Sausage & Green Bean Slow Cooker

Modified from this recipe, which is in turn taken from the Fix-It and Forget It Cookbook (a book of crockpot recipes). This is fast to assemble and smells amazing when your man or woman comes home after a hard day of work.

I don’t have a crockpot – a couple years ago I gave it to someone who wanted one. The dutch oven I had (given to me used) finally wore out. So for this I use my one large-ish stockpot with tinfoil on the lid. It works great. Since this current stockpot’s lid is warped and it wasn’t a great piece to begin with, later this year I will be putting something on layaway (warning: kitchen porn, in kiwi or cherry please!) but for now I’m making do.

2 lbs. green beans, washed with ends trimmed
2 – 3 carrots, peeled and chopped
16 ounce can tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
3/4 teaspoon sea salt, celery salt, or garlic salt
1 lb turkey kielbasa

Before you do the veggie work, cook the sausage until browned. Remove and let cool a bit and cut up carrots and green beans. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker. Cover and cook on high about 4 hours. Serve over noodles or with hot french bread.
