This is one of my recipe's that I use what I have. I have changed it up with different veggies, but same base.

I love the little pearl onions, they are a bit tedious to prepare, but worth it to me. I make this in my 8 quart crock pot. It could be done in the oven..but I like how tender the crock pot makes the meat..

I doubled the batch, but the recipe I'm posting is a single batch and would work in a 4 quart crock pot.

This is such a hearty and comforting stew, and did I say delicious?

Enjoy!

How to Make Beef Stew By Cass

Step-by-Step

  1. With a sharp knife; cut the fat from the beef. Cut into 2- 2 1/2 inch chunks it whatever size you prefer.

    In a large bowl, I place the beef, add the 2 tablespoons of worchester sauce, and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Add the garlic powder, stir and refrigerate over night. You can skip this step. I just like to marinate it.
  2. In 2 - 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil, brown the meat with the garlic. Set aside
  3. Spray crock pot with cooking spray.

    Peel and chunk your potatoes and add to the bottom of the pot. Next comes the carrots,onion, green beans.
  4. Ps..A tip for preparing the pearl onion. Place them in a pan of boiling water for 3 - 4 minutes, drain..cut off the root end and squeeze gently with your fingers, they will pop right out of their outer skin.
  5. Next, add the browned meat, garlic and juices.
  6. In a small bowl; combine soy sauce, pepper, paprika, rosemary, thyme and flour; pour over the meat. If you want salt, keep in mind there is a lot of sodium in the soy sauce. I didn't add any...it is plenty salty without.
  7. Lastly, in a small bowl mix the beef broth and tomato sauce and pour over the top; add the bay leaves.
  8. I just about forgot my mushrooms...I put them in last.

    Cover and cook on high for 4 - 5 hours. Or low 7 - 8 hours, or until meat and vegetables are tender.
  9. Enjoy with a piece of crusty bread, or perhaps a salad.
