The wild rice available at my local grocery stores is pretty pricey. When I travel north of Illinois into Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota I try buy wild rice in bulk. Much lower cost per lb. It keeps well in a tightly covered container.

1 cup wild rice, rinsed and drained
1 cup diced celery
1 cup 1/4 inch sliced carrots
8 oz. fresh mushroom, sliced
2 lbs. boneles round steak, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 large onion, diced
1 clove garlic minced
pinch of salt and dash of black pepper
1 tablespoon fresh minced or 1 teaspoon crushed dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried boquet garnic herb mix
3 cups beef broth, homemade or canned
Place ingredients in order listed in a slow cooker. DO NOT stir. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. Stir before serving. Serves 8.

try to buy wild rice only from a native seller NOT from a store. Chances are the store wild rice is all pretty and uniform sized..a HUGE indicator that its not gathered but cultivated, usually involving some added fertilizers to the water and making it not organic or very healthy. Contact any tribal office in MN and they will give you a list of names of natives selling naturally raised and gathered wild rice. If possible get the wild rice that has been wood parched, you will never ever even consider going back to that shiny black tasteless stuff in the plastic bags at the grocery store. I live in ND and I make the trip to MN every year for real wild rice,its worth it tastewise and healthwise

About Me
I love to develop new recipes. I have had 15 recipes published by Reiman publications, publishers of TASTE OF HOME magazine. I like to try at least one new recipe a week. My other interests that aren't listed above are running and horse racing. By profession I am a registered medical technologist currently working in microbiology at a local medical center.
My favorite things to cook
Soups. Main dishes for interesting evening meals. Simple baking like cookie jar cookies and quick breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I basically make Thanksgiving dinner like my mom did.
My cooking triumphs
Winning a runner up prize for my lasagne recipe when I worked for the Nestle corporation. (I was a part time R&D assistant for the Willy Wonka Candy Factory)
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make sweet and sour shrimp with deep fried shrimp. Coating came off the shrimp when I put the sauce on. My familiy refused to eat it. We were short of money then and it hurt to waste the food and then go get MacDonald's for dinner.
