Recipe for :

Sweet and Sour Crock Pot Stew

This is another recipe from Bill Hilbrich from Saint Cloud, Minnesota. Bill says that if you have any questions feel free to email him - click here or if you would like to know a little bit more about Bill have a look at his Bio page - click here.

Bill says: "Most Crock Pot meals, at least to me, tend to have the flavor washed out of them buy the time I get home. This one is different. I have printed it as published in the Minneapolis Tribune but you may want to back off on the pepper the first time - enjoy!".


2 tbsp. vegetable oil
2 lb. Round Steak cut into 1 inch chunks
2 cups chopped onions
2 cups carrots cut into 1/2 inch slices
2 cups sliced celery cut into 1/2 inch slices
1 (15oz) can tomato sauce
1/2 cup cider (or white) vinegar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tbsp. prepared mustard
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tbsp. chilli powder
2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper


In a large skillet, heat the oil and cook meat, just until browned (about 4 to 5 minutes). Place in the Crock Pot, along with all the rest of the stuff. Mix well, cover and cook on high until the meat is tender. About 4 to maybe 6 hours.

Serve in bowls and top with a spoon full of Sour Cream.
