Moroccan Beef and Sweet Potato Stew. Crock-Pot and Freezer Meal

It should be no secret that I love my Crock-Pot (her name is Kate). And I’m happy to report that “Kate” has done it again.

I’m always searching for slow cooker recipes that are a bit different, but still simple. I use my slow cooker because I don’t have time to slave away in the kitchen. This recipe has everything. Simple, delicious and nutritious. It is simple enough to whip up on a busy morning before work AND would make a terrific freezer meal.
