CROCKPOT BEEF STEW

 

Crock Pot Beef Stew

This crock pot beef stew is the perfect comfort food on a cold day.  Just add some cornbread muffins for a meal.

1 to 1 1/2 pounds of lean beef, chuck or stew meat, cut in bite-sized pieces
1/2 cup flour
3 tablespoons cooking oil or bacon drippings
3 or 4 carrots, cut in pieces
4 or 5 medium potatoes, peeled and cut in chunks
3 stalks of celery, cut in inch sized pieces
1 medium onion, peeled and cut in pieces
1 cup frozen peas, Optional
4 cups beef broth or 2 (14.5 ounce cans)
1 (14.5 ounce) can beef gravy
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
Pinch of cayenne
Few drops of hot sauce, Optional
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
2 bay leaves
 
Dredge the stew meat in the flour and brown in oil on top of the stove. (Keep any leftover flour to thicken stew, if needed)  Add meat to crock pot along with carrots,  potatoes, celery, onion,  and peas. Mix together beef broth, beef gravy,  salt, pepper, cayenne, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder and mushroom soup with a wire whisk.  Pour over meat and vegetables in the crock pot, add bay leaves and cook on high 4 hours or low 8 hours or until vegetables are done. (If you want a thicker gravy remove some of the liquid about 25 minutes before serving, add a couple tablespoons of the leftover flour from dredging the meat and return to crock pot to thicken the gravy). Remove bay leaves.   Makes 8 to 10 servings.
Enjoy!

  1. May I have permission to share your recipes with my family and friends?

    I am 62 years old and many of my friends do not use computers…

    • Yes, Betty. I love that you want to share with family and friends. They are just not to be copied and posted on the internet. As long as it is for your own use at home there is no problem and thank you for asking. If you look under the recipes there is a little printer icon. If you click on that you can remove the photo and any text you don’t want and print just the recipe.

  2. Wow. Just today I made some crock pot stew and cornbread is being fixed to go with it!

  3. Judy did you get a chance to see where I did a highlight of your recipe on my blog a couple of days ago. I was also able to make a great dinner out of the left overs. Maked the best shepherds pie ever.

We enjoy your comments but due to the large volume we must delete comments often. We try to do this weekly and sometimes more often. Positive comments about a recipe you tried and loved are always welcome. Thank you so much for commenting here.
