Crockpot Beef Stew....



Servings : 6 (1 Serving is measured with 2 Green Containers)

1 1/2 lbs Beef Stew Meat
Salt and Pepper
1/4 Cup Flour
1/2 lb Baby Carrots
1 Medium Onion (chopped)
2 lbs Red Potatoes (chopped into small cubes)
1 Tbl Olive Oil
4 Garlic Cloves (minced)
2 Cups Beef Broth
1 Tbl Dijon Mustard (NOT Honey Dijon, just the plain one :) )
1 Tbl Low Sodium Soy Sauce
1 Tbl Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tbl Honey
1 tsp Dried Rosemary
1/2 tsp Dried Thyme


1. Put the flour and a good amount of salt and pepper into the flour and mix together. Put
    the beef in a large bowl and sprinkle the seasoned flour on top and coat the meat. Set
2. Chop the onion. Wash the potatoes and chop into small cubes. Place carrots, chopped
    onion, cubed potatoes into the crockpot
3. In a large pan, heat the Olive Oil, add the minced garlic and and saute until almost brown
    and fragrant. Add the floured beef into the pan and brown the beef on all sides. Add the
    beef to the crockpot
4. In the same large pan, add the beef broth, mustard, low sodium soy sauce,
    worcestershire, honey, rosemary and thyme. Whisk together well over medium heat, and
    pour over the meat and vegetables once all ingredients are incorporated. Mix the meat,
    vegetables and sauce in the crockpot, put the lid on and cook on high for 4 hours, or low
    for 8 hours
5. Taste test the flavour and add salt if needed - not very much though, remember you are
    on the 21 day fix :)


  1. Hi I made this today and my family and I loved it! Yuuuuummmmmmm!

  2. Hi Tonya,
    Sorry for the delayed response, somehow didn't get a notification. SO glad you enjoyed this :) Thank you for giving it a try!

  3. Hey Kirsty...just put this in the crockpot!!! Can't wait to try. What I'm wondering is if we could count 1 red container also...due to the stew meat? Thank you for the great recipe!!

  4. The picture says 1/2 red, 1 green, 1 yellow, but by servings it says 1 serving is measured with 2 green?

    1. Yes, she is saying to portion out a full serving on your plate, FILL the green container twice :)

  5. If I were to sub radishes for the potatoes, would it still count as a carb because of the flour?

    1. I made it with butternut squash instead of the potatoes and it was amazing

  6. I also add green beans and mushrooms to increase the veggies. This stew is delicious

  8. What an awesome idea. I buy ground beef and chicken in 5lb bulk bags and have always divided it up ready to cook and stored in the freezer, but pre-cooking would save so much more time. Have you found that the cooked/reheated meat does or doesn’t absorb your spices as well? That would be my only concern, although I think you could avoid the bland meat scenario by putting some garlic, salt, pepper and some other “general” seasonings (parsley, minced onion) in there when you cook in the crock pot. I would think these are common enough to most things you do with the finished meat that you wouldn’t endanger the final dinner product.

  9. I’ve been using ground turkey for years. I personally don’t like the taste of ground beef. Turkey will take the flavor of any seasoning you add and it is much lighter than beef. These meatballs look fantastic. Whenever I’m making spaghetti my guys always want meatballs. Pinning!UpdateLand
