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.
