1 pound beef or lamb, cut into 1" cubes
1 pound pork, cut into 1" cubes
2 yellow onions, sliced
2 pounds potatoes, sliced 1/4" thick
3 carrots, sliced 1/4" thick
1/4 cup chopped parsley
10 sage leaves
1 cup Riesling wine
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
salt and pepper, to taste
In a large crockpot, layer half of the potatoes along the bottom. Top with half the onions, half the carrots, and half the herbs. Add in the meat, and top with the herbs, onion and carrots, and then potatoes. Pour the wine and broth overtop. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Enjoy with a nice loaf of French bread and fresh salad.
I also made some homemade bread and a simple French salad to go along with the heavy casserole. Here is my recipe for a delicious baguette of French bread. Harper really loved the salad. It was the first time I had ever seen her eat lettuce the way she did. She has been so adventurous!
Simple French Salad
1 head iceberg lettuce
1 head green leaf lettuce
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
3/4 cup olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
Wash and dry the lettuce. Tear it up and place it in a large bowl. Whisk the vinegar, oil, and salt together. Toss with the salad to serve.
We all liked the baeckeoffe, but agreed that I did not allow it to cook long enough. Since I made it in the slow cooker, it needed a few more hours of simmering. We left it running until dinner time, and the meat was so much more tender. The taste was delicious, and the accompanying salad and bread tied off the meal.
