COOK'S NOTES FOR EASY SLOW COOKER BEEF STEW RECIPE

After preparing and writing up a few of our beef slow cooker recipes we began to wonder if it was really necessary to brown steak before adding it to the slow cooker. We came to the conclusion that it was a waste of valuable time. Click here for our tests which enabled us to come to this conclusion.

This is a three stage recipe. The first stage is preparing the vegetables which can be done in the morning or the night before with the vegetables being stored in a plastic bag in the fridge.

The second stage is turning on your slow cooker and putting all the ingredients in it. Leave it to cook for about eight hours (anywhere between seven and nine hours is fine).

When you come home stir in a few herbs and cook for 30 minutes. Serve with chunky bread and enjoy a delicious meal. If you want to individualise this recipe then a couple of finely chopped celery sticks is an excellent addition as is a couple of teaspoons of mustard.
