This recipe is for a soup style stew. For a traditional stew check out my Polenta and Stew recipe.
Just follow these easy steps for a warm and hearty soup. Start it in the morning or at noon and have it ready at the end of the day.
Cut stew meat into small bites and cover in unbleached flour and pepper mixture.
In a skillet brown 2 cloves of garlic in 3 tbsp. olive oil. Add floured meat pieces to skillet and brown well. The meat doesn’t need to be cooked all the way through; it will have more time to cook once in the crockpot. Browning the meat is the key to my beef stew for the crockpot and gives it great flavor. Once browned, place in crockpot.
Add 2 cans of beef broth and one can of undrained diced tomatoes ( low salt preferred).
Cook on high till carrots are cooked OR cook on low for 4 or more hours as required.
Optional: 1/2 hr. before serving add cooked wheat noodles or brown rice.
