Lean steak is a perfect slow-cooker candidate, says Begun, especially when it comes to chilis and stews. And if you’re not sure what to make, this recipe practically cooks itself: Just brown ¾ lb of lean steak in a pan, and peel and cut 1 butternut squash into 1-inch pieces. Add it all to the slow cooker, along with 8 ounces of mushrooms, 4 ounces of whole baby carrots, 1 sliced onion, 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon each of dry thyme and oregano, and a dash of red wine. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
