  • Yield: 4-6 servings 1x


  • 2lbs of cubed stewing beef
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp veg oil
  • 1/2 tsp sage
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 25 oz canned whole tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 beef bouillon cube (try to get the reduced sodium kind)
  • 3lbs white potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 4 medium carrots, peeled and cut into coins
  • 3 medium onions, quartered


  1. Season the beef with salt and pepper and toss with the flour to coat.
  2. In a skillet with some oil brown up the beef. Don’t cook it all the way though – just brown it.
  3. Pour your beef and any drippings into the bottom of the slow cooker.
  4. Add to the slow cooker the remaining ingredients.
  5. When you add the tomatoes break them up a bit with a spoon.
  6. Combine all ingredients in the slow cooker so that everything is coated.
  7. Put the lid on and cook it on Low for 6-8 hours or High for 4-5 hours.
