Crockpot Beef Stew Recipe

Ingredients

1.5 – 2 lbs beef stew meat
1 onion chopped
8 oz. mushrooms
3 carrots sliced
16 oz. beef broth (or water with bullion)
1 tsp garlic powder
2 bay leaves
splash of pepper
splash of Italian spices
8 oz. sour cream (I always use light sour cream and it tastes great)
¼ cup flour
½ cup water

Place stew meat in crockpot. Add carrots, onion, mushrooms, spices and both bay leaves. Pour broth over meat and vegetables. Cook on low for 7 - 8 hours. Take out bay leaves. In a separate bowl mix sour cream, flour and ½ cup water together. Then pour approx. 1 cup of broth from crockpot into sour cream mixture. Mix well. Pour sour cream mixture into crockpot and mix well. Turn crockpot to high and cook for 20-30 minutes to thicken gravy. Serve over egg noodles with a salad. Enjoy!
