    Hi, I searched and found a couple of recipes...

    Serves 6, 3 points per serving

    450 g lean beef fillet steak
    5 spray low-fat cooking spray
    1 small onion(s)
    300 g mushrooms
    2 clove garlic
    2 medium carrot(s)
    425 g cooked pinto beans
    1 portion stock cube
    400 g tomato(s)
    1/2 teaspoon oregano
    1/4 teaspoon thyme
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    2 tablespoon thyme Instructions


    • Place beef in a slow cooker. Coat a nonstick frying-pan with cooking spray. Add onion, mushrooms and garlic. Sauté over medium-high heat 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add to slow cooker. Add carrots.
    • Place half of beans in slow cooker. Place remaining beans in blender. Add 1/3 of stock to blender and purée. Add mixture to slow cooker. Add remaining stock, tomatoes, oregano, dried thyme, salt and pepper.
    • Cover and cook on high setting of slow cooker for 6 to 7 hours. Garnish with fresh thyme.

    This one would have to be pointed up:
    1 pounds stew beef
    Handful of Baby carrots
    3 white potatoes
    1 large onion cut into wedges
    1 can of beef broth (I use Campbell's)
    1 clove of garlic minced
    2 teaspoons of kitchen bouquet
    1 teaspoon of worcestershire sauce
    Add water to fill crock-pot

    Cut stew beef into bite size pieces, dredge in four with salt and pepper. Place into crock-pot. Add beef broth, garlic, onion, carrots and potatoes add kitchen bouquet and worcestershire sauce. Add water just to top turn crock pot on high and cook for 5-6 hours. Stir occasionally.

    hope that helps :D
