Fantastic Slow Cooker Beef Stew
Adapted from a recipe from this one via Allrecipes.com. This reheats very well and is great for lunch! I love what the paprika provides.
Ingredients (serves 6-7)
2 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 1 inch cubes
1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt (to taste)
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper (to taste)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 bay leaves
1 tsp paprika
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 large onion, cut into thin slices
2 cups beef broth
10 red potatoes (around 2.5 lbs), cleaned and diced with skin on
8-9 carrots, sliced into 1" pieces (bite sized)
1. Place meat in slow cooker. In a small bowl mix together the flour, salt, and pepper; pour over meat and mix thoroughly.
2. On top of the meat, add garlic, bay leaf, paprika, (additional salt or pepper if desired) Worcestershire sauce, onion, beef broth, potatoes, and carrots.
3. Cook on Low setting for 10 to 12 hours, or on High setting for 4 to 6 hours. (The low setting is ideal here).
