Perfect Beef Stew

Jane Whittaker


I tried quite a few different ways to make beef stew and this is made in the crock pot so it is so tender.

1Cut beef into 1/2 inch pieces.
2In a zip lock bag, put in the flour, and salt and pepper.
Add the beef to bag, shaking to coat, you will probably have to do this a few times to get all the beef coated
3Heat vegtable oil on a large fry pan and saute the beef until browned, you might need to do this in two batches too
4Put a disposable liner in your slow cooker, and add the meat.
5To the fry pan that you browned your meat in, add the beer and simmer for a few minutes to get all the little crunchie things. That's where the love is. Pour this over meat.
6Cut carrots an potatoes into chunks, put in pot.
Put onions in pot.
7Sprinkle the beef stew seasoning packet over.
8Pour gravy over, and give a stir.
9Cover and cook on low for 8 hours
10Half hour before you are ready to eat, add peas, cover and continue to cook. At serving time give a stir.
