Crockpot Beef Stew

How wonderful would it be to throw everything in the crockpot before you go to work, and come home to a house filled with wonderful aromas and dinner already finished?? This is a great recipe (one of the family favorites)...especially in the winter!

** DISCLAIMER: All of my crockpot recipes are prepared to fit a 6 qt. may choose to lessen the amount of each ingredient in order to make things FIT!


3lbs. beef stew meat (diced into 3/4 inch cubes
3 tablespoons of cajun seasoning (salt and pepper with an extra kick!)
2 tablespoons of oil
1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
3-4 small red potatoes (quartered)
1/2 medium sized onion sliced
4 stalks of celery
2 - 1lb pkg of fresh baby carrots
2 - 12 oz. jars of beef gravy
1 - large can of diced tomatoes (undrained)
1/2 cup cold water



Place the flour, salt and pepper into a large ziplock bag and toss stew meat until well coated. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, add coated beef and stir for about 5 minutes until browned. Set aside.

Layer potatoes, onions, celery and carrots in the crockpot. Add browned meat and any leftover flour mixture. Top with gravy and tomatoes.

Cover and cook on low setting for 8 to 10 hours. About 10 minutes before serving, blend water and 3 tablespoons of flour until smooth....stir into stew. Increase heat setting to high, cover and cook an additional 10 minutes or until thickened.

This dish goes well with a small dinner salad and warm sourdough bread with butter.
