I hadn't planned on doing a post today but I thought it might be nice to share this recipe I tweaked. Unlike some of the blogs I read, I am not a master in the kitchen! I love to cook though and try new recipes but everyday it seems I learn something new about food, baking, etc. so I am by no means an "expert".
I have been making beef stew for years now but it just never seems quite right or something's always missing. I finally think I have a good one to follow! I never really make it the same way twice (kinda like meatloaf) but I think I will be following this recipe for years to come. I know this isn't the best picture but trust me, it's good!
Beef Stew Meat
2-3 TBSP flour (seasoned optional)
2 TBSP cooking oil
4-5 chopped carrots
4-5 medium chopped potatoes
1 pckg dry onion soup mix
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 -2 cups beef broth or water
I coat the meat in flour and usually add a blend of garlic powder, seasoning salt and whatever else I have on hand. I'm not really sure if makes much of a difference though. I brown the meat in the oil on high heat just until slightly brown.
Combine soups and broth with a whisk in your slow cooker. Add meat, carrots, and potatoes to cooker and cover. Cook on low 6-7 hours and enjoy!
