So our lovely Arkansas Weather has decided to through us a curve ball and revert to winter in May. Since it's freezing outside I had to decide what warm meal to make for supper. I decided on stew. I used to hate making stew because it was so labor intensive. However, I have found a way to make stew that is virtually effortless.
14 oz. can of diced tomatoes (undrained)
2 c. water
4 medium sized red potatoes
1 lb. bag baby carrots
1 onion (optional)
Wash and dice potatoes. Place in bottom of crock pot. Coat stew meat in flour. Place on top of potatoes. Cover in carrots. Add onions if desired. Pour tomatoes over all and add 2 c. water. Cover and cook on low 7-8 hours or until meat and potatoes are tender.
This is a fantastic meal for cold days. Enjoy :)
