Posted by Kathryn on February 14, 2011 in Meal Planning, Recipes |

This recipe was provided to me by my brother-in-law. He was making it one day when I stopped by and offered me a bowl of it. It’s delicious! Excellent choice for a cold winter day!

12 ounces boneless beef chuck, cut into 3/4 inch pieces
1 -16 oz package frozen cut green beans
1 – 5 oz package dry au gratin potato mix
1/2 tsp dried thyme (crushed)
3 cups water
1+1/2 cups half and half (or light cream)
Finely shredded Parmesan cheese

Combine meat, frozen green beans, dry potatoes and sauce mix, and thyme in a slow cooker. Pour water over all.
Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
Stir in half-and-half (turn to low setting if you were using the high setting).
Cover and cook for 15 more minutes.
Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
