I just put on a Chuck steak crockpot.
1lb of diced chuck steak, chopped onion, bacon, all browned together in a separate pot.
Drain and and combine a small can of button mushrooms (reserve juice) with some chopped shallots and carrots and add to the crock pot and then put browned steak, bacon and onion on top.
Put in a 'slurp' of Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon of brown sugar and a generous pinch of sea salt.
Mix a tin of chopped Italian herb tomatoes with a McCormick's Chuck Steak slow cooker base and the mushroom juice.

Pour the mixture through and give the pot a good stir to ensure even distribution.
Cook on low for 8 hours.
15 minutes before serving stir in half a cup of frozen peas.
And that, folks, will be our dinner tonight while we watch the "Red Dog" DVD (review to follow tomorrow). With Rhonda on seven evening shifts straight there'll be left-overs for my dinner for a couple of those evenings.
