Description

Beef Stew is one of my favorite Winter meals next to Pot Roast and if you live in the Midwest where it's -16 below out this stew will warm you right up. Beef and potatoes are a Midwest favorite and this stew will not disappoint.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 pounds of beef stew meat, cut into chunks 
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 cups of potatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 Onion cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup of baby Carrots
  • 2 cups Beef Stock or broth
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic
  • 1 tsp celery salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning or seasoning of choice
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 tbsps Worcestershire sauce

Instructions

  1. Season beef with black pepper, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, and celery salt. Sprinkle flour over the meat and toss again. Mix in Worcestershire sauce.
    Heat 3 Tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the meat in batches, don’t overcrowd the pan. Brown on each side for 45 seconds. Add more oil if needed. Transfer to slow cooker.
    Reduce heat to medium and add 1 tablespoon olive oil.. Add onions and cook for 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Use a silicone spatula to clean the bottom of the pan, removing any brown remnants. This will give the soup lots of good flavor. If necessary, add a splash of beef broth to help loosen it. Transfer the onions/garlic mixture to the slow cooker.
    Add all remaining ingredients to the slow cooker.
    Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or high for 3 to 4 hours, until the vegetables are softened and the potatoes are fork tender.
