Slow-Cooker Steak and Guiness Pie

Brrrr, it's cold out there!  Now that winter has offically arrived, it's time to break out your slow-cooker (if you haven't already) and make something warming, comforting, and downright delicious.  Our friends at The Naptime Chef, Big Girl, Small Kitchen, and Small Kitchen College are running a Slow-Cooker Challenge right now to celebrate this chilly season.

Check out the tasty recipes that people are posting, and read some of the very clever slow-cooker ideas that others are adding to the comments section on each site. (I totally want to try The Daily Meal's cheesy cauliflower casserole.) We're happy to include this hearty Slow-Cooker Steak and Guinness Pie to the mix. It'll warm you up from head to toe!

The challenge runs from today, Monday, January 16th through this Friday, the 20th.  Go to The Naptime Chef or Big Girl, Small Kitchen and post your favorite slow-cooker recipes for a chance to win a slow cooker from Delonghi or Breville. Or, join us on Twitter for a chat about slow-cooking on Wednesday, the 18th from 12 to 1 pm. The hashtag is #slowcooker. Hope to see you there!
