Notes

  • I love how this is a beef stew recipe without browning meat. Easy Peasy!
  • Substitute an extra can of cream of mushroom soup for the cream of celery, if desired.
  • Instead of carrots, celery and peppers, try some of your other favorite vegetables in this slow cooker beef stew including potatoes, mushrooms, onions or peas. 
  • To thicken, make a quick paste of softened butter, flour and cornstarch. Stir it in 20 minutes before serving, and you'll have a nice, thick gravy. 
  • Be sure to taste before serving. Add salt, black pepper and Worcestershire sauce, to taste.
