Slow-cooker Vegetable Beef Stew

Submitted by: SEGANITA

Introduction

Stick it in a Crock-pot and let it cook all day Stick it in a Crock-pot and let it cook all day
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 large bag of frozen mixed vegetables (20 oz.)
    2-3 medium potatoes
    1 medium onion
    64 oz. V8 juice (use low-sodium version if you'd like)
    1 lb. lean stew meat (I use boiling beef)
    1 tbsp cooking oil

Directions

1. Cut the stewing beef into small cubes.
2. Brown the meat on low heat in 1 tbsp. of oil to keep it from sticking in the skillet.
3. Add the stew meat and juices to the Crock-pot, along with the V8 juice, and turn it to Low setting.
4. Peel potatoes and cut into approximately 1" cubes. Add to pot.
5. Slice onion and add as much as desired. I usually do approximately 3/4 cup.
6. Add frozen vegetables to stew.
7. Salt and pepper to taste.

- Cook on low for 8 hours or until tender.
- Serve with crackers or hot rolls.

I usually make the whole pot and freeze half, because my 3 1/2 quart Crock-pot makes about 12 1-cup servings.

    I made this for my husband and I. We both loved it. We have leftovers to eat for lunches now to. He asked me about where I got the idea of the V8 juice. Of course I had to tell him Spark people recipe. My brother in law don't even like vegetable soup and he ate three bowls. - 6/26/09
