  • 1

    Spray 4- to 5-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.

  • 2

    In small cup, place 1/4 cup of the broth; dissolve flour in broth. Add all ingredients to slow cooker except rice.

Expert Tips

  • Serve with lime wedges.
  • Ask your butcher for an affordable beef stew meat. Slow cooker infuses flavor while cooking any meat cut deliciously.
  • If using fresh marjoram or thyme leaves, 1/2 teaspoon dried leaves equals 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh leaves.
  • If using a round 4 1/2-quart slow cooker, it might take 1 hour longer. The 5-quart oval will take the same time as step 3.
