I had some cubed beef in the freezer that I needed to use up, and I had a great recipe for it that seemed easy enough, but it was for the slow cooker. So I decided to make it sans the slow cooker. It turned out to be a wonderful, easy, quick dish. I'll give you the slow cooker version below, but as always, I will add in brackets what I did differently. Enjoy!
Slow Cooker Sweet & Sour Beef
2 lbs cubed beef
2 T veg oil
2 cans tomato sauce (I used 1 can)
2 c sliced carrots (I didn't have any so I left these out)
2 small onions cut in wedges
1 large green pepper cut in 1" pieces (I used red peppers)
1/2 c molasses
1/3 c cider vinegar
1/4 c sugar
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
In a large skillet, brown the meat in the oil. Transfer to the slow cooker. Add in remaining ingredients and stir well. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Serve over rice.
Easy enough - but unfortunately I didn't have the time to use a slow cooker, so I browned the meat, and then added the ingredients and simmered for about half an hour. It was delicious, and it doesn't get any easier then this!
