Sometimes, life is busy.
Some days are REAAALLLLLY busy.
Other days are….just regular busy.
However busy your life is currently,
this Beef Stew is going to make dinner time a 
no fuss,
flavorful and tasty,
tummy’s full and happy 
kind of event.
That. Is something to be grateful for.
Dinner waiting and ready in the Crock Pot…
…a small, but enjoyable blessing, in deed.
The recipe below calls for all of your standard root vegetables…carrots, potatoes, onions. However I would imagine that some sliced mushrooms would also be delicious.  
This Beef Stew was cooked, ready and waiting for my when I arrived home from my wonderful swimming day on Tuesday. Want to read about it? You can right HERE.
Have a good one, everyone….hope your BUSY is the kind of BUSY you love.

  1. So, I love your recipes, but I hate mushrooms. What can I use in place of the CoM soup? I was thinking maybe cream of potato, thoughts?

  2. Made this last night for dinner with friends who were visiting from out-of-town. It was flavorful, thick (so many crockpot recipes are very soupy), and SO easy. I put it in the crockpot in the morning and didn’t have to do a thing till it was time to serve it. Highly recommended!
