French Dip Sandwiches in the Slow Cooker

4 ingredients (6 if you count the cheese and buns) + 1 slow cooker = 1 splendiferous dinner.  And, in case you wondered, splendiferous is in the online thesaurus.  It’s a more funtastic word than “good”, don’t you think?

I used cube steaks to make these sandwiches, but you can use round steak or another cut if you like.  Here’s what you’ll need: [Read more…]

Ingredient Spotlight: Beef/Pork Roast

This post is part of a new series where you get to link up your recipes! Each week I’ll focus on a different common pantry ingredient. I’ll link to a few of my recipes that feature the ingredient and then give you a chance to link up to your blog.

{Apologies to those of you who don’t like to look at raw meat.  I’m going to have to start choosing more photogenic foods for Ingredient Spotlight.}

I tossed a beef roast in the slow cooker yesterday morning to cook all day. Roasts and slow cookers are a natural combination.  The broth and meat provided the base of the Beef Vegetable Soup we’re having for dinner tonight.

I don’t often cook a pot roast, but I do like using roasts for sandwiches, bbq, soup etc. One of these days, I’d like to do an honest to goodness pot roast, in the oven. Maybe with some wine, herbs and veggies. Anyone have a recipe like that to share?

Here are a few recipes that I have made using roast: [Read more…]

Southwestern Steak and Cornbread Dressing in the Slow Cooker

I love a good slow cooker recipe, especially one that has just 4 ingredients.

This has the flavors of Southwest Beef Rolls, but it’s much easier.  A box of cornbread stuffing mix and can of tomatoes with green chilis make the recipe more like assembling and less like cooking.  I’m all about easy, so that works for me! [Read more…]

Hamburger Stroganoff

This is a guest post from Ashley at AP Freewriting 101. If you are interested in guest posting on Eat at Home, contact me with your ideas.

I have a LOT on my plate during any given day:

  • Taking care of my kids: 23mo boy and 3.5yo girl
  • Working on my school work as I attempt to complete a two-year Masters degree program in one-year
  • Homeschooling my advanced preschooler
  • Blogging encouragement to women
  • Attempting to keep my house clean and my husband fed

By the time dinner rolls around, I’m pretty beat. I don’t want to spend much time in the kitchen at the end of a tiring day, and yet I don’t want to pay a hefty price for carry-out food. My solution? Quick, easy, and inexpensive pantry meals. [Read more…]

Grilled Round Steak with Red Wine Vinegar and Homemade Seasoned Salt

grilled round steak with red wine vinegar and homemade seasoned salt done

We rarely eat steak.  It’s more of a money issue than anything else.  Yesterday I bought this round steak at the store.  Sure, it’s not NY Strip or fillet mignon (my fav) but it’s still beef on the grill.

I decided to do a quick marinade and rub with red wine vinegar and homemade seasoned salt.  The steak tasted as flavorful as it was quick to fix.

This is a bit of a tangent, but I’m loving the homemade seasoned salt.  It’s perfect on all kinds of foods.  You’ll see more recipes in the future (like tomorrow) that feature this new favorite seasoning.

Easy Pepper Steak in the Slow Cooker

I printed this off the web so many years ago, that I can’t remember where it came from exactly.  Everything gets tossed in the slow cooker together. Super easy.  I love a good crockpot meal!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Easy Meatball Subs

I’m not sure why I never thought of doing this before.  It was so quick and simple.  My boys were very happy and the rest of us liked the subs too.  I used frozen meatballs and a jar of spaghetti sauce, so it just can’t get any easier. Perfect for a busy night. [Read more…]

Slow Cooker Beef Vegetable Soup

So, I made up a new soup recipe.  I wanted a beef vegetable soup that I could just throw the ingredients in the crockpot and let it all cook together.  Most of the beef vegetable soups I’ve seen involve cooking the beef first and then adding it to the soup.  I was feeling too lazy for that.  Here’s what I came up with.  Substitute as needed. [Read more…]

Smothered Steak with Mushrooms and Onions

I really liked this Smothered Steak.  One of my foodie resolutions was to cook with fresh mushrooms.  They aren’t my favorite food, but I’ve been trying to learn to like them.  They were good in this dish and easy to cook with.

This recipe makes enough that, depending on your family size, you can probably eat dinner the night you make it and still put some in the freezer for later.  I froze the whole recipe.  The gravy was so smooth and nice when I first made it, but it separated a bit in the freezing/reheating process.  It still tasted great though.

Salsa Verde Steak in the Slow Cooker

This is so good and easy.  A delicious Mexican meal that cooks in a crockpot – 2 of my favorite things.  I adapted the recipe from The Ungourmet.
