Gluten Free Beef Stew Slow Cooker Recipe

by Jun 5, 2018

This beef stew is a foolproof crowd-pleaser that makes a nice big batch great for meal prep, freezing for later, or serving a large group. It’s a perfect blend of savory umami with a hint of sweetness from the tomatoes. This stew feels a little bit lighter so you won’t get up from the table feeling as heavy as a sack of potatoes like you can with some other stews.

Cooking tips:

  • Add hot sauce if you want a little kick.
  • Add dried 2 bay leaves if you want a little extra flavor depth to the stew.
