This Crockpot Beef Stew is the ultimate comfort food. It’s quick and easy to throw together because the slow cooker does all the work!
Growing up, beef stew was not my favorite. I’ve tried it before using other recipes and something was always just…off.
Whether the carrots were mushy, the potatoes were grainy, or the seasonings weren’t right, there was always something left to be desired.
They were very unfulfilling experiences. When food can be so good, why waste your appetite on not-so-great things?
So, I avoided stew for years. Until a few weeks ago when a friend subtly hinted, “Did you know that beef stew is one of my favorite foods? You know, you could make it sometime and that would be okay…”
Hint taken. And so, I went back to the drawing board. I picked out the ingredients and techniques I liked the best and put them all together and created our very own beef stew.
And let me tell you, I have fallen in love with it! I live in Arizona, so the temperatures are still quite high. Now every time I feel even the slightest degree drop, I get the urge to make this stew again!
This is the absolute perfect meal for a cool day! The smell of it cooking in the crockpot all day is just divine and it is comfort food to the max! It is warm, chunky, flavorful, and SO filling!
Nothing grainy, mushy, or under-seasoned – just a bowl of steaming hot broth, tender beef, and a lovely medley of onion, carrot, and potato.
