Slow Cooker Beef Stew a la Lynn


Good wintertime meal. Serve with crusty French baguette to sop up the gravy.















2 ½ pounds stewing beef
cut into 1-inch cubes
¼ cup all-purpose flour
plus 1 tablespoon
¾ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
freshly ground
½ teaspoon garlic powder
2 whole bay leaves
¾ teaspoon paprika
¾ teaspoon thyme
dried, crushed, or ground marjoram
1 pinch creole seasoning
Emeril's "BAM" preferably
1 ½ teaspoons worcestershire sauce
2 cups beef stock
1 teaspoon brown sauce
preferably "Gravy Master"
1 large sweet vidalia onions
3 medium new potatoes
Red Bliss or Yukon Gold, diced into 1-inch pieces
5 medium carrots
2 stalks celery
1 cup peas, frozen
not "baby peas;" do not thaw
1 cup mushrooms, button
sliced thickly


In a large ziplock bag, combine flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder, thyme, paprika and "BAM." Shake to combine; add beef cubes and shake to thoroughly coat.

Spray inside of crock with cooking spray. Add all the vegetables (except the frozen peas), bay leaves, Worcestershire sauce and Gravy Master. Stir well; cover with the beef broth.

Cover and cook on LOW setting for 10 to 12 hours, or on HIGH setting for 4 to 6 hours, or start on LOW for 10 hours, then switch to HIGH for 1½ hours.

Stir in frozen peas during the last ½ hour of cooking. If need be, thicken stew with a cornstarch slurry (1 Tbs. cornstarch mixed with a small amount of cold water).

Shut off power and unplug unit. Serve hot with crusty French bread.


If meat and vegetables are prepped in advance and refrigerated, remove from refrigerator ½ hour before assembling in crock to let them come to room temperature.
