When you have a busy week like most of us, here is a delicious Beef Stew Recipe to make everyone happy for dinner. You can add the veggies that you like best too. This makes a really tasty Stew Gravy
1 (3-4 pound) boneless chuck roast cut into chunks or Stew meat if you prefer
1 1/2 teaspoons Seasoning Salt (can use salt less seasoning too, I make my own)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 onion, sliced thin
3 bay leaves
3 or 4 beef bouillon cubes, crushed
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup white wine or beef broth
fresh baby carrots
Potatoes, cut chunk style with skins left on, (wash first)
2 cups sliced mushrooms
Can add a bag of frozen peas too about 30 minutes before done.
In a skillet over high heat, place meat in skillet, season with season salt and quickly sear stew meat chunks until brown in oil. Place meat in a slow cooker, and add sliced onions, bay leaves, crushed bouillon cubes, garlic, and cream of mushroom soup. Add the white wine and cover with enough water to cover all of the ingredients. Cook on the low setting for 8 hours. Add the veggies on top and cook. This makes a nice creamy gravy very flavorful.
