Comfort Food // Crock Pot Beef Stew Recipe

I remember a time when the only thing I knew how to make was Ramen noodles! Well, that time is long & gone, I’ve learned to master quite a few tricks in the Kitchen.  Lately it’s been harder and harder to make those complicated recipes I used to make, I have a huge folder with recipes upon recipes.  Being a first time mom has led me to become more resourceful in the kitchen and bringing out the crock pot. I can prepare it ahead of time while the baby naps during the day and it will be ready by the time the husband gets home.

So let’s get to it.
Crock pot Beef Stew Recipe

2 tbsp. olive oil
3/4 cup Flour
1 teaspoon Paprika
1 teaspoon Garlic powder
2 lbs. of stew meat of choice
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 cups beef broth or bouillon
1 tsp. salt or to taste
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. paprika
2 bay leaves
Handful of baby carrots, cut in pieces or 2 carrots
6 medium potatoes, cut in pieces
1/3 cup cold water blended with 3 tablespoons flour

    Combine flour, paprika and garlic powder in a food storage bag; add stew beef and toss to coat. 

    Brown coated beef in hot oil in a large skillet; transfer to the Crock pot. 

    Add the remaining ingredients except for water and flour mixture. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-6 hours, until vegetables are tender.

    About 30 minutes before serving, add flour mixture to the pot. Turn to high and cook until thickened.
    Serves 6 to 8 people.  I served it with rice and a green salad the first time around, since the recipe yields quite a lot for my family of 2.5 I also made some pasta for it.

    I wasn’t planning on actually documenting this meal, it was a bit impromptu, no fancy photos here and the finished product, well? I ate it. No pictures to show. But I can assure you it was delicious. 

    I’m always on the lookout for crock pot recipes so If you have something yummy you make for your family, post some links in the comment section. I will love to give them a try.

    Thank you for stopping in!
