    We have always had a Crock Pot around to use for certain meals.

    Corned Beef & Cabbage (with carrots & onions) being one of our faves.
    Another of our favorites is slow cooked spicy beef.

    1lb. or so of fat trimmed beef round cubes
    3 tablespoons of undiluted pineapple juice concentrate
    1 onion, 1 clove garlic, 1 chopped jalapeno pepper
    1 tablespoon each of yellow mustard and light soy sauce
    1 teaspoon of ground coriander and chopped fresh ginger
    half teaspoon of ground cumin

    Combine all ingredients and cook on low until done.

    I love this brisket recipe...
    (Other meats will do for sub)
    For smaller crockpots just do one layer..

    I get a BIG piece of beef brisket. I cut in in half and sear/brown both sides of both halfs in a skillet...
    Put aside...

    Then I put a bunch of onions coarsely chopped on the bottom of the Crockpot.
    A can of Stewed Tomatoes on top of the Onions. Some red pepper flakes on top of the tomatoes...
    Add one piece of meat about the size of the pot opening...
    Repeat... Onions, Stewies, Flakies, Brisket...
    Fresh black pepper...
    Smashed garlic cloves tossed in... Herbs, Worcestershire...

    Cover with bouillon cube chicken broth and cook for a bunch of hours...
    The bouillon has salt so don't over-do it with extra added salt...

    When the meat totally surrenders, serve the meat sliced cross grain, tomatoey broth, and onions
    in a bowl with creamy cheesed-herbed polenta... (easy)

    The meat-broth-polenta combo is from Pluto!
    It'll remind you of the best home cooking you ever had.
