1 - 2 lbs beef, cubed
3-4 large baking potatoes
1 cup beef broth (or bullion cubes & hot water)
1 can peas or 1 cup frozen peas
1 tablespoon oregano or Italian seasoning
First, cube the potatoes into bite size chunks, and place those at the bottom of the slow cooker. Slice the carrots and place them on top - these two are the items that take the longest to cook, so you want them on the bottom. Pour the beef broth (or cubes and hot water mixture) over the carrots.
Follow with the cubes of beef, and sprinkle evenly with the seasoning.
Cook on high 6 hours, or low 8 to 10 hours. In the last hour, add the peas and mix everything together. Don't add the peas any earlier, or they will turn to complete mush!
Serve in bread bowls for a fun touch. My total cost to make this was under $4 - plus the bread bowls.
