Sunday Suppers with Lunchbox Love–Crockpot Beef Stew

Beef stew is a classic winter dish and cooking it in the crockpot makes it even better. This recipe, from Family Fresh Meals, contains the classics–stew meat, potatoes, celery, carrots, and seasonings. I often add whatever winter vegetables I have on hand, including sweet potatoes, parsnips, or squash. It's a winning dish everytime I make it.

The Best Crockpot Beef Stew

(image & recipe from Family Fresh Meals)


2 pounds beef stew meat, (cut into bite-sized pieces)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 celery ribs, sliced
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
6oz can tomato paste
32oz beef broth
2 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
2 cups baby carrots
4-5 small red potatoes,cut into bite-sized pieces (about 3 cups)
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon oregano
1 cups frozen peas
1 cup frozen corn
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup water


Combine beef, celery, carrots, red onion, potatoes, salt, pepper, garlic, parsley, oregano, Worcestershire sauce, beef broth, and tomato paste in the crock pot. I used a 6 qt crockpot for this stew. Cook on LOW for 10 hours or on HIGH for 6-7 hours.

About 30 minutes before serving, mix the flour and the water together in a small dish and pour into the crockpot. Mix until well combines. This will add a nice thickness to the stew. Next add in your frozen peas and corn. Continue cooking covered for 30 minutes.
