Crock Pot Beef Vegetable Stew

READY IN: 9hrs 30mins
Recipe by smoke alarm jr

Description:I found a similar recipe to this one in a Canadian cookbook. I altered the vegetable and spices to suit our tastes. If one does not have the time or want to brown stew meat then a pound of cooked ground beef will do quite nicely. I usually serve with warm rolls or garlic bread.

Top Review by Merlot

My husband and I really enjoyed this stew. Becasue he loves garlic so much, he asked that I add a few cloves of garlic which I did toward the end of the cooking time. But it tasted great even before I added the garlic. I did as you suggested and thickened it with 1/2 cup of watr with 2 tbsp of flour. This is a stew I will make over and over. Thank you so much, Smoke Alarm Jr.
