Beef stew or beef soup? You decide which way you want this!
- 2 lbs lean beef stew meat cut in cubes (I used bottom round)
- 1/4 cup chopped onions
- 1 cup carrots
- 1 cup fresh mushrooms sliced in half
- 1 can whole potatoes cut the potatoes in half -OR- 5 medium fresh potatoes, quartered
- 1 clove garlic crushed
- 1 pkg brown gravy mix
- 1 cup water
- 2 sprigs fresh thyme or 1/4 tsp dry
- 3 tbsp flour
- 1/4 cup water
Place carrots, mushrooms, garlic and onions (and fresh potatoes if using) in the bottom of a 4-5 quart slow cooker.
Place beef on top.
Mix up the gravy mix and water so there are no lumps.
Pour gravy mixture over the beef & veggies.
Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours, high 3-4 hours
If using canned potatoes, add them to the slow cooker during the last hour of cooking.
To thicken, mix the flour & water. Turn cooker to high and stir in the flour/water mixture. Stir until it begins to thicken. Cover and cook on high for 15 minutes.
