Crock Pot Beef Stew

Winter just wouldn't be complete without a hardy bowl of beef stew every once in a while. This is a wonderfully flavorful stew that I can never seem to make enough of. I love the fact that I can make this in my crock pot. Returning home after a day of skiing is so much more pleasant when a warm and satisfying dinner is waiting for you. I hope you all enjoy this as much as my family does.

Crock Pot Beef Stew

  • 2 lbs beef cut into bite size pieces
  • flour seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1 can whole tomatoes
  • 12 peppercorns
  • 3 whole cloves
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 6 medium potatoes, cubed
  • 6 carrots, sliced
  • 2 stacks celery, chopped
  • 1 jar onions
  • any additional root veggies you like - we add turnip when we have it

Brown beef in a little bit of oil and the garlic. Sprinkle with seasoned flour to coat. Put beef in the bottom of the crock pot. make sure to scrape all the wonderfully flavorful drippings in as well. Add all of the remaining ingredients to the crock pot. When you add the tomatoes cut them into quarters with the side of your spoon. Cook on low 8-10 hours or until your potatoes are soft.

We like to serve this with whole wheat biscuits or 90 minute dinner rolls.
