Beefy Cabbage Stew
This was an incredibly delicious stew....more like a soup tho to me but nevertheless, yummy! I made up the greek seasoning with a recipe I found at this site. It makes a lot so we'll eat it another night too and won't mind at all! Lots of good flavor and so easy to make!

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup
I have made another lentil soup recipe for many years that is also at this site. Tried this one and it's just as good but in a slightly different way. I like that it's done in the crock pot. I got it going at 7:30 am and put on high for about 45 mins and then let cook on low till 4:30. I put on the table to start cooling. At 5:00 it was still pretty hot. It was cooked perfectly so I'd say mine only took 9 hrs of cooking. I did not put just 8 tsps of tomato sauce as recipe calls for and wondered if that was a typo. I put a whole 8 oz can and that worked well. I never had to add any other liquid and the soup was just the right thickness. I used some leftover spiral ham which flavored it nicely. Great flavor, easy to make, hearty soup! This is definitely a keeper!

Philly Steak Sandwich
I have made these sandwiches twice now and they were WONDERFUL! I don't care if they are authentic or not, they are just delicious. First time I used leftover cooked rib-eye steak that my husband sliced super thin with an electric knife. I put the pieces in a ziploc bag with all the spices to let marinate. 2nd time I made, I used frozen steak-ums and that worked well too; however I think the rib-eye was just a little better. Do not skimp on the bread. I bought very nice, fresh hoagie rolls from our store's bakery and it really makes them. The combination of spices and meat, cheese, etc just makes for a super delicious sandwich. Oh and first time I used swiss cheese as recipe calls for and 2nd time I used provolone. We actually liked the swiss better as it has more flavor. I am so glad I found this recipe when I was looking for a way to use up a leftover steak! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!
