Simple Beef Soup

Friday, March 15, 2013 § 0

It was 90* in the Mojave today, so obviously I made wintery comfort food! 

1lb stew meat
1 sweet potato
3 stalks celery
3-4 carrots
1/2 onion
1 can stewed tomatoes
1/2 cup red wine
2 1/2 cups water
~1 cup mixed grains (I like Trader Joe's Harvest Grain Blend)

salt, pepper, garlic powder, italian seasoning, and worcestershire sauce to taste

Cut veggies into chunks and add all ingredients except the grains into the crock pot. Mine is pretty fast... I cooked this on low for 3 hours, added the mixed grains, and cooked for 45 more minutes. I like the Italian seasoning, but use whatever you like. Serve with crusty sourdough on the side!
