Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Serve food directly from the lined slow cooker. Once your slow cooker cools, remove the liner and throw away for easy clean up.
  • Substitute mushroom beef gravy mix or brown beef gravy mix for the onion gravy mix, if desired.
  • Serve this saucy beef stew over mashed potatoes with plenty of crusty bread for mopping up the extra sauce.
