This Slow Cooker Farmers Market Beef Stew was a last-minute idea. I love standard beef stew but I thought it would be fun to change it up this week. On my mail route I’m lucky to have 4 produce stands along the way. The produce stand I stop by almost daily is Lone Pine Farms. I can get snack for work and get my produce shopping done at the same time.
For this Slow Cooker Farmers Market Beef Stew I used my trusty beef stew recipe but added more vegetables that are in season now. I added fresh corn off the cobb, red onion, and fresh-cut green beans. It turned out amazing. The corn still had a great crunch, and the green beans were cooked perfectly. I also had extra time in the morning add the ingredients for homemade bread in my bread maker (I use the delay cycle). I don’t think anything could be better than walking in the door after working all day to beef stew and homemade bread.
