Today as I was checking out Sarah, one of our faithful customers. She told me what[caption id="attachment_147" align="alignright" width="300"] Sherman Provision Mild Italian Sausage, peppers, onions, pizza sauce[/caption]
she was going to do with the Mild Italian Sausage she was purchasing. When she described how she took onions and green peppers, cut them up, added the sausage, and topped with a spaghetti sauce and cooked in her crock pot on low I knew I had to try this.
I took 2 green peppers and cut them in chunks. I also took one onion and cut it in chunks. I then added about 2 1/2 pounds of the Mild Italian sausage, and topped with 2 cans of Pizza sauce available at Sherman Provision. I have it in the crock pot right now, and it smells delicious. You can’t get a home-cooked dinner much easier than that. Tomorrow night, I will boil a pound of Angel Hair pasta (also available at Sherman Provision), and dinner is served.
Another tried and true recipe I got from a customer is Roast Beef Roosevelt style. One day Roosevelt was in my store buying a beef roast. I asked him how he was going to cook it. He told me he was going to cut up an onion and put it in his crockpot. He would then put the roast beef sprinkled with seasoning salt on top of the onion. He would start the crockpot on high for a couple of hours, and then turn it to low and let it cook until the beef roast was fork tender. I took home everything I needed and cooked the beef roast in my crock pot just like Roosevelt said. It was delicious. You don’t add any water. Let the onions and the beef roast make the juice. It is delicious.
I thank my faithful customers that helped me write this edition of “From our Butcher Block to your table.” Remember the Farmers Market on Thursday, get some great deals on produce, and try one of these recipes.
