Slow Cooker Beef Stew - Recipe Instructions:

4 medium potatoes (peeled & cubed)
3 large carrots, peeled & diced
3 stalks chopped celery

Mix the following ingredients in a bowl and then pour over the beef and vegetables:
3 cups boiling water mixed with...
1 - 40 g package of Onion Soup Mix
1 Beef bouillon cube

Slow Cooker Beef Stew - Cooking Instructions
If you are in a hurry cook on high for 2-1/2 hours, and then turn down to low for 2 more hours. If you have a little more time to spare cook on low for 6-8 hours, or until potatoes and carrots are tender.

No extra thickening of the beef stew gravy should be required. It turns out perfectly for me every time.

Makes about 8 servings (1.5 cups per serving)

    The flavor is worth 4.5 stars (It was a little too salty. Next time I'll cut down on the dry soup mix). However, the calorie count is way off. The quantities under "Ingredients Details" are far less than those given in the recipe. My version clocked in at 320 calories (with additional veggies). - 5/11/08

    It turned out really good but my meat was a little dry for some reason. Also, I'd suggest less rosemary because it was a little strong and I didn't even use the amount suggested. Otherwise it was wonderful. - 2/5/09
