Slow Cooked Beef Stew Recipe

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! As promised, I am providing my recipe for tonight’s dinner on the blog incase you want to make it too! Except I guess you won’t be able to make it until tomorrow because it took about 8 hours.

I’ll separate the recipe for the beer bread into another post so as not to confuse you, but just click HERE to see it.

Here is what you’ll need:

  • PAM or some other grease spray
  • 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can of cream of celery soup
  • 2 lbs of stew meat
  • 2 packs of onion soup mix
  • 1 Tbsp paprika
  • 5 carrots- peeled and chopped
  • 1 white onion- chopped
  • 4-6 red potatoes- diced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 clove garlic- minced
  • 1 bag of frozen peas

In a large ziplock baggie, combine the meat, onion soup mix, paprika and even a pinch of salt and pepper if you’d like. Then shake it around until each cube of meat is covered.

Spray the crock pot with a layer of PAM then place the meat in a flat layer along the bottom. Set it on high for 8 hours.

Chop the carrots, onion, potatoes and garlic clove, then place them on top of the meat.

Place the 2 bay leaves in as well, then pour the 2 cans of cream of mushroom and 1 can of cream of celery.

I sprinkled some salt, pepper and garlic salt on the top too but thats optional.

I added the bag of peas about 4 hours in.


And there you have it! It was delicious and super filling!

Slow Cooked Creamy Chicken & Wild Rice Soup Recipe 

Here is yet another soup recipe. If you’re surprised, then I’m surprised that you’re surprised. As I’ve said before, soup is my favorite thing to make.. But this isn’t your average soup. This soup is down with the thickness if you know what I mean. It also requires a slow cooker which means it’s super easy and the perfect meal for a Sunday supper. 

Here what you need: 

  • 6 cups of chicken broth 
  • 2 cups of water
  • 6 carrots- chopped 
  • 1 bunch of celery -chopped 
  • 1/2 white onion -diced
  • 1-2 garlic cloves -minced
  • 4 chicken breasts 
  • 2 bay leaves 
  • 1 cup of wild rice blend 
  • 2 tbsp of any salt-free seasoning blend of your choosing

For the creamy-ness

  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil 
  • 1/2 cup flour 
  • 2 cups milk 
  • Salt and pepper 

Chop carrots, celery and onion and mince garlic. 

Set slow cooker either to low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. I reccomend 8 since I set it to 4 and the veggies were not as soft as I would have liked them to be. 

Add veggies to slow cooker 

   
 

Add chicken breasts, broth and water to slow cooker. 

  

Add rice, bay leaves and seasoning blend.

  
   

About 40 minutes before cooking time is complete, remove chicken and start to make the creamy mixture. 

I made the mistake of using a pan instead of a pot which made whisking difficult… Learn from my mistake and use a pot. 

The remaining steps are explained in the photographs below:
