Slow Cooker Recipe- Beef Stew

Over the weekend, I treated my BF, daughter and myself to one of the best beef stews ever. The funny thing was, it was so easy to make, my 9 year old could have done it herself. All you need are a slow cooker ($20 at store) and the following ingredients.

5 red potatoes. More flavor than the russet ones and you don't have to peel them.

A few stalks of celery

I used half a bag of baby carrots that are peeled. Just cut them in half for easier eating.

an onion

1-2 lbs of stewing beef

2 cans of beef broth

let the beef stew cook on low for 10-12 hours

Look at the tender, beefy goodness

Serve over rice for a great comfort meal


4 carrots
5 potatoes
1 onion
4 stalks celery
1-2 lbs stewing beef
2 cans of beef stock of broth
Worcestershire sauce to taste
1 clove garlic
1 bay leaf
1 tsp paprika

Chop vegetables and put all ingredients into crock pot. Cover and cook on low 10-12 hours or high 4-5 hours.

In my experience, cooking it overnight produces much more tender beef and flavor. Enjoy!

I haven't made beef stew in ages. My Mom had a good recipe, too. I love crockpots; I'm actually make my Hungarian Goulash in one right now.
