I missed out on works or me Wednesday so I thought I better get on the stick & make a post for the slow cooker Thursday at least.
This is a great beef stew that can be done in a very slow conventional oven, at 275 degrees or a slow cooker. I must admit that I have always made it in the oven, because it is one of those comfort type foods that is usually made in cooler weather so getting the kitchen heated up was not an issue so, I can't be sure just how it will turn out in the slow cooker but I see no reason why it wouldn't be the same.
1 1/2 lbs beef stew meat
4 potatoes cubed
4 large carrots cut in 2 inch pieces
3/4 Cups water
3/4 Cups tomato juice or V/8 ( I prefer the V/8 juice)
1 package of Lipton onion soup mix
3 Tablespoons tapioca
1 Tablespoon dried sweet basil
Chopped celery leaves
Mix it all together in a bowl & put into the cooker on med. for 5-6 hours. I like to serve it with some crusty rolls & a fruit salad... If you want to see alot more recipes go over to, diary of a SAHM & find almost anything you might think of......Enjoy
