This recipe for slow cooker beef stew turned out fantastic! I was pretty excited when I got home from work, to find that my beef stew had thickened perfectly and turned out great.
The last time I made beef stew, was when I first got married 11 years ago, oh man what a disaster, it was so runny, and had no flavor. The bad recipe I tried was from a famous slow cooker cookbook, but just a bad, bad recipe. This recipe will not disappoint you, it is full of flavor, and it’s nice and thick. This stew recipe reminds me a perfect pot roast dinner, with everything chopped to the perfect size, with gravy on it!
I start by adding some seasonings to a 1/2 cup of flour, toss my stew meat with it, then brown the meat. I de-glaze the pan with a can of beef broth, and stir in a small can of tomato paste. Then I add the veggies, meat, and broth to the slow cooker, cook on low for 7 to 8 hours. And then add some frozen peas, and cook a little longer
