Slow-Cooker Beef Stew with Rice
- Prep 15min
cups Progresso™ beef broth (from 32-oz carton)
tablespoon all-purpose flour
cups (8 oz bag) ready-to-eat baby-cut carrots
medium red potatoes (1 lb), washed and cut in 1-inch cubes
can (14.5 oz) tomatoes, undrained
teaspoon dried thyme leaves
teaspoon dried marjoram leaves
Spray 4- to 5-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
In small cup, place 1/4 cup of the broth; dissolve flour in broth. Add all ingredients to slow cooker except rice.
Cover; cook 3 1/2 to 4 hours on High heat setting. Remove bay leaves.
- 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.
