Slow Cooker Beef Stew

It's starting to get warmer here.  Every so often we'll still get a chilly night and it was on just such a night that my husband requested some good ol' fashioned beef stew.  Of course, how could I say no to such a simple request.  Especially when all you do with this recipe is cut up a few things, throw it in a crock pot and wait 6 hours.  Easy.  Delicious!

Add the beef, flour, salt and pepper into your crock pot and stir together so the beef is coated.

Now add the garlic, bay leaf, paprika, Worcestershire sauce...

Potatoes, I used Yukon Gold.  They're my favorite.

Celery, carrots, onion, beef broth.

Now cover, set the crock pot to high for 4 to 6 hours of cooking, or low for 10 to 12 hours.

After 6 hours, looks yummy.  Smells insane!

I served with some nice hot biscuits.  Enjoy.

I found this recipe here: Slow Cooker Beef Stew

2 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 1 inch cubes
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 bay leaf

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups beef broth
3 potatoes, diced
4 carrots, sliced
1 stalk celery, chopped

1.Place meat in slow cooker. In a small bowl mix together the flour, salt, and pepper; pour over meat, and stir to coat meat with flour mixture. Stir in the garlic, bay leaf, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, onion, beef broth, potatoes, carrots, and celery.

2.Cover, and cook on Low setting for 10 to 12 hours, or on High setting for 4 to 6 hours.
