Re: What's your fav. crock pot recipe?

I make Chili a lot, and it was actually kinda cold the other day.. so I made this...

1 1 1/2 pounds flank steak ( or any cheap cut of meat) Chopped into 1 inch pieces.
3 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 can of black beans
1 can of chili beans
1 can of kidney beans
1 large onion -- chopped
1 large green bell pepper -- chopped
1 large orange or red bell pepper -- chopped
2 large tomatoes -- chopped ( or two cans of canned tomatoes, and one small can of tomatoe paste)
1 hot chili pepper -- seeded If you want.
2-3 tbsp of garlic, chopped or from a jar

Now, you can either combine them all into the crockpot OR brown the steak separately. If you brown the steak -- you don't have to!!-- mix some flour and chili powder together and roll the pieces in it. That way you have some flavor on the steak. Remember, just BROWN them. Don't cook them.

And honestly.. I don't really measure that much anymore. It just all goes in the pot, gets stirred and checked in about 6 hours.

SO- Cook on low, 6-8 hours or high 3-4. ( Tastes better on the low...)
