I am the mother of two and I work full-time. When I have the time I like to cook, but I have to balance being a vegetarian with my husband's love for meat. I am told I make a mean london broil.

    This looks wonderful! My question is that if I wanted to serve this for Shabbat lunch to people who don’t eat food that’s been heated with a sauce for Shabbat lunch and this is only in the crock pot for 7 hours then how do I serve it?
    Room temperature? I am trying to figure out the logistics to be sure my guests will eat it.
    Thank you!

    question on this recipe:
    what does it mean 1/2 water and 1/2 coconut milk…does it mean that you use 1 cup water and 1 can coconut milk correct?
    Please advise me I want to make this next week
