Linda's Crockpot Stew
I took a couple different recipes and made my own version. It came out perfect.
1-2lb stew meat
1 package Dried Onion Soup Mix
2 cups beef broth (I used Watkins Beef soup mix)
2 medium onions, chopped in big pieces
3-4 carrots chopped in big pieces
1-2 celery ribs chopped in big pieces
2-3 large potatoes chopped in big pieces
1 Large Bay Leaf (or 2-3 small)
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1 Tbsp tapicoa
Garlic powder or fresh to taste
Salt and Pepper to taste
In a ziploc bag, toss onion soup mix and stew meat. Put into crockpot (you could probably skip the bag - but just make sure it is all coated evenly)
Add the remainder of the ingredients and stir to coat evenly.
Cover and cook on high 4-5 hours or on low 8-10 hours.
Serve with homemade bread, optional :-)
If you have any leftover veggies like peas or green beans, you can add them in at the end.
