After you brown the beef, the slow cooker does the rest. All the fresh vegetables and the finishing gravy really add to this simple meal.

  • Servings: 6


2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 lb Stew Meat or London Broil, cut into 1 ½ x 2" pieces
1 Large Onion, chopped
3 Potatoes, cubed
3 Carrots, sliced
3 stalks Celery, sliced
½ cup Ketchup
2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tbsp Dark Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp Paprika
½ tsp Dry Mustard
2 cups Beef Stock
¼ cup Water
¼ cup Flour


Heat a large pan over medium high heat. Add olive oil and sear meat on all sides then remove. Place beef in a slow cooker and cover with the onion and other vegetables. In a small bowl, mix together ketchup, Worcestershire, brown sugar, paprika, dry mustard and beef broth. Pour mixture over meat and vegetables then cook on low for 10 hours. During the last half hour of cooking, mix the flour and water together and pour over meat, stir in then turn heat to high .
