Stew Recipe and Card Share

A couple of days ago, I shared a photo of the stew I had made and was asked how I made my stew. (card share to follow)

Well, to be honest, I don't have an actual recipe I follow, but here are the basic ingredients.

I start by putting my stew meat (cut into bite sized pieces) into my crock pot.  I then add the following ingredients:

1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 medium onion, chopped
2 ribs of celery, sliced (or I sometimes use celery salt)
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced (or I cheat and use garlic salt)
32 oz Beef Broth
2 cups of baby carrots
4-5 small potatoes, peeled and chopped into bite size pieces (about 3 cups)

I use a 6 qt crock pot and cook on high for about 5-7 hours depending on your crock pot with the lid on.  OR if I am going to be gone all day, then I might put it on low for about 10 hours.

I make a thickening agent with 1/4 cup of flour and 1/4 cup of water and add that to the stew to thicken it up (you can adjust that to your preference) and then add about 1 cup of either frozen or canned corn.

Cook, covered, for about 30 minutes more.  You can also add peas or other veggies....this is just how my family prefers it.
