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.
