Slow Cooker Beef Stew

I love to make beef stew. Especially when it's cold outside.

And I love to eat beef stew. Anytime.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew

3 T. olive oil
2 lb. beef stew meat
1/4 cup flour
1 envelope Beef Stew seasoning mix
1 t. thyme
1 t. salt
1/2 t. black pepper
2 T. dry minced onion
2 T. Worchestershire
4 cups of regular V-8 juice
2 cups water
2 t. beef bouillon crystals or 2 beef bouillon cubes
1 c. baby carrots
5 medium potatoes, skin on & cubed

Heat the oil in a large pot. Mix together flour, seasoning mix, thyme, salt & pepper and coat the beef cubes with it in a large bowl. Brown the meat in the hot oil. Place browned meat in a 5-6 qt. slow cooker and cover with onion, cubed potatoes and baby carrots. Pour water and beef bouillon into the hot pan the meat was browned in, and heat to boiling to deglaze the pan.  Add Worchestershire and V-8 juice to hot beef broth. Pour over meat and vegetables in slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours, or High for 4-6 hours. Stir before serving. Serve with hot rolls or cornbread.
