Slow Cooker Beef Stew

Slow cooker beef stew is comfort in a dish. Pop this in your slow cooker in the morning and come home to a delicious supper.

A good beef stew is one of my favorite Fall and Winter suppers. I have had some bad stews in my time but this my friends is not one of them. Tender beef in a rich tomato and beef broth gravy, with carrots, potatoes, peas, and corn this recipe does take a bit more work than my usual slow cooker meals but the end result worth it.

I recommend a good homemade bread to serve alongside the stew to mop up the gravy. Chewy French or Italian bread and fluffy yeast rolls are excellent choices
