    Hey Saoirse, how's it going?

    Ooh, cheap cuts are the best. For some slow cookers are even more fabulous with blade and chuck steak than they are with rump steak and other ostensibly higher quality cuts.

    My wife has a fabulously easy recipe, just put a splash of marinade (tamari / soy / worcester sauce etc etc) over the meat in the crockpot, and leave it on low for 8 hours. I add a bottom layer of onions and carrots strictly for taste. Then the meat can be shredded before serving (what I *believe* is called barbequeue in godless america, but what I will always call shredded meat).

    In terms of reheating, it's pretty easy to add the cold meat into potato topped pies or other pseudo-casserole meals, although because the meat is pre-cooked, you only have to cook the veges in it. Anyhoo, I'm sure you know all the cooking basics, being a mum and all. Are you wanting to know individual recipes to branch out into?

    And yeah, the meat stock makes a pretty good bouillon for breakfasts too.

    This is a good way to do corned beef as well, which I wholeheartedly recommend with onions (slow cooked) and tomatoes (served raw).

    Unfortunately I only have a really small crockpot which will cook maybe a pound or two of meat. Just looking for more seasoning ideas mainly.

    Ok then. I have a 'go to' set of herbs for cow meat, since I basically ALWAYS use onions, garlic, basil, oregano, fish sauce, and then depending on my mood some of tumeric, paprika, ginger, cumin, chili, and the generic 'curry power'.

    Hmm...fish sauce? Does that make your house smell like fish?

    I don't know, maybe. Is that a bad thing?

    I know my wife would prefer that I cooked with it less, so maybe put that in the optional category...

    I don't use more than a tablespoon when cooking and it adds a really nice flavor when mixed with coconut aminos. Acts kind of like a vinegar, but more interesting taste. Doesn't smell up the house.

    Yeah, I tend to cook with coconut/ginger/fish sauce all together.

    Boo!

    There is no good reason to believe that humans evolved in hierarchical tribes between tens of thousands to two million years ago. To the contrary, there is a mountain of evidence showing that humans evolved in largely egalitarian bands that punished attempts of dominance with social sanctioning, banishment, and death (Boehm 1999)
