As Simple as Stew

I don’t know about you, but I hate coming home from a long day at work or class and dinner isn’t ready. Well, life has a solution for that and it’s called the crock pot. I recently just invested in one and it’s great!

Tonight for dinner I decided to go with one of my mom’s recipes: beef stew. I am usually more of a chicken person, but the beef was very tender tonight. I didn’t really have to do much, so it turned out wonderful!

List of ingredients (Keep in mind this feeds about 5 people. Alter the ingredients as needed):
1 Package of beef cubes.
2 -3 celery stalks (diced)
Potatoes (about 5 med.size)halved
1 Lg Onion (cut )
Carrots(diced or mini carrots)approx. 1 cup
Beef Gravy( 2 Lg Jars)
Bay Leaf
1 Bag of Egg Noodles( Optional)

Directions:
1.First task is to salt and pepper the meat and then put it in the crock pot.
2.Next, Add Gravy and mix.
3.Then add the remaining ingredient.
4.You can then add more salt and pepper if desired.
5.Now go do whatever errands the day holds and allow it to cook all day on low.
6.When you are ready to eat grab a bag of egg noodles to cook and top it off with the beef stew.
