Easy, Delicious, Nutritious.

Easy – I can’t imagine anything simpler than putting everything in a crockpot then turning it on.

Delicious – Seriously good, tastes just like moms. 🙂

Nutritious – One serving (6oz meat + sauce) contains 322 calories, 37g protein, 3g fat, and 6g fiber.

I found this reciepe on food.com and of course modified it to our tastes. Not much more to say about this meal, the above says it all. Here’s the recipe:
