2 Meaty Slow Cooker Dishes Your Dad Will Love
If you really want to show dad you care this Father's Day, make a home cooked meal. Sure, a new tie or a "world's best dad" mug is cute, but nothing will make his eyes light up quite like a dinner you poured your heart into.
If you need a little direction, look no further - here are 2 meat dishes your dad will love.
1. Go for the Best - Beef Rendang
If you really think your dad is the best, then he deserves the best food. Talk to any traveling foodie and they'll tell you nothing beats this little Indonesian specialty. Beef rendang was made for your slow cooker. It's a slow simmered beef stewed in all the rich flavors of the Southeast. Coconut milk, lemongrass, turmeric, garlic, ginger, chillies - those ingredients give the dish a unique flavor your dad will never forget.
You'll need around 5 hours to make rendang correctly, and there are a few different steps that occur over the time span. Make sure you're using a Crock-Pot® Countdown Touchscreen Digital Slow Cooker so you don't miss a thing.
2. The Classic - Beef Stroganoff
If you're aiming for a surefire crowd pleaser, go for beef stroganoff. The recipe is simple and the product is absolutely delicious after an eight-hour slow simmer.
The beef is cooked in a stew with Worcestershire sauce, mushroom soup, chopped onion and a little water on low for five hours or more. Then, add sour cream and sauteed mushrooms a half hour before meal time. Serve on top of egg noodles and voila!
3. The Gift that Keeps on Giving
Unfortunately, there's an end to every meal. That stroganoff will be devoured just like the rendang, putting a lifespan on your gift, but it cooking for dad doesn't have to be so cut and dry.
