The holidays are over and life is back to normal. Cold weather and darkness comes early in the evening, so when arriving home from work, it is nice to walk into the house smelling a delicious meal that has been cooking all day in your crock pot/slow cooker.
The recipe below is quick to put together in the morning, leaving only a minimal of work to be done in the evening to finish up your dinner.
To round out your dinner, prepare steamed broccoli and cauliflower seasoned with a bit of butter and lemon juice along with some quick baked brown & serve rolls.
