This dish is seriously simple to make and will make the meat eater in your household happy as a pig in mud (okay, that’s not really how that expression goes but you get the point. 😉 ). This is one of those “dump” meals – you know where you just literally throw all the ingredients in the crockpot, press low, and walk away.
For this dump meal, you can get everything you need from Aldi for about $10 (we bought a small skirt steak instead of the sirloin steak the original recipe calls for) and you can even sub out the store bought canned tomatoes for ones you’ve canned yourself! We paired this stew with my homemade garlic breadsticks and it was super delicious and filling.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, yes my kids did eat this! For stews, I just usually drain the juice and let my kids eat the whole stuff with no juice. They never know the difference and they love it!
