Beef Stew #2

So I have made one beef stew before in the crock (see sidebar under beef for recipe) with wine and it was delish but I wanted to try something new.  This was also equally fantastic and easy. 

 Here are the ingredients:
  About 20 carrots
 1 beef stew seasoning packet
2 potatoes cubed not peeled
1/2 onion
1 2-3 lb beef roast...I used English cut.  cut into chunks.
1 cup beef broth*take note of below
1 large jar of stewed tomatoes. (I canned these myself from the garden and added celery and green pepper) add with juice.  You can find large cans of Italian stewed tomatoes if you do not make your own.  Just add some celery and peppers (a few stalks and maybe one small green pepper chopped) If your tomatoes do not have a lot of liquid use more beef broth.

I put all of the above in the crock the night before and put it in the fridge.  I turned it on low when I left for work and let it cook for 8 hours.  Add flour for thickening if needed.

Little man only ate the beef, and gave it a thumbs down.  Princess, Captain and I all give it two thumbs up. SUPER EASY! 


  1. I am in LOVE with you!!! I have been doing monthly meal planning for 2 months now and for November I have challenged myself to only cook with my Crockpot or freezer meals and I am going to use your blog as my cook book. I myself blog all about it and I was wondering if I could link to your blog. I will of course give you all of the credit. The best part is my husband would actually eat everything! I also am excited to try the Cream of Anything recipe. I have seen it all over Pinterest and my husband said he would actually eat casseroles if I used that and not that "nasty canned stuff". I ama dding you to my favorite blogs list and we should definitely be friends = )

  2. looks good. I wanna try that soon.
