Rancher's Beef Stew

(16 Votes)
6 Hr

The long-cooked taste of homemade beef stew doesn't require us to be home to monitor the pot on the stove-top. Our Rancher's Beef Stew simmers all day with chunks of fresh veggies and an easy sauce we make from beef broth and a duo of canned mushroom soup varieties.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 pounds lean beef stew meat
  • 1 3/4 cups beef broth
  • 1 (10-3/4-ounce) can golden mushroom soup
  • 1 (10-3/4-ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 onion, cut into half moons
  • 4 to 6 carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 3 large potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 1/2 cups water
What To Do:
  1. In a large skillet, brown stew meat, then place in a 5-quart or larger slow cooker.
  2. In a large bowl, combine broth, soups, and pepper; mix well. 
  3. Pour 1 cup of soup mixture into slow cooker.  Add onion, carrots, potatoes and remaining soup mixture. Stir in water.
  4. Cover and cook on low heat 6 to 8 hours, or until meat is very tender.  

Since your slow cooker is doing all of the work for you, why not surprise your gang with a batch of Brown Sugar Brownies for dessert? Imagine the look on their faces!
