Christmas quilt and Crockpot Recipe

Karen, who made the smaller Christmas wallhanging, also made a bed quilt to match. As you can see, it was nice and sunny the day I took the photos.

If you decide that
TODAY IS A SEWING DAY FOR ME, here is a recipe for the crockpot. Crank 'er up on your coffee break, then fuggeddabuddit.

1 1/2 lb (
or .7 kg if yer Canadian, eh?) boneless chuck steak 1 1/2" thick
1 clove garlic peeled and minced
1/4 c. wine vinegar
2 Tb. brown sugar
1 tsp. paprika
2 Tb. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 c. ketchup
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
1 1/2 c. celery, thinly sliced

1 med. onion, cut in half, then all thinly sliced
beef broth to thin, if necessary
  • Cut the beef across the grain into slices 1" wide and place in the crock. Combine the next 9 ingredients then add to the meat.
  • Set the cook cycle for 5 - 6 hours, on low if you have a choice.
  • About 1 1/2 hours before the time is up (your afternoon coffee break), add the celery and onions. If the liquid seems to be too thick, add some beef broth.
When done, the meat will just fall apart. Serve over mashed potatoes or on crusty dinner rolls. Add a salad or a couple veggies. And don't forget the glass of red wine for the cook, who worked sooo hard.
