Homemade Crock Pot Beef Stew
My husband had been wanting me to make beef stew for a while and specifically said, “don’t be making any of those internet recipe beef stews.” Yes, I’ve tried several recipes off the internet and Pinterest. Many are good but there’s always the ones that say – Best Recipe Ever – well, best it definitely is not! Has anyone else had this happen? I’m sure I’m not the only one. So, my husband said I just had to get his Mom’s beef stew recipe and that I did! Now I’m sharing it with all of you. It is delicious! She suggested cooking the meat in a pressure cooker but I don’t have one so I made this in the crock pot.
2 pkgs Stew Meat
2 Envelopes of Lipton Dry Beefy Onion Soup Mix
1 Cup Flour
1 T Vegetable Oil
1 32 oz. pkg of Beef Broth
I never measure my vegetables so put as many in as you like.
1 – Heat vegetable oil in a pan on stove top.
2 – Put your flour in a large gallon size ziploc bag with your stew meat. Shake it to cover all of the meat.
3 – Place your covered stew meat in the pan and brown on all sides.
4 – While the stew meat is cooking, chop up all of your vegetables.
5 – Place stew meat, vegetables, beef broth and dry soup mix in to your slow cooker or crock pot.
6 – Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
