Feeds 4-6 people depending on appetite!
4 lbs stew meat
2 onions - cut into rings
4 cloves garlic - minced
1/2 green pepper - sliced
2 cartons mushrooms
2 spaghetti squashes
4-5T chili powder
1t cayenne pepper
2t Chinese 5 spice
Combine all ingredients EXCEPT spices in a 6 qt crock pot, cook on low about 8 hours. After 7 1/2 hrs, remove 2 cups of delicious beef broth and store for another time. (I put mine in freezer bags). Add all spices and cook another 20-30 minutes.
To give you an idea of size, this is after I removed 2 cups of broth from the 6 qt crock pot
When almost ready to serve, cook your spaghetti squash and scrape out center with fork onto plates for your "pasta". I cook my squash in the microwave by cutting it in half and putting a half face down on a dinner plate and microwaving on high for 6 minutes. You would need to do this for all 4 halves. Many people cook theirs in the oven, for me the microwave is just faster and easier. :)
Serve meat with juices on top of "pasta". Great with a salad!
