Slow Cooker Beef Stew


Slow Cooker Beef Stew
This stew was a big hit today, my eaters asked for second servings. The secret of the success was the cooking method: the slow cooker. The meat was so tender that it would melt in your mouth and the combination of meat, vegetables and spice flavors was out of this world. Not to mention that I got it started in the morning and forgot about it, going out shopping. When we returned, the kitchen was smelling like my personal chef was there waiting with lunch. Great for busy weekends!
