Well, nothing goes better with watching zombies/people get their heads bashed in than beef stew! The stew kinda looked like a mixture of brainmeatcarnage…
Haven’t gotten to the posts for a bit & that is not good for me or you all.
This is way simple & only takes a handful of ingredients – I thought this crock wouldn’t be that great cause there were so few items, but once again the crock did not disappoint.
- 1 lb stew meat (bottom round)
- 3 cups beef broth
- 3 cloves garlic diced
- 1/2 onion diced
- 1 can drained diced tomatoes
- 1 can diced green chiles
- 2 potatoes (1 in cubed)
- 1/2 tblsp oregano
- 1/2 tblsp red pepper flakes
- 2 bay leaves
- 1 cinnamon stick
Throw it all in & set on low for 8hrs. Remove the bay leaves & cinnamon stick before serving.
Was surprised by how much the red pepper flakes made this spicy, but the cinnamon stick mellowed it out. Made this w/o flour (a lot of the recipes call for adding flour, but wanted to see how this turned out sans the thick flour stuff).
Served this fantastic stew w/ a nice crusty sourdough baguette & that proved to be a huge plus for dipping. Who the hell doesn’t like dipping something in something.
