Easy Slow Cooker Beef Stew Recipe

Fall means cooking is easier.  Seriously, fall means slow cooker season!  Yummy!  I don't know what it is about this time of the year but for me a great meal from the slow cooker after a long day of work is perfect on a chilly evening.  



A few months ago, we visited a working farm in northern Colorado with Jude's school and harvested our own veggies.  We literally came home with enough fresh produce to last us a month!  This meant I had to get creative with some meals so I went straight for some slow cooker meals.  


Jeremy is a meat and potato kind of man - I however, am not a fan of meat all that much but there are times that I have to give in and make some hubby favorites.  As I was looking at the produce we had I instantly knew I could make a delicious slow cooker beef stew and surprise Jeremy with a meal he loves - and little work on my part!  Hello!!

  1. My daughter visited a working farm on a field trip on Monday! She loved it.
    She brought back carrots. Yum.
    I love most meat stews made in slow cookers, especially if they contain carrots and potatoes. I'm old-fashioned that way. I love meat, potatoes and vegetables.

  5. I make a similar beef stew but I add Lipton soup mix for some extra flavor. Either way, beef stew tastes great this time of year! I also like to make slow cooker chili.

  7. I normally make a mean beaf stew or I have a veggie chilli that I make in the winter months.
    I find it's such a time saver and it just warms up the whole house. Don't forget the buns to go with it!!
