Hot & Hearty Stew

As far as I can tell, this would have to be eaten in moderation since I use regular stewing beef.  If you used a leaner cut (sirloin?) this would be a very healthy meal.

Toss in the frying pan to sear:

  • 1lb stewing meat cut into bite size pieces

Toss into Crockpot/ Slow Cooker:

  • 3-4 potatoes, cut into chunks,
  • 4 carrots, cut into chunks,
  • 1 onion, cut into chunks
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 2 tablespoons beef bouillon
  • 2 bay leaves
  • (dash worcestershire if you happen to be in the states)
  • 3 Tablespoons onion soup mix, 1 tablespoon soy sauce (only a few are GF!)
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  1. Sear meat for 3-4 minutes over med-high heat, stirring continuously.
  2. Put into slow cooker with other ingredients.
  3. Turn on medium for 4 hours or low for 6 hours.
  4. Mix together 2 Tablespoons corn starch, and 4 tablespoons COLD water.  Pour into stew while stirring to thicken.  Remove from heat.
  5. Enjoy with a GF English Muffin (from the freezer), fresh bread or for a treat – Baking Powder Biscuits.
