There is nothing like coming home to a warm bowl of beef stew on a chilly night. Packed with vegetables, tender beef, and a flavorful broth, this crockpot beef stew pretty much makes itself while you are off doing other things. A few minutes of prep time in the morning is all you need, and seven or eight hours later, your dinner is ready and waiting.
This is a recipe I fall back on time after time, and it has never disappointed me. The meat comes out tangy, moist, and delicious, and it is so easy to make. Your crockpot does most of the work while you are off doing other things! Served with a salad or a side of coleslaw, it’s a great summer meal that you can keep in your back pocket, and pull out when you have a day off and want to spend the afternoon away from the kitchen.
