Poekitten's Beef Stew
3 cans beef broth
1 can diced tomato
a handful of baby carrots, cut in thirds
1/2 large potato, diced
small onion, diced
Garlic, diced (to taste)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
Greek Seasoning (I prefer Cavendar's)
1. Combine the flour, salt, pepper & greek seasoning in a shallow bowl or plate. Dredge the beef in the flour mixture. Heat some olive oil in a skillet; when it's hot, brown the beef.
2. In your crockpot, add the beef broth, diced tomato, carrots, potato, onion, garlic, parsley and beef. I cooked it on high for about 6 hours and it was perfect.
Note: I made a roux of the flour mixture and butter to hopefully thicken the stew but it didn't really work. It did add some nice flavor to the broth. This part is optional.
