Day 10 of the Slow Cooker Challenger…
At one point, beef stew meant multiple pots and a good chunk of the day hanging in the kitchen. Crockpots have made it easier to make this dish. And you can have some variety here too — add other vegetables like carrots or potatoes if you want!
It’s how we stew in the South…
