Beef stew is a classic comfort food and once it starts to cook, it has the house smelling delicious.
1 1/2 – 2LBS of cubed beef
Small bag of carrots (Or if your fancy, regular carrots)
Enough to balance with the meat and potatoes
Small bag of baby potatoes
Season beef cubes to your liking. Get a large pan, I like to add a little water, and place seasoned beef into pan. Cook until brown on all sides. Place cooked meat into strainer.
Pour desired amount of beef stock into crock pot. I like to fill it about half way. Place cook meat into crock pot.
Clean off carrots, and if you have the regular carrots, peel and cut them to your liking. Rinse off and add to crock pot.
Cut potatoes to your liking. Rinse and add to crock pot. You can add more beef stock if you like to cover everything or keep as is.
Turn crock pot on low or high. Low (6-8 hours cook time) High (4-6 hours cook time. You want your meat to be soft and tender, with carrots and potatoes cooked all the way.
Best served with rice. Will be extremely hot. Remember to blow. 😉
