GF Delicious Beef Slow Cooker Meal

This is the first post I have written in a while, unfortunately I have not been hit with the lucky stick of late and have had the wonder of experiencing some time in hospital recently and am still recovering from the ailments. Unfortunately this prevented me from going to the Gluten Free Expo,which I was looking forward to for weeks, months, really since last year! So if you were fortunate enough to attend the expo this year, please comment and let me know how it was, was it better or the same as last years? What were the stalls like? Did you get the opportunity to buy lots of gf food? What were the speakers like? Did you learn anything about coeliac disease or gluten intolerance that you didn't know? I would honestly appreciate any feedback on the expo!

I thought although it is spring in Australia, the nights still get cold, I would share  a slow cooker recipe that I made up, it's delightful and tastier when made with cheaper cuts of meat (even better for the budget)! I hope you and your family enjoy this delighful meal as much as mine did, make sure you take that extra time and cook the food before putting in the slow cooker, it seals the flavours, perfecting this  delicious dish!

GF Delicious Beef Slow Cooker Meal

4 pieces middle bacon
4-5 pieces whole peeled garlic
1 red onion sliced

Method: Place chopped meat in a freezer bag, add cornflour and paprika, shake well. brown meat, add diced bacon, garlic, sliced onion into the pan. Add tomatoes, stock, herbs to your liking. Place all the cooked ingredients in a slow cooker on low. Dice potatoes, place in slow cooker a few hours before the meal is ready, slice the mushrooms and add to the slow cooker at the same time as the potatoes. Serve on a bed of rice.

Enjoy this hearty meal, it will have you wanting more.
