Slow Cooker Beef Stew

Yield – 4 servings

Preparation Time – 10 minutes

Cooking Time – 8 hours


  • 1 lb. Stew Beef
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups baby carrots
  • 4 potatoes, washed and chopped
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • Salt/Pepper
  • 4 dinner rolls


  1. Put all ingredients in slow cooker and add 4 cups water, or enough to cover all the ingredients. (If you wish to add part water and part beef broth for added flavor, feel free!)
  2. Set slow cooker on low and cook for 8 hours.
  3. Serve Slow Cooker Beef Stew with warm rolls!

To Make as a Freezer Pack: add all the ingredients (except the rolls) to a large gallon size freezer baggie. Press flat and freeze. To cook, let thaw overnight in fridge and then add to slow cooker. If you need to thaw it further after it has been in the fridge overnight, place the bag in a bowl of warm water for 20 minutes, then load into the slow cooker.
