This stew is easy-peasy! It is one of the first meals I make as soon as it become warm enough to light a fire in our fireplace.
2 lbs stew meat
2 cartons beef broth
2 packets McCormick Slow Cookers Beef Stew
Add 2 packets of McCormicks Slow Cooker Hearty Beef Stew.
Your secret weapon!
Season flour with salt and pepper.
Flour stew meat.
Heat a few teaspoons olive oil in a pan.
Thoroughly brown stew meat in small batches.
Combine in a crock pot and cover with the beef broth.
Add chopped parsley.
Here is the really hard part - Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
An hour before your ready to partake in this wonderfully smelling stew add button mushrooms(7 or 8 cut in half) and a splash of frozen green peas.
Taste for seasoning. I generally find I need to adjust the seasoning with a teaspoon of salt and a 1/2 teaspoon pepper(the freshly ground stuff).
Serve over egg noodles.
I promise you will not regret adding this to next weeks dinner menu.
