Seems to be a theme today. It's been in the 20's here, I'm not opposed to grilling in this weather, but it's too cold to eat outside on my deck. So, the slow-cooker is getting some use along with a few Trans-Siberian Orchestra albums.

Home-made beef stew made with 4lbs chuck roast, carrots, celery, peas, mushrooms, onions, red potatoes, and anything else I could fit in there. Also, some Italian bread and Great Lakes' Christmas Ale.

Fightin' off the frozen hordes with a suppressed DDMK18 loaded with M855 and a Springfield TRP railed operator. In the unlikely chance I need to cut into the succulent beef after a 7 hour stew time, there is a Hinderer XM-18 waiting.

We have completely identical rifles, OP so you get a 10 for good taste.

You guys are trying to kill me tonight with your dinner pictures and guns laying incorrectly. If your a left-hander, your gun should be laying on its other side, for easy pickup. If you're a right-hander, why is it on the left hand side of the table?

-1 for the peas.

+1 for the .45

Can't fault the rest.

10/10

I'm right-handed, and there is a gun on each side of the table because stacking everything on the right side looks stupid.

Happy to share, it's not mine. I got it from a slow-cooker recipe book from America's test kitchen.

It starts with a chopped large onion, a 1/4 cup tomato paste, 1tsp thyme, and 6 cloves garlic. Sweat that out in a pan for 8-ish minutes, add 1/3 cup flour and stir for a minute, add 1.5 cups chicken stock, then transfer to slow cooker. Chop up about 5 medium red potatoes, 3 sticks of celery, 1lbs baby carrots, 8 oz. mushrooms and wrap in a foil packet. Add 1.5 cups beef stock as well as S&P to taste and 2 bay leaves to the main mixture.

The veggies actually go in a foil pack on top of everything else (somewhat separate), and I throw them in to the main mixture 1 hour before completion. This is part of the America's test kitchen stuff I don't understand, other than it works. I am guessing it is to allow the beef to have time to become really tender, without the rest of it falling apart from the slow cooker. Along with the veggies from the foil packet, I add 2 cups of frozen peas.

All told I cooked for 6.5 hours on the slow cooker.

It does ok, but I'll admit it's not really a soup bowl.
