Mom’s Slow Cooker Beef Stew

Growing up, my mom would make this stew for dinner and I remember the house smelling amazing! We would have biscuits with it and dip it into the stew as we ate. It was a favorite of mine, even as a kid.

Last week, my mom made this stew and I realized I had never blogged the recipe with you all before. Since she lives about 4 hours away, I asked her to take pictures and send them to me. Thanks mom!!

Not only is this dish hearty, full of potatoes, carrots, and beef…..but it is also packed with flavor. With those winter nights ahead, this stew is just the thing to make! Take the night off from cooking and let your slow cooker do the work!!

  • 6-8 medium red potatoes, quartered
  • 6-8 carrots, chunked
