Knockout, home-made dinner and TBL night!

Fajita Beef Stew

  • 2 – 1/2 lbs. boneless beef top round steak
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 14 oz. can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 oz. envelope fajita seasoning mix
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1″ pieces
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into 1″ pieces
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup water

Trim excess fat from beef and cut into 2″ pieces. Combine onion & garlic into a 4-5 quart slow cooker. Mix seasoning mix and undrained tomatoes and pour over beef. Place peppers on top. Cover crockpot and cook on low for 7-9 hours until beef is tender. Side note: I have a 6 or 8 quart crockpot… the food cooked much quicker!

Combine flour with water in a small bowl and stir well. Add gradually to crockpot. Cover slow cooker and cook on high for 15-20 minutes until thickened.

I made one of these mexican rice mixes! Next time I’ll do regular brown rice!

This was one easy meal! Wonderful for a busy Tuesday night πŸ™‚

A side salad and a glass of Fat Cat Pinot Giorgio! What a perfect meal for a cold night πŸ™‚

Big News in the Coffee Department

The Keurig has died.. and has been replaced with a French Press. I feel in love with the French Press while I was in Newport a few weeks ago…. posted here!Β I’m super excited to make a huge cup of coffee in the morning!

Good bye Keurig… HELLO French Press!
