    1. Hi Jamie! You would want to brown your meat before hand. You could then put it all in the crockpot except for the spinach and cream. I would cook on low for 4-6 hours, then add the spinach and cream in the last 30-60 minutes. Let me know how it turns out if you try it that way. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I cannot tell you how GOOD this is. My 7 year old quickly claimed it’s his new favorite food, behind pizza (but who could compete, right?)!! Such depth of flavor and inexpensive to make, too. I sub coconut milk to make it dairy-free
