Slow Cooker Italian Stew Roast

Slow Cooker Italian Stew Beef

This recipe is part of the 20 Slow Cooker Freezer Packs from Costco for $150 meal plan. Note that this is written as a single recipe, but is doubled in the Costco meal plan, so you will have enough ingredients to make 2 packs.

This recipe is your basic roast ingredients…just using stew meat! Had to get a little creative to use up the stew meat in the plan! Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Italian Stew Roast

Yield – 4 servings

Preparation Time – 10 minutes

Cooking Time - 8 hours in slow cooker

Ingredients

  • ¼ of the stew beef, about 1 lb.
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 3 potatoes, sliced
  • 2 cups baby carrots
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms, optional
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

Assembly Instructions: Add all ingredients to the pack, in the order they were listed. Remove as much air as you can or vacuum seal the pack. Freeze up to 6 months in a refrigerator freezer, or 12 months in a deep freezer.

Cooking Instructions: Thaw the slow cooker pack in the refrigerator overnight, or in a bowl of warm water for about 30 minutes. If the pack is partially thawed, cook on low for 8-10 hours. If the pack is completely thawed, you can cook on high for 6 hours or low for 8 hours.

Side dish suggestion: This one-dish meal doesn’t need a side dish, unless you want to add one. I would suggest a simple green salad or broccoli.

We had this today. It was a bit dry and bland. We will be adding some broth and Tabasco the next time we make it. Are you sure that you didn’t switch the Beef Stew and Italian Stew Roast recipes? The Beef Stew calls for 1 tbsp of Italian seasoning while the Italian Beef Stew only calls for 1 tsp.

We don’t add any liquid? Just double checking. I’ve never used crock pot with out liquid.

Agreed, no liquid? It seems odd. There are a couple others that don’t have liquid either. Do we just add broth?

Just wondering if we are supposed to add broth to any of these recipes? I have never used a crockpot before and I see that I have tons of remaining broth from the grocery list after I finished making up all the packs.
