Slow Cooker Beef Stew

As the weather is getting colder we want to feed something hearty and warm to our families. This stew is easy to make. You can prepare it in the morning and go. I came home today and dinner was ready. This stew is 384 calories per cup.

This what you will need:

3½ lbs stew meat
3 teaspoons salt
½ teaspoon pepper
2 cups chopped onions
4 cups beef broth
2 Tablespoons tomato paste
2 cups chopped carrots
4 cups cubed potatoes
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon thyme
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon worcestershire sauce
2 cubes beef bouillon
2 cups frozen peas

Spray slow cooker with cooking spray.
Add all ingredients expect for peas and stir.


Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
Remove bay leaf.
Add peas to stew 10 minutes before serving for firmer peas. For less firm peas, add the peas 20-30 minutes before.
For thicker stew, combine 4 Tablespoons water with 2 Tablespoons mesa flour (or regular flour) in a small bowl. Stir into stew 10 minutes before serving.img_4534
