Beef Stew (Gluten-Free, With A Lot Of Vegetables)

Preparation

1
Wash your veggies.
2
Peel the carrots, and the outer layer off the onion.
3
Trim the ends off the radishes, the celery, and any bad places on the potato. You can peel the potato if you wish, I didn’t.
4
Chop all the veggies into big chunks.
5
Make sure all the stew meat is approximately the same size, so it will cook at the same rate.
6
Add all ingredients in the slow cooker.
7
Cook on low for 8-9 hours. (amount of liquid and time may have to be adjusted depending on the size of your slow cooker. I used a 3.5 quart oval cooker. I’m sure this would also work for a 4 quart cooker. You would need more liquid for a 6 quart cooker, and I’m not sure about the time, but I’m pretty sure it’d still take about 8 hours.)

About

You really don’t have to add as many veggies as I did. But I had them, and some were starting to wilt so I really wanted to make sure and use them. Some people are real purist about Beef Stew and say all you really need is Beef and Potatoes. I may have to try that sometime, but I really like that this is a one dish meal. All your veggies and everything are included in one pot.
