Hearty Beef Stew

For a busy person, like myself and many of us who are juggling a ton of projects, social engagements, and work, sometimes the most satisfying thing is coming home to a prepared meal that is healthy, and mouthwatering good! The CrockPot is absolutely perfect for making flavorful hearty dishes, that take minimal effort to prepare.

Beef stew is the ultimate comfort food. On cool fall evenings, I serve myself a large bowl soup, cuddle up with a plush blanket, and watch a feel-good movie.

To get this soup prepared it only takes about 15 minutes—chop up some vegetables, quickly brown the beef stewed meat, and throw everything into a Crockpot with some broth and let the Crockpot do all the work. I get the stew started in the morning and continue with my day. Later in the evening, I have this warm, soul-soothing soup waiting for me to enjoy!

Try this delicious slow cooker beef stew! It is hearty and perfect for a cozy fall evening.
