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 (fabulous healthy snacks to buy for weight loss, by the way), 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.
