I love using my crock pot. It’s been used many, many times over the years and has produced some delicious dinners. This is one of those meals my family has really enjoyed. So tasty! This does have a little kick to it. The Rotel gives it that spicy flavor. If you don’t like spicy, just substitute in some diced tomatoes in its place.
This stew is very easy to make, and the crock pot does all the work for you! Just brown your meat, peel and cut up your veggies, add in some seasonings and some juices, and that’s it! Dinner will be ready in about 5-6 hours, so do whatever you do for fun, or get on Pinterest and find some more awesome recipes to pin, and give yourself the night off and relax, dinner is in the pot!
I used a 7 quart crock pot for this beef stew. With all the meat and veggies, I needed a larger pot for all of this deliciousness!

In a large dutch oven pan, heat olive oil over medium heat.

Add seasonings to meat.
Brown meat on all four sides.
Turn crock pot on high.
Peel carrots and potatoes, slice carrots and cube potatoes to desired size. Add to crock pot.
Slice celery, cut up onion and garlic, and add to crock pot.
After meat is browned, add to crock pot on top of the veggies.
Pour both cans of Rotel on top of meat.
Pour beef broth on top of meat.
Cover and cook until meat is tender and potatoes and carrots are done. In the last hour of cooking, add in corn, peas, and green beans and stir.
Right before stew is done, mix 1 tbsp of corn starch with 1 tbsp water in a small bowl and add it to the stew and stir. This will thicken it a bit.
Serve with some homemade biscuits, bread sticks, or corn bread muffins.
