We all love a delicious homemade beef stew, but sometimes it can be a hassle to make. Slow cooker beef stew is the easy alternative to making this hearty dish on the hob. It's convenient to make and incredibly rich and flavorful, with plenty of beef mixed with a tasty medley of fresh vegetables, herbs, and spices. It's a fantastic comfort dish you can make during the winter and is a perfect make-ahead recipe if you're looking to spend less time in the kitchen during the week.

How to Make Crockpot Beef Stew

Slow cooker beef stew is outrageously easy to make. Just brown the beef and saute the onions, then pop all the ingredients into your slow cooker, set it to high, and go about your day. The key to a great-tasting beef stew is using the right cut. In this case, opt for chuck steak. It's a tougher cut but becomes incredibly tender when cooked for a long time.

Tips for the Best Crockpot Beef Stew

– To make this recipe keto-friendly and gluten-free, use a low-carb gluten-free flour like almond flour to coat the beef, and make sure your cornstarch brand is gluten-free (most are).

– While 4 to 5 hours on high or 8 to 9 hours on low is usually long enough for this beef stew, you can cook it longer for more tender beef.

– For a richer flavor, add some red wine or stout beer to your beef stew. If you decide to try this, substitute 1 cup of beef stock for wine.
