Servings: 8 servings
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 1/2 pounds stew beef trimmed and cut into one inch pieces
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 medium onion chopped
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 4 cups beef broth
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 3 carrots peeled and chopped
- 3 potatoes peeled and chopped
- sour cream for serving
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Toss the beef with the flour, then add the flour to the skillet. Cook, stirring frequently, until the meat is mostly browned. Add the onion, garlic, and tomato paste, and cook for 5 minutes, or until the onions are tender. Pour the mixture into the crock pot. Add 1 cup of beef broth to the hot skillet, and stir to loosen the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Pour the broth into the crock pot.
Add the remaining broth to the crock pot, as well as the salt, pepper, carrots, and potatoes. Stir to combine.
Cook for 6 hours on low heat. Serve hot with a dollop of sour cream on top and fresh crusty bread on the side.
