This super easy beef stew uses only five ingredients and is healthy and delicious.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 8 hours

Total Time: 8 hours, 20 minutes

Yield: 4-6 servings


  • 4 medium red potatoes
  • 1-1/2 lbs. beef stew meat
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 14 oz. can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 cups water
  • 3 cups frozen stir fry bell peppers and onions


Scrub potatoes and cut each into quarters. Place in bottom of 4 quart slow cooker. Mix flour, salt and pepper and toss with beef to coat. Add to crockpot. Add undrained tomatoes and water and stir.Cover crockpot and cook on low for 7-8 hours until beef and potatoes are tender. Add stir fry vegetables. Cover and cook on low for 30-40 minutes until vegetables are hot and tender.

It says to add salt and pepper to the flour, but I threw in a dash of turmeric, and a dash and a half each of onion and garlic powder and I am substituting 3 cups of frozen broccoli/carrots/cauliflower for the stir fry vegetables.. BTW, I am DEATHLY allergic to raw onions. And I thought I’d tell you that so you can send me easy slow cooker recipes that do not call for onions. On the other hand, I do have this ingredient conversion chart handy as well.


And now, you have it.
