Ingredients

  • 1
    lb boneless beef chuck
  • 1/2
    teaspoon salt
  • 1/4
    teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2
    teaspoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 3
    cups 1-inch pieces peeled sweet potatoes
  • 2
    teaspoons finely chopped garlic
  • 2
    whole cloves
  • 1
    dried bay leaf

    can (28 oz) Muir Glen™ organic whole peeled tomatoes with basil, undrained
  • 8
    dried apricots, cut in half
  • Chopped fresh parsley, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Remove excess fat from beef. Cut beef into 1-inch pieces. Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper. In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook beef in oil about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown.
  • 2
    In 4- to 5-quart slow cooker, mix beef and remaining ingredients except apricots and parsley. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6 to 8 hours or until beef is tender.
  • 3
    Stir in apricots. Cover; cook on Low heat setting about 15 minutes or until apricots are softened. Discard cloves, bay leaf and cinnamon stick. Sprinkle stew with parsley.

  • Purchase already cut-up beef stew meat instead of the boneless beef chuck.
