Slow Cooker Beef Stew Recipe Is the Perfect Fall Meal

posted by Jill Baughman



slow cooker beef stewOk ok, so it's not technically fall quite yet, but it is mid-September. The kids are back in school. There's football on TV. New television shows are premiering. It's time to put away the flip-flops. The leaves are changing. And the temperatures are cooling. So time to celebrate the coming of a new season with an easy, time-saving, delicious, savory beef stew made in a slow cooker. Sounds pretty awesome right about now, huh? And you can indulge a little since you don't have to worry about rocking that bikini until next summer (thank goodness).

Not only is fall a gorgeous time of year, it's the best to come home to the warm, inviting scents of classic comfort food. Of course, the best part of any beef stew is how versatile it is. Throw in any kind of vegetables you want, but after a day's worth of slow cooking, they're sure to taste amazing and perfectly complement the tender, juicy beef. Enjoy!

Ok, I should try this... Haven't made beef stew in years, and it couldn't get much easier than this recipe.

I just a recipe similar to this but it had red wine in it. It gave it a great flavor. 

I also dont cook the potatoes in the crock pot. I roast them in the oven so I can keep all of the extra liquid and make gravy from it. Soooo good!
