Beef Stew VI
I thought this recipe was terrific, and agree that reviews should be based on the recipe as is, not altered. However, I made just a few minor changes. I browned the beef, then browned the onion, and carrots one after the other in the same skillet. Scraped the drippings, put in liquid beef stock and enough water, added the spices, heated to dissolve the drippings. Didn't brown the potatoes, but probably will next time. I used red potatoes, not peeled. The big difference was that I put everything in a crockpot and cooked it for about 4 hours. Delicious, tender meat, and great gravy. I added a little browning sauce to the gravy. My husband loved it. Rosemary is key!

Slow Cooker Pot Roast
I'm always looking for a way to spice up pot roast or beef stew without overdoing it. Instead of just using Italian Salad Dressing, I used Wishbone Robusto Italian. This has a real kick to it and was absolutely delicious. I didn't use the ranch dressing. Instead I used dry onion soup, brown gravy mix, Robusto Italian and some water. I don't measure, so I can't give numbers, just wing it. But, the Robusto made the difference.

Sherry's German Turkey
I was so excited because it was just the 2 of us and I bought a tiny turkey of 11 lbs and thought sure I could handle it. My history with turkey has not been good, to say the least. But, with no company, I was sure it would be different. I followed the instructions with the vege's and fruit. I even found "soulfull" seasoning (which turned out to be very tasty). Everything was going great, turkey should have been done in 3 hours and the sides had been timed accordingly. Well, guess what? My poor history with turkey's continues. I cooked the turkey upside down! The result was that the breast wasn't done, or brown. Had to cook the turkey for another hour and that threw all the sides off. My husband was watching football and didn't help, so I blamed him and that made me feel a little better. However, the end result was a delicious turkey, and if I ever attempt another turkey (which is doubtful), I will definitely use this recipe.
