Effortless Slow Cooker Beef Stew

Let's face it; summer is over. The kids are back in school, football season has begun. The days are getting shorter and the temperatures are beginning to cool.  Pretty soon our wood stove will be pumping heat throughout our cozy home. Ugh, I love it. We have this large stone fireplace in our living room surrounded by the two most comfortable micro-suede armchairs ever.  Nothing feels as much like home as sitting in front of the fire, room dimly lit, covered up in a fleece blanket, eating a bowl of this hearty and very easy beef stew after a long day.  The best part is, this beef stew recipe uses a Crock Pot, so it's effortless. Set it & forget it! 

2 lbs beef stew meat
4 potatoes, chopped
½ yellow onion, chopped
1 14.5 can diced tomatoes
1 cup celery, chopped
1 cup carrots, chopped
1 TBS basil
1 TBS oregano
½ TBS paprika
2 TBS minced garlic
½ TBS salt
1 tsp pepper
3 cubes of beef bouillon
1 TBS Worcestershire sauce
4-5 cups water

1. Brown stew meat in a large nonstick pan over high heat.
2. Add all ingredients to the crock pot and stir a bit to mix.
3. Cook stew in the crock pot for 7-8 hours on low.
