Crock Pot Beef Stew

Crock Pot Beef Stew is a savory dish and is especially satisfying after a hard day at work--especially if it involved fishing all day long. Early in the mornings, before heading out to the lake, I would start cooking this simple stew in my crock pot on my front porch knowing that I would have a hearty meal when I returned to camp.


2 lbs. beef stew meat
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
4 Tbs butter
1 can beef broth (10.5 oz.)
1 can cream of mushroom soup (10.5 oz.)
1 package of fresh sliced mushrooms
1 cup onions, chopped
1/2 cup bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
3 medium Russet potatoes, diced
3 carrots, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced 
salt and pepper to taste

    Dredge and coat stew meat in the flour then add to the skillet and brown in melted butter. Mix the remaining ingredients in the crock pot, add the stew meat and cook on low for several hours (until meat is tender). Serve over rice or mashed potatoes. Produces 4 – 6 servings.

    Bon Appetite! Enjoy.

    1. This one is so good ! No one in South Louisiana would think of eating a stew without rice or at least creamed potatoes. Most recipes don't even have this touch which is so real ! I am from South Louisiana and Cajun. I like the touch of mushrooms a lot ! Way to go !
