There's nothing better than hot soup on a cold day. And considering the winter freeze that most of the country has endured the past few months, we still have a bit of fridgit temperatures to come. So why not make a tasty and healthful soup in your slow cooker? All you need are five ingredients (I'm not counting the stuff you already have in your cupboard).
4 medium red potatoes
1-1/2 lbs. beef stew meat
1/3 cup flour
salt and pepper to taste
14 oz. can diced tomatoes, undrained
2 cups water
3 cups frozen stir fry bell peppers and onions
Scrub potatoes and cut each into quarters. Place in bottom of 4 quart slow cooker. Mix flour, salt and pepper and toss with beef to coat. Add to crockpot. Add undrained tomatoes and water and stir.
Cover crockpot and cook on low for 7-8 hours until beef and potatoes are tender. Add stir fry vegetables. Cover and cook on low for 30-40 minutes until vegetables are hot and tender.
Serve with a nice side salad and crusty French bread.
