Hearty Beef Vegetable Stew

“This is a great slow-cooker recipe for beef stew. I've tried many slow-cooker recipes and they always turned out a little "odd", until I tried this one. This tastes wonderful, is healthy for you and the beef is very tender. Perfect recipe for fall and winter. I might try adding some frozen peas in this next time. Comes from Light&Tasty.”

Directions

  1. Combine tomatoes, tapioca, basil, sugar, salt and pepper in a bowl and let stand for 15 minutes.
  2. Place potatoes, carrots, onions, and celery in bottom of 5 quart slow-cooker.
  3. Brown meat cubes in oil over medium heat until just browned; remove with slotted spoon to slow-cooker. Discard drippings.
  4. Pour tomato mixture over meat; cover slow-cooker and cook on high for 5-6 hours or until meat and veggies are tender.
  5. Note: When I made this, after 4 hours I reduced heat to low and stirred it all together. Then I let it cook on low for 1-2 hours more and it came out perfect for me.
