Yummy Beef Stew

On chilly/cold rainy days there is nothing like beef stew.  I love being able to start it early in the morning in the slow cooker and enjoy the smell as it cooks.  My house smells so yummy right now 😮

Beef stew, I find, is something very easy to make and there is really no recipe but more to your own taste.  But here’s how I make mine

One package beef stew meat (precut into large chunks)

4 beef bouillon cubes or beef broth (one can)



potatoes (I use either redskin or yukon gold)


1/2 cup flour

sage, italian medley (mrs. dash), celery salt

french bread

-in a crock pot place bouillon or broth with crock pot on high

-cut up about a cup of carrots, and potatoes. then place in pot

-cut about a 1/3 cup of celery and place into crock pot

-place flour into a bowl, place seasonings (about 2 tablespoons medley, 1 teaspoon sage & celery salt) but you can use whichever seasonings you prefer.

-cut meat into smaller cubes/chunks and roll into flour.(pour remaining flour into crock pot- will help thicken broth)  place meat into pan to lightly brown on med/low heat. then place into crock pot

-fill with water until all ingredients are covered. place lit onto crock pot and let cook

*I generally start this no later than 10:00am and it is ready to eat around 6:00pm. I also lower the heat to low after 4 hours on high.

Serve with French bread
