    I am looking for a beef stew recipe for the crock pot...I need to be able to throw everything in at 7am and have a wonderful thick stew by 5.

    I dont have time to pre cook everything (kinda defeats the point of the crock pot)
    I cant mix the cornstarch mixed with cold water about 3 hours before... (no one is home)

    whats can I do?... do you have one you would like to share?

    Easy to make!

    # 2 lbs of beef cubed for stew
    # 1/2 teaspoon salt
    # 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    # 1 clove garlic, minced
    # 1 bay leaf
    # 1 teaspoon paprika
    # 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    # 1 onion, chopped
    # 1 1/2 cups beef broth
    # 3 potatoes, diced
    # 4 carrots, sliced
    # 1 stalk celery, chopped
    # 1 large can of V8 juice

    Cover, and cook on Low setting for 10 to 12 hours, or on High setting for 4 to 6 hours.

    Here's mine I made the other day! I have a 5qt crockpot so you might have to adjust based on how big yours is...

    2+ lbs Stewing beef (thawed or not)
    1/2 bag of baby carrots
    1 sliced onion
    4-6 yellow potatoes (prewashed)
    1 packet of McCormick's beef stew seasoning mix
    enough water to cover the bottom of the crock pot
    a dash of worchestershire sauce
    a little ketchup

    Cook on low for 9 to 10 hours

    This feeds hubby and I for a few dinners and lunches!

    I've done that one too but I use the beefy onion with a can of cream of mushroom soup to make a beefy/mushroom gravy roast--GREAT with mashed potatoes! [​IMG]
