Simple Slowcooker Beef Stew

I made this easy slowcooker meal for today’s dinner, and with a few tips it was to quick to organise.

Ingredients

1kg chopped chuck steak
250g mushrooms chopped
3 small sweet potatoes chopped chunky
3 carrots chopped chunky
1 cup chicken stock / bone broth
2 tins tomatoes
1 Tbs Paprika
1 tsp garlic
Salt and pepper
A few sprigs fresh thyme – stems removed (use 1 tsp dried thyme if you don’t have fresh)

Place all ingredients into your slowcooker. I had the beef already diced and frozen from the week before, which I had taken out of the freezer the night before. This way half the prep is done already. I chopped all other ingredients into the slowcooker with the meat and added all the spices. Place the slowcooker on Low for 6-8 hours (mine cooks really hot so I use a 24hr timer to make sure it doesn’t overcook)

Tips
  • Pre cut all slowcooker meat ahead of time and freeze in freezer bag for easy slowcooker meal options later in the week or for a few weeks later!
  • Put all ingredients into slowcooker the night before while you’re making another meal and put the insert into the fridge for the next day.
  • Prepare all ingredients for your slowcooker meal on the weekend for an easy option so there is no prep to be done during the week.
