Crock Pot Beef Stew
And yet another crock pot beef stew recipe! :) This is one of the few "soups" my husband will let me make without too much complaint. He is just not a soup/stew guy, even though this is very "meat and potatoes"!
The original recipe has several additional steps, including sauteing the onions and browning the meat, but I took the easy route and toss everything straight into the crock pot and enjoy this one very much! I often use half sweet potatoes and half regular potatoes and sometimes add in mushrooms as well. We usually serve stew with a nice hearty Irish soda bread.
All the ingredients, laid out on the counter.
Combining the meat with the flour in the crock pot.
