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 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?

Slow Cooker Beef Stew

Yield: 6 (1-1/3 cup) servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs lean trimmed raw top round beef roast, cut into 1” cubes
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 (7-8 oz ea) potatoes, cubed (mine came out to be 22 oz total)
  • 4 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 ½ cups fat free beef broth

Directions:

  1. Place the beef cubes in a large Ziploc bag. In a small dish, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Pour the flour mixture over the beef and seal the bag. Shake bag until beef is well coated. Pour the beef into your slow cooker. Pour all the remaining ingredients over the beef and stir to combine. Cook on low for 9-10 hours.

    If you don’t mind a little stronger flavor, it’s nice to add rutabaga in place of some of the potato. 1/2 the calories and 1/2 the carbs…and pretty yummy. Thanks for the great recipes! :-)

      Ooh, I’ve never even had a rutabaga before – I’ll have to try it!

    You are on a roll! Will make this weekend for sure! It is cold here in Arkansas too and this sounds awesome!

    You totally read my mind (almost)! With St. Patrick’s day around the corner, I’m feeling like making some of my Irish favorites…well I haven’t found any skinny recipes for Guinness Beef Stew. Of course it will change the nutritional info, but I think all I need to add is a bottle of guinness and a couple TBS of tomato paste. Those seem to be the only consistent elements of Guinness Beef Stew that this one doesn’t already have. Thanks a million (again and again)!

      Great minds think alike! Let me know how the Guinness version turns out!

    My husband was just requesting stew the weekly menu. This looks like a winner!

      Perfect! I hope you both love it :)

    Should the beef weight 2 lbs before or after it’s trimmed?

    I’m making this today! I’m a little worried because the broth didn’t cover all the meat and veggies. I’m not an experienced crock pot cook, so I’m trusting the process:-) Thanks!!!

    • Emily Koenigsberg replied: — January 31st, 2014 @ 12:55 am

      I hope you loved it! The liquid didn’t cover the other ingredients in mine either – it will be perfect!

    Made this tonight for dinner. Delicious. My husband loved it too! I can’t believe how easy this was for how delicious it turned out. I added some oregano and garlic powder as we love garlic flavor! Thanks for this recipe.

    Is there anyway to cut down the cook time? Like maybe 3 hours on high and 3-4 on low?

    • Emily Koenigsberg replied: — February 2nd, 2014 @ 8:56 pm

      I’ve never tried it that way, so I can’t really guarantee any results. If you try it, let me know!

    I don’t know if the reply fuction is working propperly…anyway, I posted about making this with Guinness. I made it over the weekend with 1 can of Guinness and 2 TBS of tomato paste. It was SOOO flavorfull. I can’t say if the flavor was much different from your original recipe but I will be making it again before St. Patrick’s Day. Everyone love it, including me, and I actually don’t usually care much for beef stew (weird I know).

    I see there is 8 points per serving. What is the measurement of a serving?

    • Emily replied: — March 25th, 2014 @ 9:18 am

      The number/measurement of servings is listed right under the recipe title inthe recipe section of the post
