Beef Crock Pot Meal

(This is very tasty. The bacon adds a lot of flavor to this meal.)

3 medium potatoes, coarsely chopped
1 cup coarsely chopped fresh cauliflower
1/2 cup milk
1 beef bouillon cube
1/4 cup warm water
1 pound beef stew meat, cut into small pieces
4 strips bacon, chopped
1 cup chopped carrots
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced (optional)
1 tomato, chopped
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Bring a pot of water to a boil; add the potatoes and cauliflower and cook at a boil until soft, about 20 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Pour the milk over the mixture and mash with a potato masher until smooth.
In a bowl, crumble the beef bouillon cube into the water; whisk until the bouillon is dissolved. Pour into the crock pot. Add the stew meat, bacon, carrots, onion, garlic, and tomato to the slow cooker. Spread the mashed cauliflower and potato mixture over the meat and vegetable mixture. Sprinkle the Cheddar cheese over the top.
Set the crock pot to low and cook for 8 hours, or, if you prefer, at high for 4 hours.

If you prefer to cook in the oven, layer the items into a 9x9-inch baking dish or 2 quart casserole dish, and bake, covered, for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Uncover the dish, and bake another 10 minutes to get the top nice and crispy.
