Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV
April 26, 2005

This was REALLY good...the meat was kind of dry but that might be user error ... :) I'll still give it a 5. (of course my house still smells like stew...) I used about 1.25# of meat or so, Lipton beefy onion soup mix, 2 small packs of baby carrots, 2 red potatoes, and 1 onion. I didn't saute the onions in butter either. I prepped this the night before, and next morning, popped it in the crock pot. It cooked on low for 12 hrs (might account for the dryness). The meat shredded easily. My fiance thought it was tasty, so I think this recipe is a keeper. I might add some beef broth next time for more liquid to combat the dryness. The pepper really gives it a little kick! I didn't have to thicken the gravy because I had dumped in the flour from the meat. All in all, a successful first crock pot experience... :) *note - I've made this several times now, and adding the can of beef broth really helps! From now on, I'll make sure all of my crock pot dishes have enough liquid to cover the meat! I also have been using sweet potatoes in lieu of regular potatoes...yum!
