Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
Made changes based on Sara's suggestions (Aug. 11, 2007) & some of my own. With those changes, it's 5 stars. Double recipe & slow cook it the day before up to the last hour, which allows flavours to combine better. The next day, add sour cream, cream cheese & parsley mixture, which you can make day before & add to slow cooker the last hour of cooking. Use 3 pounds top sirloin & ask butcher to cut across grain into 1/2" x 2" strips, resulting in fork tender meat. In large ziploc bag, mix 3 tablespoons flour, 1½ teaspoons salt, & ½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper. Add meat in batches & shake to coat. Sear meat on medium/high in 1½ tablespoons each of canola oil & butter to bring out flavour. For a "doubled" recipe, use "1/2" cup red wine instead of white & omit water, 2 teaspoons chopped green onion "tops" instead of dry chives (didn't have), 3 beef bouillon cubes, 2 tablespoons Worcestershire, 2 teaspoons chopped garlic from a jar, 2 chopped onions (20 to 24 ounces), 2 tablespoons flour, 2 cans cream of mushroom soup, 16 ounces baby bella (cremini) mushrooms instead of canned. Add 6 ounces softened light cream cheese blended into only 16 ounces fat free sour cream with 1 cup chopped fresh parsley. In last ½ hour, remove ½ cup of broth & mix with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch, which is added back to slow cooker, to thicken.

Irish-Style Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
Sorry but this lacked flavour even with the additions I made below. I recommend only using 13 ounces of broth & even more spices then I used. I won't be making this again as I prefer my Old Fashioned Beef Stew from Better Homes & Gardens. Here's what I did: I used lamb shoulder in 2" cubes, which was very tender. I increased the carrots to 2 & 1/2 & added 1 parsnip. I used 1/2 of a large onion (6 ounced diced) in addition to the sauteed onion below. I added 1/2 teaspoon dry rosemary, 1/2 tablespoon Italian seasoning, more salt & fresh ground pepper. In dutch oven, I sauteed 1/2 of a large onion (6 ounces chopped) in 1/2 tablespoon each of butter & olive oil over med. heat, till translucent. I then added 3/4 teaspoon chopped garlic from jar & sauted it just until garlic started to smell. I added the lamb & browned it for 3 minutes. 15 minutes before serving, I removed ½ cup of broth & mixed with 2 tablespoons cornstarch, to make gravy.

Sorry, I haven't tried this yet. I made a mistake & rated this instead of the one by Kittencal from RecipeZaar.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
This recipe was so easy that our 10 year old daughter made it twice all by herself. She took one batch to school and there were no leftovers. The outside is crispy and the inside stayed chewy even the next day, when they were all devoured. Thanks Beth!
