Ok, here I go again. My Chicken Cacciatore was such a success, I’m onto my next slow cooker adventure.
I love the slow cooker. It is so easy. Lots of recipes ask you to brown things up first, fry onions and garlic…whatever. I’m not doing that. I’m just throwing it all in and turning it on. I know this makes me a kitchen heretic, but hey, its easy. If it tastes good at the end, I don’t much care. Infact I’m dancing jigs.
So here goes…
Hungarian Goulash – in the slow cooker
1kg beef – chuck or casserole steak, trimmed and cut into 3cm pieces. 1 large brown onion, thinly sliced 1 capsicum, chopped 2 garlic cloves 1 tablespoon paprika 425g can condensed tomato soup 200 gram button mushrooms
Serve with rice, pasta or mashed potato.
Well, the chuck steak cost me $10.32 for just over 1 kilo. I could have gotten it cheaper, but I bought it already chopped, because my rheumatoid arthritis is not being so kind to me today. I also used garlic out of a jar for the same reasons! I had onions, capsicum and garlic. The mushrooms were $2 and the can of soup was $2.10. I also threw in some broccoli and carrots, to get some more vegetables in my kids diets. So all up, I’d say the ingredients cost around $18.00. It will feed the three of us at least twice. So $9.00 per meal. $3.00 per serve. Good value!
