How to Make Perfect Beef Stew


  • 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.
