Slow Cooker Beef Stew

So, I’ll admit…. I don’t cook.
It’s not that I don’t like to cook, it’s just that…. well, lets just say depression took away my love for cooking a number of years ago.
I, however have a freezer full of meat. Meat I’ve gotten on clearance, that I buy & throw in the freezer when I get home, because I keep hoping my love for cooking will come back. I really have been hoping to want to start cooking again.
I pulled some meat out of the freezer, and it happened to be stew meat.
Hmmmm…. Well, what is there to do with stew meat besides making stew?
So, I decided to make stew. In the crock pot. Now personally, I don’t like stew, but Mr. SnuggleBunny does. I have no clue why I bought the meat in the first place. But, why the hell not.
I found a simple recipe on AllRecipes.com, one of my favorite recipe sites. It was a simple recipe. I cooked it as is without tweaking anything.
2 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 1 inch cubes
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups beef broth
3 potatoes, diced
4 carrots, sliced
1 stalk celery, chopped
- Place meat in slow cooker. In a small bowl mix together the flour, salt, and pepper; pour over meat, and stir to coat meat with flour mixture. Stir in the garlic, bay leaf, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, onion, beef broth, potatoes, carrots, and celery.
- Cover, and cook on Low setting for 10 to 12 hours, or on High setting for 4 to 6 hours.
I cooked it, and although I’m not a stew fan, it was really tasty! 😉
The family liked it, that’s for sure. So, I thought I’d share it with ya’ll.
