Favorite recipe!

This is my favorite recipe for my Crock Pot. It is not only my 'go to' recipe for beef stew, I also use it for venison and increase the cook time to 10 hours. I sometimes add as many vegetables as my Crock Pot will hold! Sometimes I add rutabaga, but I always come back to this recipe.

Due to gradual and even heating of a slow cooker, recipes featured on this site can be cooked in a range of slow cooker sizes. Most recipes can be accommodated in a slow cooker that is either one quart smaller or one quart larger than specified. If using a smaller sized slow cooker, please use caution when preparing your meal to prevent over filling. For smaller sauces and dips that call for 3 quarts or less, it is not recommended to alter the unit size. Crock-Pot® is a registered trademark and should not be used generically when referring to a ‘slow cooker’ within the recipes.
