Slow Cooker Beef Stew

Slow Cooker Beef Stew from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

It’s pretty cold in most of the country, and that means we’re dealing with the dreaded winter blues that only a bowl of hot comfort food can cure. Our favorite go-to meal this time of year is a classic beef stew made with hearty beef, mushrooms, carrots, onions and red wine – and you can’t make this delicious dinner any easier than with the convenience of a slow cooker.

    Is there a substitute to use instead of the onion soup mix? Other than that I like the recipe a lot.

      I just use dried onion. I also have a recipe to make a copycat onion soup mix. I don’t use the beef bouillon called for in the recipe. I buy a low-sodium vegetable broth powder & use that. Also this broth powder is MSG-free.
