Slow Cooker Beef Stew

Slow Cooker Beef Stew

It was a cold, blustery day and I knew I wanted to make a warm, hearty, comforting dish. I also knew I had a lot planned for the day and not too much time to spend in the kitchen. This Slow Cooker Beef Stew was the ideal meal to meet all my needs. There’s no pre-cooking, you basically just chop everything, toss it in the slow cooker and let it do all the work for you. I love meals like that! The beef and vegetables cook to tender perfection and one serving is super filling. You can even cook this overnight! How easy is that?
