Excellent Beef Stew for We Got You Covered #SundaySupper

The #SundaySupper team have got you covered for this week of recipes. What does that mean? It can mean, “Need a good stew recipe?” We have got you covered with this Excellent Beef Stew recipe!!! Or it can mean when something is cooked with a cover on it, again like this Excellent Beef Stew done in a slow cooker. It is also up for interpretation!!! We could let our minds wander to where we wanted to go with this one. It also included, like the icing on a cake is a covering, or the crisp topping on a casserole. You have to check out all the recipes to see where this one has taken the individual. How exciting, I can’t wait to see what everyone is up to.

Well for me, I picked this Excellent Beef Stew recipe. I am not even sure where this recipe came from, I believe it is our creation, it is in Ken’s handwriting. It makes an enormous amount of stew. I wanted to make it in the slow cooker so I reduced the ingredients somewhat so that it would fit, otherwise I use my enormous pot that barely fits in my oven. This is a more manageable amount.

There are a lot of ingredients but that is what makes it so delicious. It is also very easy to prepare as there is no browning of the meat. I know, crazy right? You will never know as this has so much flavor you can omit that step and just put the meat straight into the Crockpot. I love it!! So little mess!! It is truly a one pot stew. We used to put in a package of spicy onion soup but they don’t make it anymore so I have added some crushed red pepper flakes and it does the job perfectly. The tapioca thickens it awesomely as it cooks, it really is an Excellent Beef Stew, after the first time we made it, that is what Ken called it!!

This recipe can be easily gluten free if you make sure your onion soup mix is compliant. ENJOY!!!

  1. I imagine the red wine and veggies enhance the meat beautifully, Tara… Always good to have gluten-free options. And great to have a slow cooker recipe…as Santa is bringing one soon on his sleigh =)

  9. I am a huge fan of beef stew, especially one that doesn’t require browning but promises all this flavor. What a great recipe, Tara! Minit tapioca is not an ingredient I am familiar with but I am going to look for it.

  15. It’s getting cold for Vancouver (0 degrees – I know you’re used to way colder temps but it’s pretty darn frosty!) so this stew is the perfect meal right now. I woudn’t have thought to add the tapioca to thicken the sauce. What a great idea!
