This is a delicious beef stew made in a slow cooker. Use cheap cuts of meat to make this an economical meal.

This is a wonderful beef goulash that is well matured in the slow cooker. The paprika, thyme and garlic give a wonderful depth of flavour.
Chickpeas add low-fat protein to this dish. Dried apricots and raisins give it a sweetness that complements the warmth of the spices.
