Crock Pot Beef Stew

Today was a perfect for beef stew! I pulled out the crock pot and had this simmering away all afternoon. By dinner time it was perfect.

Crock Pot Beef Stew

1 1/2 pounds of beef stew meat
1/2 cup of flour
3 large carrots
1 onion
3 small baking potatoes
3-4 sprigs of rosemary
2-3 cloves garlic
3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 can cream of mushroom soup
3-4 tbsp vegetable oil

Place 1/2 cup of flour in a large ziplock bag. Place stew meat in the bag and shake it around. In a cast iron skillet, heat some vegetable oil. Sear the stew meat in batches so you don't crowd the pan. (This step can be omitted, but the sear adds a nice flavor to the final stew.)

In a crock pot, place the chopped onion, large diced potatoes, chopped carrots, minced garlic and stew meat. In a large bowl mix the worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar and mushroom soup. Pour over beef. Add rosemary sprigs. Cook on low for 6 hours or until meat is tender.
