This Beef Stew may be made in the Crock-Pot or on the stove top in a large Dutch oven, but for the best
results, be sure your Crock-Pot doesn't boil; it should simmer lightly. Boiling will make the beef stringy
and dry, will ruin the flavor of the broth and make the vegetables mushy - the results will be like stew
from a can. Some Crock-Pots have probes which will allow you to set the desired temperature.
Sprinkle the beef cubes lightly with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and
flour for extra flavor during browning.
When using a Crock-Pot for beef stew, for extra flavor, brown the floured beef
cubes in olive oil before transferring them to the Crock-Pot (brown the salt pork
along with the beef, if using). Brown onions and add garlic towards the end of the
browning but don't allow it to take on too much color. In a Crock-pot, add all the
vegetables at the beginning; set the Crock-Pot to 170 - 190°F and leave to cook from
5 - 8 hours or until meat and vegetables are tender.
Extra vegetables can be added if you have them on hand. Turnips, corn, sweet
potatoes, fresh peas and green beans are all wonderful additions. A pinch of thyme
and basil and bay leaf can be added, too.
This stew tastes even better the following day after the flavors have a chance to
blend in the refrigerator!
