Crock-Pot-Mini Beef Stew

I love my mini crock pot. It's great for serving fondues and dips and meals for 3-4 people. With just my boyfriend and I, it cooks just the right amount for each of us and still plenty of left overs for lunch the next day. I find it tricky to measure and have the right amounts of everything though. Most recipes are for larger crock pots that serve 6 or more. I find that cutting a recipe in half can still be too much for my size. Just under half is about right. Luckily, crock pot recipes are fairly forgiving.

I made this amazing beef stew with such simple and inexpensive ingredients. The recipe came from an Eating Well slow cooker magazine.

Potato, Celery, Carrot, Onion, Garlic (not in the original recipe), and beef

Add the seasoning with a little flour and the beef broth and stir.

Then add the chopped ingredients.

Let sit for about 6 hours, stirring occasionally.

And that's all there is to it! Just some chopping and then you can let dinner cook itself while you get on with your day!!
Have a great Day!!
