This is the first beef stew recipe I have made and what a great one it is. I made this tonight for some friends and everyone devoured it voraciously. I love this spices and how it adds more than just a meaty flavor. Also this was super easy to make.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set a 12-inch saute pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil to the pan and season the beef with 1 teaspoon of the salt, 1 teaspoon creole seasoning and 1/2 teaspoon of the black pepper.
  2. Sear the beef (in 2 batches) in the saute pan for about 2 or 3 minutes per side.
  3. Add the spread, mushrooms, flour, veal stock, tomato paste, herbs, spices, and browned meat to a slow cooker.
  4. Cover the slow cooker and set the temperature to high. Cook for 1 hour.
  5. Add the potatoes and carrots and continue to cook the stew for another 7 hours.
  6. During the last hour of cooking, add the pearl onions and replace the lid.
  7. Once the stew is cooked, stir in the peas and parsley and serve immediately.
