    My DH made this stew this week, and it is delicious!

    Crockpot Beef Stew

    3 potatoes, diced
    5 carrots, diced
    4 stalks celery, diced
    2 small onions, chopped
    1 head (not clove) garlic, minced
    1 large tomato, blanched and chopped
    4 T barley
    4 beef bouillon cubes
    1 3/4 pounds lean beef
    1/2 t rosemary
    1/2 t savory
    1 t salt
    1/2 t pepper
    2 T flour
    2 T corn starch

    Cube and brown the beef. Add flour to beef and stir together. Combine all ingredients except potatoes, corn starch, rosemary, and savory in a crock pot. Cover with water. Cook on high 12-24 hours. 1 hour before serving, add potatoes, rosemary, and savory. Immediately before serving, thicken with corn starch.

    Linda, This looks great. My family loves beef stew, and I love cooking in my crock pots. Also, I think 3=points for 1-cup of beef stew is pretty darn good.

    Thank you. I will come back to tell you how we liked it after I make it.

    I thought that was amazingly low, too, but we put the recipe in Mastercook and measured the yield, so it must be true!

    Surprizingdaughter, I don't know what kind of beef it was. I have never bought beef in my life--and that's saying something since I'm 37!! My DH is the cook in the family, and when left to my own devices, I eat chicken.

    The beef was left over in the freezer from when I sent my DH to the store to buy the meat for a recipe that called for "lean round steak". I don't know what exactly he bought. I'll ask him if he can remember what it was, and I'll post it if I get a positive answer, but don't hold your breath! [img]tongue.gif[/img]
