Crock Pot Beef Stew

Beef Stew is one of those comfort foods I never tire of.  Tender pieces of meat with loads of veggies cooked in a rich broth.  The aroma as the stew cooks is mouthwatering.   Wait until you taste this stew. Goodness in every bite.  Meat that is so tender it could melt in-your-mouth and veggies that are flavorful and cooked to perfection.   And the broth - so rich and delicious you need a piece of bread to mop up every drop.

This stew is cooked in a crock pot.  All of the ingredients are placed in the crock pot, stirred, and set on low to cook for 6-8 hours.  Taste and adjust the seasonings if needed.  Ladle the stew into bowls, serve with a crusty piece of bread and enjoy:)
