Crock Pot Beef Stew

Crock-Pot Beef Stew


2 lb cubed beef
2 cups of beef or chicken stock (or 1 cup stock and 1 cup wine or beer)
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 medium onion, chopped
2 stalks of celery, roughly chopped
2 large carrots, peeled and chopped
1 tablespoon of paprika                                                                                  6-8 oz Fresh green beans, chopped


Brown cubed meat in a pan with some garlic powder, lemon pepper and Italian seasoning.

Chop celery, onions, carrots and green beans.

Add everything to the crock pot on low for 8 hours.

Right before serving if you would like to thicken the juice like a gravy ladle it out into a saucepan and whisk in a little cornstarch and return to crock pot when thickened.

Serve over or beside my Cilantro Lime Brown Rice

Also, a side of broccoli would go good with this.
