My friends on the Ghetto Pot Roast thread really got me inspired to cook. I will tell you that it is quite fun. By using the crockpot, I can just put all the ingredients in and let it do it's stuff. It's very easy. I will give a report with photos later today. So, today's recipe is this:
1 quart beef broth
6 cloves garlic (squeezed through a garlic press)
1/2 onion (chopped finely)
3 stalks celery (diced)
1 can diced tomatoes---or 1 small can sliced beets
1lb kielbasa (cut into slices)
1 cup brown rice
1 tbsp rosemary leaves (a 4 inch sprig)
1 tbsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp curry powder
2 small sage leaves (finely cut)
I still have the scent of the spices on my fingers. What Fun!

So it's you and I who are keeping the food forum thread afloat, and it's dburt and I who are keeping the A Funny Thing Happened forum thread alive. I think that it is only appropriate that you, Dennis, give us a funny story on that thread, and that dburt give us a recipe on this forum. SO THERE!!!
Ok here it is, the copycat creation. First the tools. A plastic chopping surface, easy to clean but dulls blades way faster than wood. Also a custom made knife.
I went shopping at local store that has a lot of Russian food (because they had the best sale on beer) they had two kinds of kielbasa so I used some of both, they call it Kielbassy. I also used fresh beets. I doubled all the ingredients because I have a big CROCK and don't want to waste electricity. This recipe is a good one, it tasted great. I have all week to figure out what to cook next.
Next, a few veggies.
8 hours later on low. Yummy!
Feast your eyes on this closeup.
1Lb lean burger-
1/2 an onion cut thin
6-8 cloves of garlic chopped fine
1 can diced tomatoes, 1 good big tbsp of dried basil or oregano, 1 or 2 tbsp chili powder, 1 cup barley , 1 carrot, shredded, 1 stalk of broccoli cut small,
and 3 quarts beef broth.
I know that sounds like a lot of broth, but the barley will soak up at least 6 cups of liquid if it's good barley.
Rudy, look for pics tomorrow night, Dennis, try the recipe and fine tune it for me please.
PS-why so happy?, keeping busy!
