Slow Cooker Beef And Onion Stew

Tomatoes and rich beef broth give this hearty beef stew a flavorful base. Toss in pearl onions, sweet potatoes, celery, and carrots, and wait for the colors and aroma to fly.

Slow Cooker Beef And Onion Stew

Like most slow cooker recipes, this one can be prepared in the morning and ready when you arrive home. The ultimate in both comfort and convenience!

If you want this recipe to cook up a bit quicker, follow the instructions to brown the beef, but instead of placing the ingredients in the slow cooker, place them in a large soup pot on the stovetop. Bring the stew to a boil, then reduce it to a simmer and cook until the hearty vegetables are soft.

Stews are excellent to freeze and save for later. Also, buying stew meat in bulk can be inexpensive and is great to have on hand, so you can quickly prepare a stew.
