Make a batch of corn bread or some biscuits, and you’ve got a great winter meal. I’ve also used leftover smoked Italian sausage instead of ham.
3 small carrots, sliced
1 small onion, sliced
2 small potatoes, diced
2 T. parsley, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
3 tsp. beef bouillon granules, or 3 beef bouillon cubes
1 1/4 tsp. dried basil
1 1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 – 16 oz. can red kidney beans, undrained
3 C. water
1 – 14 1/2 oz, can stewed tomatoes, with juice
1 C. cooked ham, diced
- Layer carrots, onions, potatoes, parsley, garlic, beef bouillon, basil, salt, pepper and kidney beans in slow cooker. DO NOT STIR.
- Add water. Cover. Cook on low 8 to 9 hours, or on high 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 hours, until vegetables are tender.
- Stir in tomatoes and meat. Cover and cook on high 10 to 15 minutes.
