I haven't always had the best of luck with slow cooked meals though, for a long time, or rather I should say, when I first started using one, I couldn't get it right.
The food seemed to be bland, or it was really watery, or sticking to the sides. It was always something, but as the time went on I became more confident and actually started the Slow Cooking Thursdays over on my main blog.
Since then, I have made so many good meals in the crockpot, and am still to this day enjoying trying new ones out.
A few weeks ago, Mari from My Little Corner of the World, shared this yummy recipe on my Slow Cooking Thursday. I love cubed steaks and so it went on the next menu plan.
It was a huge hit, very tasty and very simple to prepare. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
