Crock Pot Beef Stew

IMG_0702

Beef stew is one of the easiest meals to make in your crock pot.  It is also a great way to cook chuck roast to use in soups (beef barley, vegetable beef soup etc).

Yesterday we had a silver tournament hockey game in the morning followed by the last football game of the season for cheerleading.  I grabbed a chuck roast out of the freezer and put it in the crock pot with some onion, potatoes, more onion (the tween loves the cooked onions and gravy), 3 bouillon cubes, 2 heaping tablespoons cornstarch, salt/pepper, 1 1/2 cups of water.  Normally I would add carrots but I did not have any in the house and didn’t have time to go out and pull some up.

As you can see it came out wonderful and was perfect coming home after a LONG football game and having dinner.  I served this with a side of homemade applesauce and there was plenty left over for tonight’s dinner 🙂

Crock Pot Beef Stew

1 chuck roast (any size)

4 large potatoes peeled and quartered

1 large sweet onion

3 beef bouillon cubes

2 heaping tablespoons cornstarch

sprinkle salt/pepper

1 1/2 cups of water (doesn’t have to be precise you can use more for more gravy then adjust to 4 bouillon cubes and 3 Tablespoons cornstarch)

drizzle of garlic flavored oil

(you can add any other vegetables you like.  Carrots and parsnips are a favorite of ours but I have used corn and peas also)

Place all in the crockpot and cook on low for 6 – 8 hours.  YUM!
