Slow Cooker Chunky Roast Stew

Beef Stew 2

On our site we have over 300 Slow Cooker Recipes. That just shows you right there how much we truly LOVE them! I have had 2 Crock-Pot® Slow Cookers since I was married (going on 9 years now!) The one that I use the most is slowly dying. As I was looking at new ones, I realized just how much the technology has  advanced just in a few short years! Ha Ha Ha.

We have a new favorite slow cooker in town – the Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker with Stovetop-Safe Cooking Pot. (Where has this been all my life!) This Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker actually lets you use the ceramic pot to brown, sear or saute ingredients right on the
stove top! Then you just place it in your slow cooker and let it cook the rest of the day!
