2 lb beef stew meat (you can buy it already cubed)
1 package (1.5 oz) beef stew seasoning mix
1 bag (12 oz) frozen mixed vegetables
14 oz baby yellow potatoes
8 oz baby-cut carrots
1 carton (32 oz) beef flavored broth
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
(see my tips below)

See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos!


1:  Spray slow cooker with cooking spray.  Dump all the ingredients except the flour into the slow cooker and stir to mix.

2:  Cover and cook on High heat setting 5 to 6 hours, or Low heat setting 8 to 10 hours.

3:  Before serving (about 30 minutes before), remove 1/2 cup of the stew broth into small bowl and beat with 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, using whisk or fork, until smooth. Pour back into stew and mix. Continue cooking until thickened.

Darlene’s Tips: Adding the flour to a cup of cold water or cold broth instead of hot broth will make it easier to mix. Hot liquid can make it lumpy. You can also just skip the thickening step.  Add any other ingredients you want like onions, mushrooms, turnip, whatever!  You can buy any roast you like and cube it yourself.
