Crock Pot Meats and Soups
A tip for cooking more than one meal at a time is to put several portions of meat in a crock pot and simmer on low for 4-8 hours with plenty of water to make a soup broth if desired, herbs, herb teas, and other spices. Add onion for flavor. This makes the most tender and moist meats. When the meat is done and cooled, weigh it into 3 1/2 ounce portions and freeze anything that you won’t use within 3 days. You can use the broth to make savory soups. Just add your daily portion of vegetables, like asparagus, cabbage, or spinach, to 1 cup of the broth. If you want more liquid and volume in the bowl, add herb tea or water and season.
Beef and Asparagus Soup
Put 1 cup of beef broth in a bowl, add additional water as desired. Add 3 1/2 ounces of cooked beef pieces (veal is the leanest) and chopped asparagus. Season to taste. Simmer until asparagus is tender.
Spicy Cabbage Chicken Soup
Put 1 cup of chicken broth in bowl, add additional water as desired. Add 3 1/2 ounces of cooked chicken pieces and 3 1/2 ounces of chopped cabbage. Season to taste. Simmer until cabbage is tender. Lemon or vinegar with sweetener (Stevia or Xylitol) makes a good sweet and sour broth. Add 1 tablespoon of milk if desired.
