Slow Cooking Thursday

It's Thursday and it's time for Slow Cooking Thursday, hosted by Sandra of Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.

Jamaican Beef Pepper Pot

2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubes
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 lb steing beef cubes
6 slices bacon, chopped
2 onions, choped
4 garlic cloves, minced
6 cups beef stock
1/4 cup tomato paste
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
1 each sweet red and green pepper, chopped
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp wine vinegar
1 tsp hot pepper sauce

Place sweet potatoes in slow-cooker.

In large saucepan or Dutch oven, heat oil over high heat; brown beef, in batches. Add to slow-cooker.

Add bacon to saucepan; fry over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain off fat. Add onions and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5 minutes. Add stock, 1 1/2 cups water, tomato paste, thyme, salt and pepper; bring to boil. Pour into slow-cooker. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or until beef and potatoes are tender.

Add red and green peppers. Whisk flour with 1/2 cup water; whisk into slow-cooker. Cover and cook on high for 15 minutes. Stir in vinegar and hot pepper sauce.

This sounds so good. At our church every year during our Missionary conference we all bring in a dish from another country. I'm going to try this one. Thank you so much for sharing.

Oh this sounds great, I'm bookmarking it :)

I have never heard of Slow Cooking Thursdays before! I am going to have to check it out because the slow-cooker is about the only thing I can reliably cook with and not chance burning the house down with!

This looks so good! I think my family would love this one. Thanks!

I've never made a Jamaican meal myself, so I look forward to trying this!
