Ingredients

    Beef stew meat, 1.5 lbs or 1 pkg
    Tomato Sauce, 3.5 cans
    Diced Tomatoes, 2 cans
    Idaho Potatoes, 4-6 med.peeled and quartered
    Baby Carrots 1 large pkg.
    Spinach, 1 pkg. (10oz)
    Garlic, minced approx. 2 tbsp
    Oregano, 1 tbsp.
    Basil, 1tbsp.

    Marjoram, 1 tbsp.
    Sage, 1 tbsp.
    Thyme 1 tbsp.
    Sea Salt, to taste (1-2 tbsp.)
    Garlic Powder, to taste


Tips

The measurements of the spices are just a suggestion.
I sometimes go light or remove the potatoes when my diet calls for little or no starch. The stew tastes just fine without them.
I also try to use fresh herbs when possible and organic meat and vegetables.
If the stew is too thick, try adding a little bit of water while it is simmering or another half cup of tomato sauce.


Directions

Prep:
Peel and quarter the potatoes, peel carrots (if needed), and rinse spinach.

Cut meat into med. sized pieces and lightly sprinkle with garlic salt or powder.

Mix ingredients into the slow cooker.

1. Add cans of tomato sauce
2. Drain diced tomatoes and add to slow cooker.
3. Add spices.
4. Simmer on low for 5-7 hours or until the meat and potatoes are tender.
