How To Make beef stew with a different twist!

  • 1
    Heat Crockpot while boiling the cut Potatoes & Carrots in a pan until they're cooked half way through Set aside
  • 2
    Cut up beef cubes & Sausage (I find it alot easier to cut sausage while frozen Gently fry in med/lg. saucepan in butter (or sm. amt. of oil) until browned & tender
  • 3
    I used a crockpot for a nice slow simmer although you can use a pot of your choice. Put everything into heated pot/pan including the pearl onions/peas & drippings from fry pan & cook low & slow.
  • 4
    Add Worcheshire/gravy/broth & boulion/spices to pot & cover. I sometimes use 1/2 cup sour cream to mine when stew is 1/2 way cooked which gives a nice added flavor.
  • 5
    Near the end, scoop out 1-1/2 to 2 cups of the stew mixture and mash it to a thick consistency (I use a small blender) and add back to pot & stir in to incorporate the texture. Cook 3 - 4 hrs. in Crockpot Remember to cook low & slow
