I really don't use my crockpot as much as I should. Whenever I do, I always marvel at how quick and easy it is to make a meal without thinking about it. I've even gone on bursts where I stockpile slow cooker recipes so I can do it more often...and I never do. Today, I knew having a real meal was going to be out of reach unless I made it cook itself. It's so hard to snuggle a baby and cook a decent meal at the same time! So, I grabbed my 5 Ingredient Slow Cooker cookbook (Company's Coming) and started to toss in the 5 ingredients to make an amazing stew for our dinner. I thought I would share the recipe with y'all. It is so yummy and hearty!
Warning: Contains Peanut Butter so not good for those with allergies.
