Mighty Tasty Beef Stew
2 pounds beef stew meat, (cut into bite-sized pieces) / 1 tsp Salt / 1 tsp pepper / 1 medium onion, finely chopped /2 celery ribs, sliced / 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced / 6oz can tomato paste / 32oz beef broth / 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce / 2 cups baby carrots / 4-5 small red potatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces (about 3 cups) / 1 tablespoon dried parsley / 1 teaspoon oregano / 1 cups frozen peas / 1 cup frozen corn / 1/4 cup flour / 1/4 cup water
1. Combine beef, celery, carrots, onion, potatoes, salt, pepper, garlic, parsley, oregano, Worcestershire sauce, beef broth, and tomato paste in the crock pot. I used a 6 qt crockpot for this stew. Cook on LOW for 10 hours or on HIGH for 6-7 hours.
2. About 30 minutes before serving, mix the flour and the water together in a small dish and pour into the crockpot. Mix until well combined. This will add a nice thickness to the stew. Next add in your frozen peas and corn. Continue cooking covered for 30 minutes.
