Easy Slow Cooker Beef Stew

I’m all about easy. No one wants to be a slave to their kitchen. As much as I love to cook, I don’t like hanging out in there all day.  Insert the greatest invention of all time – the slow cooker!

Now that the weather is cooling off, I usually crave rich stews and soups. There’s nothing better than coming home to your house smelling like a fabulous beef stew.  Keeping with my low-carb, keto lifestyle, I swapped out the starchy, sugary vegetables like potatoes for green beans, leeks and green peppers; but feel free to substitute with your favourite veggies.  This stew is so versatile!Easy Slow Cooker Beef Stew ~ www.thehappyhealthfreak.com ~ #lowcarb #keto

      That’s great! Most of my soup/stew recipes yield about 1 to 1 1/2 cups. It all depends on how much liquid come from the veggies from cooking etc. Feel free to adjust it as you please šŸ˜‰
