Beef and Black Eyed Peas

Sunday, September 11, 2011

The crockpot does wonders for lean cuts of beef, which can be tough and chewy. A day in the crockpot makes it meltingly tender. The beauty of this all-in-one meal is that beef is just one part of this stew, so you really don't need to use more than 3/4 of a pound to feed six people. Added protein and fiber comes from the black-eyed peas.
