Slow Cooker Beef Stew

When I find something that I really like, no matter if it is food, a DIY trick, or a thrift shop, I like to share it with others.  That way they can enjoy it too.

I have a recipe for beef stew that has been my go to recipe for a few years now.  It is quick and easy so what's not to love?  It only takes a few ingredients and a few minutes to throw everything in the crock pot.


Adapted from

1 cup beef broth
1/4 cup Light Zesty Italian Dressing
1/4 barbecue sauce
1 tsp. dried oregano leaves
1 lb boneless beef chuck for stew
2 cans sliced new potatoes
1-2 cans sliced carrots
1 large onion, cut into chunks (optional)
2 slices bacon, chopped (optional)
3 tbsp. flour
3 tbsp. water

Mix broth, dressing, barbecue sauce and oregano in slow cooker.  Add all remaining ingredients except flour and water; toss to coat.  Cover with lid.  Cook on low for 8 to 9 hours (or on high for 4 to 5 hours).

Transfer meat and vegetables to serving bowl with slotted spoon; cover with foil.  Set aside.

Mix flour and water until well blended.  Stir into juices in slow cooker; cover.  Cook on high for 15 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened.  Spoon over meat and vegetables.
