Directions

1. To make the slow cooker beef stew: Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Salt and pepper the beef and dust with flour. Add beef to the skillet and sear on each side for 2-3 minutes. Set beef aside.

2. Add a bit of red wine to the skillet and scrape down the brown bits on the side. Allow it to simmer and reduce and slowly add beef broth and tomato paste. Whisk well and add the sauce to the slow cooker.

3. Add beef, potatoes, carrots, butternut squash, onion, and garlic to the slow cooker. Season with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and add the bay leaf. Add red wine, give a good stir, cover and cook on low until beef is fork-tender for 8-10 hours or high for 6-8 hours. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve the slow cooker beef stew immediately. Enjoy!

Tips for the slow cooker beef stew recipe

Our most favorite beef stew is made easily in the crockpot! The meat is super tender and the stew is rich, chunky, and hearty! Impress your friends and family with this beautiful-looking and tasting beef stew recipe. Here are a few tips to make it even better:

  • You don’t need to brown the meat if you’re pressed for time. We do recommend it for added flavor – it is worth it!
  • The onions and garlic can also be sautéed on the side before adding them to the slow cooker.
  • Red wine gives the crockpot beef stew a greater depth of flavor. However, you can omit it if you prefer. Some readers told us they like to add a couple tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce, give it a try!
  • Feel free to add more veggies such as celery, salsify, or even mushrooms.
  • Bacon could make a nice addition too – make sure to get rid of bacon fat beforehand.
  • If you don’t have garlic at hand, use a teaspoon or two of garlic powder instead.

What to serve with the slow cooker beef stew?

Potatoes, butternut squash, and carrots cooked with the meat are usually enough to make the slow-cooked beef a substantial meal, but you can serve it on top of white or brown rice or pasta. A slice of baguette or country bread on the side is a must!

How and how long to keep the crockpot beef stew leftovers?

Keep the slow cooker beef stew leftovers for 4 days in an airtight container. Reheat the meat, veggies, and sauce on low in a slow cooker or dutch oven, adding a little water to loosen the sauce if necessary. The slow cooker beef stew freezes very well so you can make plenty for those quick-fix weeknight feasts. Keep the beef stew in the freezer for 3 months maximum.
