With a few vanilla beans left I decided to go out on a limb and try something totally different, a savory dish using vanilla beans. After doing a little research I decided to try is vanilla-beef combination.
I seasoned my beef with chili powder and cinnamon
I trimmed the fat, chopped an onion, cubed the beef and cut 2 vanilla beans in half.
Everything went into my crock pot and cooked on low for 8 hours.
The end product? Surprisingly delicious! I shredded it to be used in dishes that would normally call for shredded beef.
Check back tomorrow for one of those recipes
