Chicken Broth in a Slow Cooker

Submitted by: Micki Stout 
This one-step method needs to simmer for 8 to 10 hours, and yields approximately one quart of rich chicken stock to use in soups and sauces.

This is in the crock pot now, only I didn’t add the basil but a bay leaf. This is the easiest and most delicious way to make chicken broth, I swear. Have a happy day!

Hey Deb what do you use for the chicken? I used to get breast that needed lots of trimming and would use the extra, but now where we get them, they're already nice and trimmed.

I used the carcas of the rotisserie chicken I bought yesterday, and then shred the leftover chicken for the soup.

Oh, that is a great idea...now I remember people saying they did that.

Thin-sliced beef flank steak gets a quick fry in hot oil, then is simmered in a sweet soy-based sauce with fresh green onions for a dish that's like eating out at home.

I want to try something like this but I'm terrified of not cutting or cooking the meat correctly & ruining 2 huge flank steaks. I'm not good at preparing tougher cuts of meat. If I DO make it, I'm adding broccoli & serving over rice. IDK, I know what I want I just want someone else to make it for me so it turns out right :)

Morning Lisa. Cut it while it is still slightly frozen and cut against the grain. The recipe sounds good.

Saved - This looks yummy and I just bought flank steak yesterday. I usually buy flat iron steak but it's sometimes hard to get.

Sure Lisa. My son is sick so you will have to bring the meat to me.

This is for cooked flank steak but the method will be the same. If it is slightly frozen, it is easier to cut.

In a stir fry it would make me nervous also...just go for it. :)

Dec. 20, 2012 4:17 am
lisa, I agree with Iceemama. Put the flank steak in the freezer until it has ice crystals, but is not completely frozen. Then you can slice it across the grain very easily. The trick is to slice less than 1/4" thick. I usually aim for 1/8". The thin slices will cook very quickly, and they won't brown if the skillet is overcrowded.

I used to be afraid but I've been buying flank steak forever now. It's really easy as long as you cut it at the angle across the grain. And this recipe is delicious!

Morning ladies! I always buy top sirloin instead of flank steak. It's far more tender and it may even be about the same price, although I'm not sure of that. Deb's idea of flat iron steak is good too.

I put the meat for this in the crockpot last night. I always use the green enchilada sauce. This morning I just have to assemble the burritos. My son was sent home sick yesterday so I'm trying to decide if I should take him to the dr. today.

Hi icee! So sorry I have not responded to you yet. Life is getting away from me. You are in my thoughts however. Hope your little guy feels better soon. Sometimes when I am not sure if I should take my kid in I call the nurse at the Drs and ask if they think she should be seen. Hugs and be careful in that weather!

Oh yes Lindsay is right, there usually is a call line, our health insurance has a 24 hour nurse to call. Hope your son feels better soon.

Thanks everyone. I ended up taking him in. He has a sinus infection and an ear infection. He is snuggled up in a big chair now with his ipad. I love this recipe because it is so easy. I use the Las Palmas enchilada sauce in a big can. (Probably 28 oz.) I cook the meat in the crockpot and then assemble the burritos. I don't bake them. Just pop in the microwave until the cheese melts. So yummy and super easy.

I can relate. I’m still off kilter with my daughter moving. She’s been having a hard time with the moving company so I jumped in. I was calling three different people every fifteen minutes yesterday until I got an answer. I hate it when they force you to be a witch, but I will become one, and a very good one at that. :)

Sorry to hear about the moving problem...sometimes you just gotta be a witch...hope she gets all her stuff. I have lots to do also and now with temperatures dropping into the 8 30's tomorrow night, I have to make my makeshift green house and get all my plants into it. UGH! I may just give everybody their presents in the store bags. :)

The herb garden with parsley, chives, oregano and rosemary is covered up when the weather says it drops below 36 or so. I took pix on Christmas day last year and hoping to do the same this year. Neighbors tease me a bit about covering the space but they also come over to take whatever they want so we are all happy.

I didn't, Bibi, sorry. I am going to be out late tonight and I'm at work now, but I will post a link to the recipe later and let you know when I do. This actually turns out to be more of a soup than chili, but we loved it.
