Ellie Krieger’s food philosophy has longevity when it comes to healthy eating.  I have been a fan since her Food Network days.  As food trends come and go, she uses her education and award-winning recipes to marry deliciously healthy.

One Ellie lesson has remained with me. Always measure the oil when you saute;

fat and calories really add up if you 'free pour'.

I finally adapted her Hungarian Beef Stew featured this past winter to the slow cooker by browning the beef in batches and loading the meat into the ceramic vessel;

proceeding as the recipe calls.

 

Of course, I used twice the caraway and added a tablespoon of Red Boat My flavor weapon for long simmering radical gusto.

The sauce seemed thin to me so I took half of it out of the slow cooker; simmered and reduced it before adding it back to the stew.

Cook the stew for 6-7 hours on high for a deep rich flavor.

Serve it up with fresh slices of jalapeno peppers--unauthentic but o'so delicious!
