Long Day...Shortish Cooking (Kinda)

Do you ever have one of those days you are grateful that dinner is ready when you get in the door at night?  (ie using the crockpot) I help in BAP's classroom once a week and I am grateful for the use of my trusty crockpot on those days.  I made some hearty chili the other was delicious. 

Steak Chili
adapted from:

2T oil
2lbs round steak, cut into cubes
1 (16oz) jar cocktail onions, drained (or 1 1/2 cups onions, chopped & sauted until clear)
1/2 cup water
1 can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 can V-8 juice (low sodium)
1T chili powder
1 1/2 T cumin powder
1 1/2 cups chunky salsa

Brown meat quickly in hot oil. Dump into greased crockpot. Add the rest of the ingredients.  Cook on LOW 10-12hours.  Enjoy with corn chips and cheese.
