Expert Tips

Remember to cut the meat into equal sized chunks so that they cook evenly.

People tend to believe that stews are complicated, but they really aren't. If you use the traditional method, you might need a little more time, but with the help of a slow cooker all you'll need to do is add the ingredients and set it to cook. Besides being a favorite, it's also economical and can satisfy the whole family.

Though the slow cooker doesn't require attention, it does need a bit of time. I recommend starting it the day before or early in the morning.

Directions

  • 1 Mix the flour with the salt and pepper in a bowl.
  • 2 Add the meat and mix to cover well.
  • 3 Place the meat in the slow cooker.
  • 4 Add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well.
  • 5 Cover the pot and let cook on the low setting.
  • 6 Let cook for 10-12 hours.
  • 7 Serve with rice, pasta or quinoa, though it's not necessary. Don't forget to serve with warm bread to dip in the stew.
