I have been making this stew for 25 years. I have tried many recipes, but this is my very favorite. Toss the ingredients together in the morning and coming home to the aroma of comfort food.

It goes so well with fresh French bread and a green salad.

How to Make Slow Cooker Beef Stew

Step-by-Step

  1. Brown beef cubes in skillet over medium heat. Transfer meat into crockpot.
  2. Add remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 8 hours or on low for 4-5 hours.
  3. If you'd like a thicker stew, add a tablespoon or two of cornstarch mixed in a small amount (about 1/4 cup) of water and add to stew about 15 minutes prior to serving. This should thicken it.
