Hearty Vegetable Beef Stew from a Slow Cooker

Here's a simple, yet satisfying recipe for vegetable beef stew made in a slow cooker. It can be cooked in a pot over a stove as well, but using a slow cooker makes it less of a hassle. It takes about 8 hours to make, so you'll have to plan your morning to have it ready for supper.

  • 1 pound beef chuck (cubed or cut into little pieces)
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 large (28 oz.) can whole tomatoes (chopped)
  • 1 (16 oz.) can cut green beans
  • 2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2-3 dashes cayenne pepper sauce
  • 2 (10 1/2 oz.) cans condensed beef bouillon
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 1 cup peas
  • 1 corn
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Brown meat with onion; drain off fat. Stir in remaining ingredients and add 1 or 2 cups water. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.

Sometimes I add potatoes, cut celery, chopped cauliflower and whatever else in the fridge that suits me at the time. And that's the fun thing about beef soup, it's compatible with a lot of ingredients.

Also, if I have time, I make a side salad to serve with the soup and it makes the meal that much tastier and healthier.
