Simple Supper Monday - Volume 37: Crockpot Beef Stew

A few weeks ago, I called for people to send me their BEST BEEF STEW recipes. This was due to the fact that, well, I had none. And I had a hankering for Beef Stew. "Hankering" is an old lady word, and I love every minute of it. But it also reminds me of "handkerchief," which is a bit gross and not as endearing.

I digress.

So, I implored you all for some Beef Stew recipes, and several came through. I promised I would post them. The first one I posted 2 weeks ago, and it came from my SIL, Laura. I made it. It was awesome. We ate every last drop.

I may or may not have licked the storage container.

Laura, bless her heart, sent me not ONE but TWO Beef Stew recipes. So today I thought I'd post the second one! Note: I haven't gotten to try this recipe, but Laura assured me it's super tasty. And it's a slow cooker recipe, so how could we go wrong?!?!

YUM! SIMPLE! DELICIOUS! This weekend is shaping up to be pretty chilly in the Philly Suburbs, so I might just have to whip this one up! I have one remaining Beef Stew Recipe that I will post next Monday. Believe it or not, it comes from my elementary school librarian! Yay for Facebook's reuniting powers!

So, stay turned for more recipes, gift ideas and a special write up about The Pioneer Woman's visit to PA! Lots of fun stuff this week!
