2 pounds turkey breast, cut in chunks 1/2 cup beef broth 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 1 onion, thinly sliced 8 ounces sliced mushrooms 1 tablespoon dried parsley (unless you have fresh, then use about 1/4 cup at the very end) 1/2 cup half and half or heavy cream 1 cup frozen green beans (I like the long thin ones, not the thick weird ones they give you in the school cafeteria) Put the turkey into the bottom of your slow cooker, and pour on the beef broth and balsamic vinegar. Add onion, mushrooms, and dried parsley. Stir a bit to combine. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours, or on high for about 4.
