As soon as the weather begins to cool off a bit, I get out my crock pot and cook up a big pot of my Slow Cooker Sirloin Beef Stew. My family and I love it, as it is a delicious, hearty meal in one bowl. I love making beef stew on a lazy Sunday afternoon and letting it simmer for hours. It fills my house with the warm aromas of autumn, and fills our bellies with a hearty, delicious meal.
How the recipe comes together
This recipe couldn’t be more simple to throw together, making it fantastic for busy weeknights when you want to come home to dinner that is done. Along with the vegetables, I used sirloin that came from Butcher Box. Butcher Box is grass-fed beef, organic chicken, & heritage breed pork delivered monthly, directly to your door. All of their products are free of antibiotics, GMO’s and hormones, so you know the meat is top-quality!
I received an all-beef shipment, but you can select any combination of meat that you would prefer. The meat we received from Butcher Box was top-notch! The beef was, lean and of very high quality! It comes frozen in a cooler that is shipped directly to your door.
I also love the fact that the meat is individually wrapped and sealed for ideal portion control. Thawing the meat is simple – I either add the wrapped and sealed meat to cool water in the sink, or thaw in the fridge if I have extra time.
Once the meat was thawed, I then browned the meat, and added all of the ingredients for the stew right into the slow cooker. This dinner doesn’t get much more simple, as once all of the ingredients are added, you’ll simply add the lid and let the slow cooker do the rest.
