Tom found this beef stew recipe that I made for supper tonight. It was really good. The prep work was a little more than I like, but well worth it.
5 Red Potatoes ( 1" Cubes)
1 Minced small Yellow Onion
3 Sliced Carrots
1 Minced Garlic Clove
1 1/2 Lbs. Cubes Stew Beef
2 Stalks Celery, Chopped
2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Black Pepper
2 C Beef Broth
1/4 C Flour
1 Bay Leaf
1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 Large Frying Pan
Food Processor or Anything that will Mince
Dry measuring cups & spoons
Liquid measuring cup
Crock Pot or Slow Cooker
Preparing for my Beef Stew Recipe.
1. Slice 3 carrots.
2. Mince garlic and onions.
3. Chop 2 stalks of celery.
4. Mix 1/4 c flour and 2 tsp salt in a bowl.
5. Mix the can of cream of mushroom soup and 2 cups of beef broth in a bowl and set aside.
6. Cube potatoes and beef into 1" cubes. Set aside in separate bowls.
Cooking the Crock Pot Beef Stew Recipe
Mix the beef chunks in the flour and brown them in a frying pan.
Place the carrots and potatoes in the bottom of the crockpot and around the edges of the crock pot.
Put the browned chunks of beef in the middle and place the onions, garlic and celery on top.
Now pour the cream of mushroom soup and the beef broth over everything until its 2/3's full of liquid.
Cover the crock pot and turn it on high for 1 hour, after one hour turn it on low for 8 hours. DO NOT STIR it until the end. When there is one hour left add the bay leaf and 1 or 2 tsp salt and 1 teaspoon pepper.
When the crock pot beef stew recipe is finished remove the bay leaf, stir and serve.
