Crock Pot Beef Stew

This recipe came with our crock pot instructions 15 years ago and it's been well used. We love coming home from skiing to a pot of stew. Another serving addition to this recipe that comes from my husband's grandparents, is to serve up the stew in a bowl and top with a scoop of cottage cheese and then sprinkle with seasoned salt. It sounds funny but is so.....tasty, I recommend you try it that way if you like cottage cheese. If you want the stew a bit thicker you can leave the lid off the last 1/2 hour or so and turn the heat up to high.

I followed your recipe but "Cleaned the frige"with the veggies. So instead of peas I used sugar snap peas. Added potatoes, parsnip, carrot & turnip. Love the Worchestershire sauce in it. Perfect for a dreary Winter evening meal. Cooked on high for 1 1/2 hrs then low for 4 hrs. Veggies were just right still had a bit of crunch

Oh this stew was excellent. And soooo easy. I used one of my moms old tricks and for extra seasoning added a packet of Au-jus gravy mix to the broth. It gives it just a little different flavors. My roommates and I devoured this with some fresh french bread for an entire weekend.

YUMMY ! I made this stew this afternoon while taking my daughter to a hockey game. We arrived at home to a wonderful aroma ! I skipped the peas and the cottage cheese (UGH!), and added onion and turnip. We cooked it on high for 4½ hours. My husband said it tasted just like his mom's stew ! During the last half hour, I made recipe #77417 for biscuits, which were also awesome !!!
