the one on Amazon only had 2 left at the time we bought it. Keep looking there, im sure it will come back to be sold again. There is always ebay if you want to bid for the book --- there is one there now i found for 29.99 though the bidding war ends friday. If you are an avid ebayer -- add that to your watch list.
the recipe we tried was a slow cooker called beef stew Bourguigonon style (made with slow cooker). In the book all recipes are made for 4 servings (plated dinners) with knowing you are getting your 2 cups of veggies in. If you have never had Celery Root --- BOY is it good. Its sweet like potato but taste like celery. lol Here is the recipe for you:
Beef Stew Bourguignon Style
1 1/3 lb beef shoulder cubed 1 in thick
3 c mushrooms
3 c green peppers shredded
2 c celery root cubed
1 T oregano crushed
2 T Walden Farms Basil & Tomato Sauce
7 oz Walden Farms Hickory Smoked BBQ Sauce
2tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 1/2 T olive oil
1 1/2 T onion powder
sea salt to taste
pepper to taste
In skillet , brown meat in hot oil. Drain excess fat. Transfer meat to slow cooker.
Sauté peppers, mushrooms and celery root. Add onion powder. Add to slow cooker. Pour the basil and tomato sauce into skillet. Once boiling add to slow cooker. Add BBQ sauce, oregano, and worcestershire sauce directly to slow cooker and cover. Cook on low for 10 -12 hours.
Remove 1/3 of the vegetables from the slow cooker and puree. Put the puree into a large skillet and add the sauce from the slow cooker. The sauce should coat the back of the spoon to be the right consistency.
Add the rest of the vegetables and meat to the skillet, stir well and serve.
