Food Tracking Momma Slow Cooker Tangy Beef Stew Vegetables

Add the meat and chopped vegetables into your slow cooker. I used the pre-cut beef stew meat available in most grocery stores. The onion, green pepper and the potatoes should be in rather large pieces. Peel and slice the carrots.

Add the remaining ingredients to a medium bowl and mix all together.

After that pour the mix over the beef and vegetables and then stir all together. Set the slow cooker to low and cook for 6-7 hours. I use a 6-quart crock pot and I love it. I fought with many other brands slow cookers and they always overcooked the food. This one always seems to cook just right.

When finished, mix the flour and cold water in a small container. Set slow cooker to high and add the cornstarch mix to thicken the sauce (about 10 minutes). If you make this recipe, please comment and let me know (and please rate it!)
