Done and cooking. I need to invest in a decent knife, it took forever to trim and cube the chuck roast. I need Advil now.....

You cube your own stew meat? Man, good for you. I buy those packets of cubed beef labeled "stew meat" (of all things). But I've had good luck using cooking shears on beef, too if you aren't all worried about making "cube" shaped pieces.

I'm a huge crock pot fan but was burning out on traditional stew. If you want to mix it up, use two cans condensed cream o' mushroom soap and one packet of onion soup mix (dry). It creates sort of a gravy-ish beef that's good on brown rice ...

Normally I buy the "stew meat" too, but this is a new recipe I'm trying, it called for a chuck roast cut up. Probably no difference.

Report back on your success! For a good recipe, I suppose I could even cut up my own beef! :)

I had leftover pizza. I can't remember when it was leftover from, so it was probably not very bright to eat it. Whatevs.

I made some wheat gluten chicken tonight for some chicken pot pie, which I'll be making tomorrow night. Not sure how it'll turn out, but we'll see... it's for a non-vegetarian who is afraid of vegetarian fare, so we might be ordering a pizza.

A nice day to slow cook dinner here too. I made this tonight (started around 1pm, did the dry rub last night):

Pretty good,it'll be a future repeat for sure. I couldn't find anything less than an 8lb pork shoulder (receipt called for 4lb), so I went w/ the butcher recommendation of a 4lb center cut section, still mighty tasty (and had a cool 4 section vertebrae that I removed before pulling apart).

Had 750ml of this before hand while watching ATOC:

Not that you are asking, but I have a Wustof chefs and a global Asian chefs. the global is good for keeping and edge, sharpening, and quick work. But it lacks a shoulder/front bolster. If you do large amounts of cutting at once, you get a nasty blister on the pointer finger at the joint with your palm.

I did some slow cookin' this weekend too. Made some simple black bean soup (took about 3 hours to cook the beans on the stove) to which I added a fine puree of avocado, lime juice and a little extra virgin olive oil. The avocado puree gives the soup a nice silky character, not to mention great flavor. Topped it with feta cheese.

Sliced up a NY steak into small strips and fried it up in some sesame oil with some onion and garlic. Then dumped it over some lettuce, tomato and diced piece of string cheese, poured in some dressing..... Bingo, dinner.....

OH, c'mon bro. I've put together plenty of swankier meals, but in the real life world of work and other obligations, the "tasty concoction in the crock pot" absolutely gets me by at least one night per week in the winter Have mercy!

Come on yourself. That sounds like a melted bouillon cube.

Aren't you supposed to begin with low sodium items when you're reducing? Cans of condensed soup, onion soup powder? Do deer lick you when you're out hiking?
