Stew - Beef Stew in the crockpot or slow cooker

Winter often means comfort food. Comfort food doesn't have to mean gobs of cheese, sugar and butter. Crockpot stew is a great option.

Ingredients:
One onion, diced
Salt/pepper to taste
1 bay leaf
Crushed garlic, to taste
4 red potatoes (depending on size/preference of course), sliced or quartered
Carrots, diced or baby carrots (around 1/2 cup per person works nicely)
Water
Vegetable or other bullion Vegetable broth
(watch for added ingredients, you can also use a trusted vegetable stock)
Sliced Celeriac (you can use celery as well)
Bottle gourd sliced
Beef, I used an organic that was close to the sell by date since I knew it was being used that day, diced into 1/2 inch slices

Add in the beef, to your slow cooker, place on low.
Season with salt and pepper and the crushed garlic
Add in your vegetables.
Cover with water and bullion or Vegetable broth


Add in bay leaf
Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours or on low for 9-10 hours

Enjoy with your family... Outdoors if the weather is right :)
