Recipe Friday – Beef Stew


With fall here and all the good hearty root vegetables coming into season, what better way to enjoy them then with a good wholesome beef stew. I love beef stew and usually this time of year I put my crockpot to good use and start fixing all kinds of stews, soups, even desserts. I think a lot of people believe fixing a good stew is hard. It’s not and honestly even if you use a regular pot to do this it still is not difficult. It’s just time consuming. That’s why I love my crock pot…it’s literally just dump and done 🙂    Hope you enjoy this!!

  2. Stir in the garlic, bay leaf, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, onion, beef broth, potatoes, carrots, and celery.
  3. Cover, and cook on Low setting for 10 to 12 hours, or on High setting for 4 to 6 hours.
