Slow Cooker Hungarian Goulash

On the Menu Today~
Slow Cooker Hungarian Goulash

On my recent trip to my favorite grocery store,
the meat department was having a special on Hungarian sausage.
Since I had never tried Hungarian sausage before,
I quickly picked up a package.
Trig's Smokehouse is well known for their delicious sausage and
bratwurst so I knew it was going to be good....and it was~
Smoky, Spicy and Delicious.

I couldn't think of a better way to showcase this spicy sausage,
than in a 'goulash' or 'stew'.
This 'goulash' also has another favorite ingredient of ours, dried lentils.
Lentils are great to use in any stew-style, slow cooker recipe.
Lentils don't need to be pre-cooked before adding to the slow cooker, only rinsed,
cook up beautifully and lentils add extra fiber and vitamins, at a very low cost.

Pineapple Coconut Mango Tequila Rabbit

Pineapple Coconut Mango Tequila Rabbit

Yes. you read that right, Rabbit.
My hubby loves rabbit.
Even though we live in the woods of WI,
he isn't a hunter or fisherman but
he does have friends who are.
Which is great for us.
We always have a supply of venison,
rabbit, trout, and perch.

One of the best ways to prepare rabbit. we think,
is to first of all, marinade the rabbit, preferable overnight.
Rabbit gets very tender and very tasty when you marinade it.
Any kind of marinade seems to work well.
We like to use a bottled marinade and
our favorite brand to use is: Robert Rothschild

Our favorite way to cook rabbit is in the slow cooker.
Cooking rabbit, after it's been marinaded overnight,
in the slow cooker on low for 6 to 8 hours,
is an excellent way to cook rabbit.
The flavor is super delicious and
the rabbit becomes 'fall off the bone' delicious.
