Cooking with 5ingredients or less

Updated on October 14, 2011


Cooking with a well stocked pantry is really a short cut to preparing meals efficiently, what I want to show you what to do is how to take advantage of the everyday ingredients most chefs have on hand at all times.

These items such as water, milk,butter, vegetable oil, olive oil, salt and black pepper, all purpose flour and granulated sugar.

Making recipes like these are perfect for those busy days when you don't have time to cook or get to the grocery store

Vegetable Soup with Beef

Vegetable Soup With Beef

5 ingredients or less

Veggie Soup with Beef

2 cans (15 ounces each) mixed vegetables

1 pound beef stew meat

1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce

2 cloves garlic, minced


Place all ingredients in Crock-Pot slow cooker. Add enough water to fill Crock-Pot slow cooker to within 1/2 inch of top. Cover; cook on LOW 8 to 10 hours

This makes 4 servings that are super simple to prepare, it may seem that you have a whole lot of water but over the 8 -10 hours of cooking the liquid will reduce , for a more rich flavor you can add 1/2 stick of butter then a little salt and pepper to taste.

So come on and try this super set it and forget it meal.
