Slow Cooker Beef Stew
630 mins (prep 30, cooking 600)
18 ingredients
6-8 servings
This is quite possibly the best beef stew I have ever had. Flavorful, thick broth with perfectly done vegetables and melt in your mouth meat. This is from Cook's Illustrated Make Ahead Cookbook. I adapted the recipe slightly, and added a turnip. I used a large oval slow cooker, and it was filled to the brim at the start of cooking, so if using a round cooker I would decrease the veggies slightly.
