It’s snowing outside . . . the ground is covered in snow. It’s April, but it looks more like January! Ug! At least it gives me a reason to enjoy this warm beef stew one more time! Warm comfort food at its finest! :)This recipe can easily be made into a freezer meal that literally takes only a couple of minutes to prepare – just read the instructions of the recipe for directions on how to make this a quick and easy freezer meal!
One of the easiest recipes I have ever made - and it's super hearty and filling! This also can be made into a freezer meal and is so nice to pull out of the freezer on a day when you don't have time to cook.
Place beef cubes at the bottom of the crock pot. Layer carrots, then potatoes, placing bay leaf on top.
In a separate bowl, mix remaining ingredients and pour over beef and veggies.
Cover with lid and cook on low 6-10 hours.
To make this a freezer meal, Place all ingredients in a resealable gallon-sized freezer bag. Mix together and zip bag closed.
When ready to eat, remove from freezer and thaw in fridge for 24 hours. Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray and pour contents of bag into slow cooker. Cook on LOW for 7-10 hours (or HIGH for 5-6 hours).
