This is an awesome crockpot beef stew.


  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 lbs lean stew beef (I tend to cut this in half and increase the veggies)
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 tsp salt, or to taste
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 6 carrots, cut in pieces (I add more)
  • 6 medium potatoes, cut in pieces
  • 1/3 cup cold water blended with 3 tablespoons flour 


Combine flour, paprika, and garlic powder in a ziploc bag; add stew beef and toss to coat. Brown coated beef in hot oil in a large skillet; transfer to crockpot. Add the remaining ingredients except for the water and flour mixture. Cook on low for 8-10 hours, until veggies are tender. About 30 mins before serving, add flour/water mixture to the pot. Turn to high and cook until thickened. Serves 6-8
