I have made this stew 3 times now!!! I loved the traditional beef stew but wanted something a bit healthier! It's now my Christmas Eve tradition. My husband and I just love the savory flavors

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place meat in crockpot, add 1 teaspoon of the salt and add all of the hickory smoke salt, pepper, and bouillon. Add water until just covered. Cook on high 4 hours.
  2. After four hours, peel and cut carrots and yams into bite size pieces and set aside.
  3. Heat up butter in a medium fry pan on medium heat.
  4. Mince garlic and chop onion.
  5. Add garlic and rosemary and 1 teaspoon salt to the butter and saute for about 3 minutes.
  6. Add onion and saute again for about 3 minutes.
  7. Put garlic mixture and vegetables into the crockpot and cook on high another 2 hours.
  8. About a half hour before serving, mix cornstarch and water together until dissolved and then stir well into the crockpot. This will thicken it up, and it totally optional.
