Crock Pot at the Cabin Beef Stew

READY IN: 8hrs 20mins
Recipe by WildLime

My husband and I have glorious dreams of someday owning our own cabin. This is the recipe I'll make to invoke the flavors and aroma of a warm, inviting and cozy place to come back to after a cold wintery day outside. For now, we'll just keep dreaming. But if you find yourself at the perfect cabin getaway, we recommend a bowl of this while sitting in front of a roaring fire, eating some chewy French bread and enjoying each other's company over a great glass of red.

Used this recipe for the first beef stew of the fall/winter. It was a big hit. Followed the recipe all the way except I added a couple of bay leaves and cut the barley in half. To cut back on the sodium I used low sodium soy sauce and low sodium low fat beef broth. I also used a little corn starch in the last hour of cooking with the barley as we like a little thicker sauce. This is a keeper and will be making it again soon.
