Slow Cooker Short Rib Stew

Two weeks ago I was in Indiana with an amazing group of bloggers visiting with Tuttorosso tomatoes, a brand I’ve worked with for a while now that I truly truly love.

We ate some REALLY good food, had a great food photography workshop led by Amanda of  Heartbeet Kitchen, toured one of their tomato farms, and went to their factory. They even made lunch from all of our blogs!

It was pretty amazing to see the tomatoes go from the truck and in just 45 minutes, right into the cans ready for us consumers. The quality and care that goes into each Tuttorosso can is really, really amazing to see, and is clear by their superior product. Here’s a little snippet from the trip, if you didn’t see it on my social media channels!

    1. What size slow cooker would we need to use for the Short rib stew? Our slow Cooker would not hold the recipe amount of ingredients. We think our Slow Cooker is 5 Quarts. We also used Russet potatoes and they were very large… could that have been the issue?

      We’ll taste it in a couple of hours and let you know what we think!
