heres a couple of my fav recipes

here are a few that I like (I like it simple and my oven is broken so I cook with my crock pot mostly)

Sloppy Joes:

1lb Lean ground beef
1 medium onion
2/3 cup ketchup
1/4 cup water
1 Tbsp vinegar any kind
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp mustard
1/4 tsp garlic powder
6 drops hot pepper sauce

brown the beef; drain fat; turn beef to pan and add onions; cook for about 2 minutes; add remaining ingredients (I usually put them in a bowl while the beef is browning) and simmer for about 10 minutes and viola!

Beef Brisket with barbecue sauce (crockpot)

2.5 lb beef brisket (they have them at Giant)
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp vinegar
1 tsp beef bouillon granules
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
2 cloves garlic minced

combine ingredients and reserve 1/2 cup for sauce; in a 3.5-4 quart crockpot cook on low for 8-10hrs or on high for 3-5 hrs for a 5-6 quart cooker double the liquid ingredients

For the sauce:
1/2 cup ketchep
2 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp butter
the 1/2 liquid leftover

simply heat the sauce ingredients and you have a very delicious bbq sauce!

Beef Stew

12 oz beef stew meat (lean)
1 cup water
1 med. onion cut into thin wedges
1 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
3 cups vegie juice
1.5 tsp beef boullion
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dired marjoram
1/4 tsp black pepper
3 cups cubed potatoes
1 small can of green beans
1 small can of carrotts (or 1 cup of each if you use frozen or fresh)

brown beef, and add all ingredients to the crockpot and cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 3-5 or untill potatoes and vegies are tender.
