Sun-Dried Tomato, Spinach Beef

Friday, 25 April 2014

This is one of those recipes I had little hope for but it turned out delicious! I wanted to make a slow cooker dish so that I would have lots of time to get started on painting the mudroom (which I did) I like adding spinach to things because it wilts and so doesn't take up a lot of space in a dish but is packed with health.
I prepared a lot of this meal the night before. I chopped the onion and carrots and sliced the sun-dried tomatoes. I put all those ingredients in the slow cooker ceramic and put it in the fridge.
