Crockpot Beef Stew

I am always on the look out for (easy) crockpot recipes. Recently (after it was pointed out to me) I realized that I have never made beef stew before! Don't ask me why....I guess we don't eat a whole lot of it. I researched a few recipes and some sounded good and some I didn't have the ingredients on hand so, basically a little here and a little there and I came up with my own. :)

Beef Stew:

Stew meat cut into 1 inch cubes
2-3 stalks of celery
1/3 cup flour (can substitute with 2 packs of beef gravy)
1 tsp paprika
1/2 onion chopped
chopped potatoes (we go heavy on the potatoes so I just kept dumping them in!)
4 cups beef broth
diced carrots
2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 pack of stew seasoning

Put your beef in crockpot and sprinkle the flour(or gravy)  on and stir to coat the meat.
Add all other ingredients, cover and cook on low 6- 8 hours

I may add some gravy and the flour next time because I like it a little thicker but it was just to my hubby's liking!


  1. Sounds wonderful!! I am going to save this to my favorites. I am looking for lots of crockpot recipes for after baby comes! I bet it was perfect for the chilly weather lately! Hope you had a sweet weekend! Lots of love xoxox

  2. Looks delicious!

    I need to send you my beef burgundy recipe for the crockpot. Also uses stew meat and so good!

  3. What skin care product I should use to make skin beautiful.
    This natural skin care ingredient works in 2 ways; by relaxing your skin to smooth out wrinkles and by re-densifying your skin to permanently reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
    Apricot: Apricot is the base ingredient of cosmetic scrubs
    due to its natural exfoliating properties.

  4. But, being laughed at while preparing for a possible zombie 2012 apocalypse, or other consequences of the end of the Mayan calendar is going to be worth it - when the unimaginable and previously comically impossible actually come to life.

  5. Using dumbbells lets you incorporate a much more natural range of motion for this while getting maximum
    pectoral kick. Heavy grinding exercises, explosive exercises and combo
    matrixes require a lot of energy for completion. Grip the dumbbells and kick out your legs in a
    push position.

    your day. Whatever you plan to do, having a choice of
    ab workout is probably the best avenues available for you to
    acquire those well-sculpted abs you always see on physical or health magazines.

  7. First, there was the Miami Face-eater; then another man ate his
    room mates' brain and heart; and now it's being reported that
    a woman in NYC wanted to eat a police officer and claims she has a "hunger for human flesh".

  8. Few reliable products being manufactured by Cuisinart are
    bake ware, private reserve wine cellars, counter-top water filtration,
    can openers, food processors, tea kettles, toasters, waffle makers,
    hand blenders and mixers, etc. Black and Decker 3 in 1 Waffle Maker, Grill
    and Griddle G48TD This is usually a versatile appliance which may bake four waffles on the other hand (great for big families
    as well as waffle lovers). The committee hears Tessa's message loud and clear, sort of.

  9. It is very easy to understand and memorize the basic
    activities and tasks of the slow cooker. 2 lbs chicken breast, cut into strips.
    The first 3 were kind of boring but this one was a real winner.
