Slow Cooker Beef Stew

slow cooker beef stew

This is the last week of our Slow Cooker features.  I’ve come to reaffirm my love of a slow cooker over this last month.  The whole idea of plopping some ingredients in the pot in the morning and having all the work taken out around the supper hour is brilliant.  Sure, it does take a little time in the morning, but the benefits at supper time are worth it.  

This week I made a Slow Cooker Beef Stew recipe.  Many recipes I’ve previously made required browning of the meat ahead of time.  This one did not.  Score.  I’m all about less pans and less mess. 

cook it and forget about it beef stew

Beef Stew is naturally a hardy dish and fits into the fall/winter feeling perfectly.  While we enjoyed our meal my husband mentioned how he feasted upon Dinty Moore Beef Stew during college.  The very idea of canned beef stew is less than appetizing and with a slow cooker recipe likes this the canned options become obsolete.
