Have made this.................. I didn't take prisoners!!! I used 2 different type/ cuts of meat.. A chateau Bureau and 2 porterhouse steaks cubed.. Sauce was the mushroom soup (this is a powdered in a packett).. Garlic,, (in the jar,, 1 small),,,,,, Shallots,, (5 large) diced.. "FRENCH" butter,,, (that's the one that Americans want buy),,, water content)............. Basmati long grain brown,,,,,,, steamed to aldenti... "SEAR" the beef and then make the sauce.. BUTTER (3 tbls) ,,, Garlic,,, small jar,,, the mushroom soup is from the dehydrated packages.... USE 2,,,,, appropriate water,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Here I used a Merlot,,,,,, Sauteed everything in the sauce added the beef over the rice and the person that was receiving this meal,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, was spellbound for 45 seconds.....

So, there is no mincing or dicing the garlic? I always have such a hard time trying to get it into even little pieces, but smashing it is something I can do with no problem. I like that you use the whole wheat flour. It is a new ingredient I am trying to work with, so this makes it much easier.

I like the fact that we just sweat the onions, dump all the wet ingredients and then all the spices in a saute pan, then dump chicken in Crock Pot and cover with all the saucy goodness! It really is a simplified version of classic butter chicken. Spooning it over some nice jasmine rice and a dash of something green completes the meal. Green- do we use cilantro or scallions? Parsley? Not sure, but they are all good!

Hi princess6860504, this recipe is garnished with fresh cilantro. Enjoy! - Natalie, Editor of AllFreeSlowCookerRecipes
