Ingredients

1 lb
beef stew meat (diced into smaller pieces)
3 stick
carrots
3 stick
celery
4-5
smallish to medium potatoes
4
beef bouillon, cubes
1 can(s)
(14.5 oz) fire roasted tomatoes
4-5 c
water
1 large
onion
2 1/2 tsp
thyme, dried
1 1/2 c
pastina (any kind, in this recipe i used rosa marina)
2 Tbsp
oil
1 Tbsp
butter
salt & pepper to taste
1 large
container (32 oz) beef broth

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Dice your celery, carrots and potatoes set aside. Dice your onions in separate bowl, set aside. Make sure your beef stew pieces are smaller in size to ensure even cooking.
2
Add your veggies to your crockpot. In a saute pan, add your oil & butter. Once heated, add your stew meat. Saute till no longer pink, than add your onions. Saute for 1-2 more minutes. Remove and add to crockpot as well.
3
Add your fire roasted tomatoes and thyme to the veggie/meat mixture and stir. Add your bouillon cubes, beef broth and water, salt and pepper. Stir to incorporate. Cover and let cook on low 7-8 hours.
After about 6 hours or so, taste and see if you need more salt & pepper or a little more beef broth. You need enough broth to cook the pastina. If seasonings are to your taste and there is enough broth to cook your pastina with a litle to spare. Add your pastina, stir and cover again till ready in about the last 15 minutes or so...
4
Ladle into bowls and serve with crusty bread or rolls. We love slices of cheese along with the bread with this as well.

Down home comfort in a bowl!!
