Everyone’s favorite comforting beef stew made easily in the crockpot! The meat is SO TENDER and the stew is rich, chunky and hearty!
We had another heat wave in LA again.
And when I say heat wave, I mean it’s 95 degrees.
In the beginning of October, of course.
Then it was 55 the next day. The following week, it was 98.
You know I made this beef stew when it was in the high 90s.
Not when it was our one day of winter.
But fortunately for my slow cooker, I barely had to lift a finger.
I just ate this piping hot bowl of comforting stew with the AC on my face.
2 (1 oz) packages dry onion soup mix
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 pounds lean beef stew meat (cut up into bite sized pieces)
5 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
2 to 3 cups baby carrots
1 small Onion, chopped
2 (10 oz.) cans cream of celery soup
1 cup ketchup
In a large plastic bag, combine the dry onion soup mix and paprika. Add in meat and shake the bag to coat meat with the seasonings. (You may have to do that step in two batches, for all the meat to fit) Once meat is coated, spread out evenly into a greased 7 quart crock pot.
Top meat evenly with diced potatoes, carrots and onion.
Mix the cream of celery soup and ketchup in a small bowl. Pour mixture over the meat and vegetables.
Cover crock pot with lid. Cook on low heat for 8 hours or until meat is cooked through and vegetables are tender. Stir to combine everything then.
