I work nights so crock pot recipes are a lifesaver to me. Here is another one. Cut the beef and the veggies about the same size for uniform cooking

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray crock pot with Pam.
  2. Mix all ingredients except for the beef in crock pot.
  3. Add the beef to the crock pot.
  4. Cover and cook on low 8-9 hours or until everything is tender.

This recipe appeared in a Betty Crocker magazine I bought today. I was in a hurry, so I made it on the stovetop. I sauteed the mushrooms in olive oil, and then removed them so that I could add them at the last minute to prevent them being overcooked. I then sauteed the onion, browned the beef, added 2 tablespoons of flour, and added a whole carton of beef broth and the rest of the ingredients. I simmered everything for 1.45 hours. The stew came out nice, but next time I will skip the mushrooms (you really can't taste them in that small of a quantity), and will add 16 ounces of carrots instead of the 8 ounces called for. Thanks for posting!

This was a wonderful stew, and I loved the addition of the shiitakes. I used 1 1/2 pounds meat and browned it before adding to the crock-pot. Also reduced the cooking time, but I think my crock-pot must run hotter, as I find I need to do so with most crock-pot recipes I try. This was warming and hearty on a cold day. Thanks for posting the recipe!
