius Kitchen and modified all the ingredients I didn’t have:
- 2 tomatoes, sliced into eighths
- 2 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch slices
- 2 -3lbs boneless chuck roast
- a few shakes of black pepper
- 1 tbsp of Massel Beef Stock Powder
- 2 x (10 3/4 ounce/ 315ml) cans of Campbell’s soup (I used whatever variants we had on hand)
Chuck everything into the slow cooker about lunch time and set it to “auto” function. When you get home, take out the chuck roast, remove the string and cut it up in to cubes. Put it back into the slow cooker and serve when ready.
- Add other vegetables – like potatoes, zucchini, and/or onions.
- Use beef or chicken broth instead of canned soup if you prefer.
- Throw in some cooked pasta.
I’ve made this in different variations just throwing in whatever ingredients I had lying around the house and it’s been a hit with the boys. Definitely an easy win.
