  • Slow cooker or Instant Pot


  • 3 pounds stew meat
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • cups beef broth
  • 1 Tablespoon ketchup
  • cup flour
  • 7 Tablespoons apple juice
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • ½ cup fat free sour cream
  • 6 russet potatoes baked


  • Place the stew meat, salt, pepper, and onion in the slow cooker. Stir to distribute the seasonings and onion.
  • In a small bowl, combine the garlic salt, Worcestershire sauce, beef broth and ketchup. Pour over the meat.
  • Cover and cook for 7-9 hours on low or 4-5 hours on high.
  • About 30 minutes before serving, combine the flour and apple juice in a small bowl, whisking vigorously to combine well.
  • Pour the flour mixture into the slow cooker, whisking quickly to mix in the roux with the stew meat and juices and to avoid lumps.
  • Add the mushrooms and stir.
  • Cook on high for 30 minutes.
  • Stir in 1/2 cup sour cream right before serving.
  • Serve over baked potatoes.


This also makes a great freezer meal! I store the leftovers in a freezer-safe container and then thaw in the refrigerator (usually takes about a day) and reheat over medium-low heat in a saucepan on the stove.
