Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs beef stew meat
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 3 large Red potatoes 2 cups chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped carrots
  • 1 small yellow onion
  • 2 ribs of celery chopped
  • 1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 2- 14 ounce cans beef broth
  • 1- 14.5 ounce can petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 Tbs Rosemary Garlic Spice Mix Tones is what I used
  • 1/2 Tbs Thyme
  • 1/2 Tbs Parsley
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/3 cup flour optional

Instructions

  • Brown meat in a fry pan using olive oil, then put in 6.5 quart crock pot.
  • Chop potatoes, carrots, onion, and celery, and add to pot
  • Pour in Worcestershire, beef broth, and petite diced tomatoes and herbs and spices
  • Cook on medium heat for 6-8 hours
  • Remove 1/2 cup of the liquid, and whisk it with flour (gluten free if desired), and stir into the stew, slowly. (Optional, this helps thicken it, but does not enhance flavor)
  • Let simmer 30 more minutes
  • Enjoy with crusty bread, top with fresh parsley and basil if desired.
