  • Slow cooker stew help!

    I am having trouble finding a good slow cooker recipe for my stew meat that is calling to me from my freezer. Everything I can find online has potatoes or flour or other crap I won't eat. Any help would be great. Links, recipes, anything you have!

    My stew consists of throwing vegetables in pot, season meat, throw meat in, add water, turn on crock, and leave.

    Anyone with a real recipe would be appreciated!

      Substitute turnips for the potatoes and ditch the rest of the crap you don't want to eat. You can thank me later on the turnips.

          you can toss literally anything in there, it all depends on what you like.
          beautiful
          yeah you are

          Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

            I take my meat, season it with S&P and in the crockpot, I qtr onions, carrots, you can use parsnips or turnips but I still eat potatoes, a few cloves of garlic, some beef broth and let it cook. Simple and delish.

              Like everyone has said, you can throw virtually anything in there. As a general rule of thumb, you will get better results from more sturdy vegetables (ie, carrots, turnips, parsnips, onions, garlic, etc...)

              If you're looking for a recipe of sorts, we have a good pot roast recipe on our site.

                A Year of Slow Cooking

                This is a link to a site where a guy ate out of nothing but his crock pot for a whole year.

                I like lamb rubbed with a garam masala spice mix. Put in pot with 50/50 broth/red wine. Cook all day while trying not to drool on yourself.

                    I love Stephanie O'Dea's 365 Crockpot blog site. Her cookbook is just as good and something to check out.

                      Sear meat in bacon grease. Throw in crockpot. Add broth to come half way up ( or more) the hunk of meat. Throw in cider vinegar (not much, maybe 1-2 tbsp for a 6 qt crock pot), onion, garlic, carrots, herbs and spices, celery, turnips, and tomatoes or ro-tel. Cook until meat falls apart. Add peppers, bell peppers, broccoli and other less sturdy veggies. Cook until less sturdy veggies are correct consistency. Serve.

                        This could easily be tweaked to be a crock pot recipe. Do all the stove-top instructions on the stove-top or the flavor will suffer. But then transfer it all to the crock pot and let it go. I'd add the pearl onions and mushrooms about 2 hours before serving.

                        Enjoy!

                          Hey, it's good enough for hand grenades! Only suggestions I would make are:
                          - Brown meat in a skillet or dutch oven, then put it into the slow cooker.
                          - Deglaze said pan or dutch oven and put the pot liquor in the slow cooker.
                          - Sub potatoes for turnips, add parsnips and some greens like kale.
                          - Add spices liberally, but salt in stages.

                          It's one of those things where you don't need a recipe. You can use tapioca or arrowroot to thicken, or if really froggy, gelatin. I haven't triedxantham gum yet.

                            +1 to what everyone else is saying!

                            YAY freezer food -- Iceage Primal! It really IS just as simple as only chucking in the stuff you like. Change-up by sometimes browning the meat, sometimes don't. Sometimes have it in a bowl with pork rind "croutons", sometimes plate it up over a bed of broiler-roasted zuccini slices.

                              If it's a "dish" you're after, a dish with a name ... keep it simple ... keep it classic ... keep it French.

                              Beef Burgundy - Beef, whole mushrooms, onions (better, whole salad onions), carrot in good sized chunks, garlic, beef stock, good glug of red wine (French, of course ... make it a Bordeaux). Lid on cook 'til done. I'm doing one myself for tonight's dinner.
