Fall Crockpot Beef Stew

I know it’s like a million degrees out right now {at least in So Cal} but this recipe just had to be made. Maybe it’s because of the heat but it being the beginning of September, I have been craving the Fall. I am ready to start wearing scarves and boots and super cute sweaters with leggings. I want pumpkin breads and cinnamon rolls. I want blankets and cozy movies on cold nights. But I also want warms soups. That’s where the Beef Stew comes in. And what makes this stew better is that the crockpot takes care of keeping the oven off and the house cool. Plus, it’s just a really great recipe 🙂

Instructions
  1. Set crockpot to high.
  2. Season beef cubes with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Put the olive oil in a pan and brown the beef cubes, rotating them in order brown each side. This will sear flavor into the meat. When the beef is done cooking, toss the pieces into the crock pot.
  4. Pour in the wine and broth into the crockpot and stir to combine.
  5. Add the chopped veggies and the garlic into the crockpot.
  6. Add the balsamic vinegar, herbs and ground pepper to the crockpot.
  7. Place the lid on your crock pot and cook for 4-5 hours on high or 7-8 hours on low.

One last thing: Sometimes with soups and stews, you sort of have to let it cook for a bit and then taste-test. Some people might like their stew a little spicier {if so add a pinch of cayenne or paprika). Moviestar likes a lot of distinct flavors and therefore adds seasoned salt to everything because it really adds to and enhances flavors. I also love black pepper, so I add more of it to everything. Maybe you want more garlic? It all depends on your personal taste. My only tip {because I’ve learned the hard way many times} is to add small increments of your extra seasoning to the stew at one time. Don’t load it down with garlic salt or you might regret it.  But outside of that, enjoy this lovely Fall favorite !
