Slow Cooker Spanish Beef Stew

Rated as 4.37 out of 5 Stars

"I have never heard a complaint of my beef stew, it's a great new take on an old favorite! I prefer to serve stew over white rice, it all depends on your taste. You can season the beef with a packet of Sazon instead of salt and pepper, for even more Spanish style."

  2. Return skillet to heat and heat the retained drippings. Saute onion and garlic in hot drippings until softened, about 5 minutes; add to beef in slow cooker.
  3. Stir potatoes, diced tomatoes, sofrito, and olives into the beef mixture.
  4. Cook on Low until beef and potatoes are fork-tender, 4 to 5 hours.
