Crockpot BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

Yesterday, I was sent this gem of a recipe from a close friend. She knows I love crockpot/slow cooker based recipes. For those needing something quick to make this recipe is equally for you! Having looked over the recipe, I did make some slight adjustments which you will find below. A link to the original recipe, like normal, can be found at the bottom of the page. Wishing you each a beautiful Wednesday!

  1. Place everything into your slow cooker (except for the sandwich buns and coleslaw) and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or until the chicken shreds very easily.

Slow Cooker Poor Man’s Stew

Happy March Everyone! I’m excited to announce that I am back in full swing. The past few months have been hard ones as I have been learning to adjust to my new condition. For those new to my blog, a few months ago, I was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease known as TCD (Tarlov Cyst Disease). Due to this condition, I have had to make adjustments to my diet. One of my favorite meals to make so far; however, is the Poor Man’s Stew or Traveler’s Stew as my grandma called it. Quick to make and only requiring a few ingredients this recipe has been a lifesaver (medical bills are not cheap). One thing I personally love is the flavor of the soup. There are so many options when it comes to seasonings and the texture of this soup is lovely! Enough of my rambling though, let’s get to the good stuff!

Slow Cooker Poor Man’s Stew

Ingredients:

1lb. Ground Beef (browned and drained) *I personally seasoned before browning*

1 1/2lbs. Potatoes (diced large)

3 Carrots (sliced)

1 Onion (diced)

1 Garlic Clove (minced) *Garlic Powder works just as good!*

6 oz. can of Tomato Paste

2 cups. Water

1 tsp. Salt

1/4 tsp. Pepper

1 tsp. Onion Powder

1 tsp. Dried Oregano

*I personally added 1tsp. Paprika & Creole Seasoning*

Directions:

  1. Add cook ground beef, potatoes, carrots and onions to a 5-quart and/or larger slow cooker.

2. Take a small bowl and mix tomato paste and seasonings. Pour over mixture over everything already in the slow cooker.

3. Allow to cook for 7hrs without removing lid.

4. Serve with buttered sandwich bread. * I omitted the bread and had saltine crackers instead*

Stuffed Peppers Soup

Lately the temperature decided to make a massive drop, and with that I decided it was perfect soup weather. One of my favorites to make is Stuffed Peppers Soup. Packed with flavor this soup is easy to make and will truly warm your soul. Personally, I think this soup pairs nicely with fresh made biscuits. The recipe I will be sharing with you all today is a slow cooker recipe. Please set aside 8 hours to allow everything to cook properly. I promise it is worth it! For more visual learners, I will post a link to a YouTube video which shows how to make the soup. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday!
