Vegetable Beef Stew In A Slow Cooker

In an earlier post, I mentioned I have a slow cooker  (2 actually) and I LOVE them! I am going to try and post a few good recipes that I have that are fairly easy to make and only require the slow cooker (and sometimes a pan to sear meats). This Vegetable Beef Stew is basic but it packs a nice bite. It tastes really good, it fills you up and it’s great for cold winter days.


1lb Stew Meat

1 (14oz) can Beef Broth

1 (28oz) can Stewed Tomatoes (regular – no added spices)

2 (15oz) cans of mixed vegetables (keep the liquid)

1/2 cup Barley

Optional – 2 cans Sliced Potatoes (drained)


Throw all ingredients into the slow cooker (except potatoes if you’re using them – if so, put them in during the last 1/2 hour or so to get them heated up), turn it on low for 7-9 hours. You can sear the meat first before putting into the slow cooker but it will cook while in the slow cooker too.

Yes, like I said, this Vegetable Beef Stew is very basic but it does it’s job! You can add carrots as well to make it even more filling
