My lunch today. Mmmmm….

I’ve had a craving for beef stew for a while. It’s all this near-winter weather we’re having. 🙂

Here’s the recipe I use. It’s so very good! I’d say it serves about 6 people. Not bad for 1 lb of beef!

Crock Pot Beef Stew


  • 1 lb stew beef, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/4 c flour
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced or minced
  • 1 6 oz can of tomato paste
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 4 medium potatoes cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 4 large carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into i-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen peas
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 2 tsp dried thyme leaves
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  1. Toss the beef with the flour in a zipped bag until the beef is well coated.Pour the oil into a skillet heated over medium heat and brown on all sides. Scoop beef into crock pot. 
  2. Add onions to skillet and brown until tender. Add the tomato paste to the skillet and coat the onions. Scoop the onion mixture into the crock pot. 
  3. Add the wine to the skillet and scrape off the brown bits from the pan, then pour the wine into the crock pot. If you don’t have wine, you can use an extra cup of beef broth. 
  4. Add the remaining ingredients to the crock pot. Cook on high for four hours or on low for 7-8 hours.
