2-3 lbs. venison (or as much as you like)
1 lg. onion
1 lg. bell pepper
2 cans mushroom soup
2 cans water
Salt to taste
Brown venison in small amount of shortening. Saute onion and pepper in drippings. Add enough flour to drippings to make a brown gravy. Use soup in the gravy instead of water. Pour the browned venison, pepper and onion, mushroom gravy, 2 cans of water and salt into a slow cooker. Cook all day or put it on at night and cook overnight.
2 cans (10 3/4 oz each) condensed cream of celery soup
2 c. grated sharp process cheese
1 c. chunked cooked lobster
1/2 c. chopped cooked shrimp
1/2 c. chopped cooked crab meat
1/4 c. finely chopped, cooked scallops
dash cayenne pepper
1 loaf of French bread, cut into 1 inch cubes
Combine all ingredients except bread cubes in lightly greased Crock-Pot; stir thoroughly. Cover and cook on High for 1 hour or until cheese is melted. Turn to Low for serving. Using fondue forks, dip bread cubes into fondue.
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 lbs lamb shoulder or leg, trimed, cubed and cut into 1 inch pieces
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp tarragon
1/4 cup butter
1/8 tsp caraway seeds
2 tbls beef broth
2 tsp white wine
1 cup sour cream
Mix the flour, salt, pepper thyme and tarragon in a small bowl. Coat the lamb cubes in the flour mix and brown in the butter in a saute pan. In the stoneware, mix the caraway seeds, beef broth, onion, lemon juice and wine. Add the lamb. Cover and cook on LOW for 10 to 12 hours. Add the sour cream during the last 15 minutes of cooking.
4 cups regular brown lentils
2 onions, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon minced ginger
4 tablespoons butter (optional)
5 tablespoons red curry paste
1 tablespoon garam masala
1½ teaspoon turmeric
2 teaspoon sugar
a few good shakes of cayenne pepper
2 cans tomato puree (29 ounces each)
1 teaspoon salt plus more to taste
½ cup coconut milk or cream
cilantro for garnishing
rice for serving
Rinse the lentils and place them in a large crockpot. Add the diced onions, garlic, ginger, butter, curry paste, garam masala, turmeric, sugar, and cayenne. Stir to combine.
Pour just 1 can of tomato puree over the lentils. Re-fill the can with water twice and add to the crockpot. Stir to make sure that the lentils are covered with liquid. Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 7-8 hours.
Check once or twice during cooking to add more water or tomato puree if the lentils are soaking up all the liquid. The amount of water or tomato puree you add depends on how soupy your want your lentils to be. For me, 1½ cans of tomato puree plus the two cans of water was perfect. Taste and season with salt. Lentils will be soft when they are done cooking.
Stir in the coconut milk and sprinkle with cilantro just before serving. Serve over rice or naan bread.
