I have beef stew going in the crock pot for supper tonight. It smells so yummy. It's one of our favorite meals. As I was cutting up the veggies Abby was steadily munching away. That's alright with me. Veggies are good for her.
I don't have a set recipe I use for beef stew. I never make it the same way twice.
Beef stew meat
Squash (will add last 30 minutes)
Early peas (will add last 30 minutes)
Stew Seasoning (will add half way done)
I layer my beef stew, meat in the bottom, stir in about 2 T of flour to coat the meat good, Then add veggies as above stated, starting with potatoes. Finally, I use a cup of water because my crock pot is large (good hearty eaters live here)... Then it's just hurry up and wait while it cooks (usually on low for 6-8 hours)
