Slow Cooker Beef Stew


  • 1 1/2 pounds of beef stew meat, cut 1-inch pieces
  • 4 small potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 1/2 cups lower-sodium beef broth
  • 1 cup crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp light butter
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp granulated stevia
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp ground black pepper


Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onions and garlic and sauté until soft. Add beef and cook until browned.

Spray slow cooker (I used a 6-quart) with non-stick cooking spray. Add beef mixture and ALL remaining ingredients. Give it a good stir to mix well.

Cover with lid and cook on low heat setting for 8 to 10 hours, or high heat setting for 5 to 6 hours. That’s it! Just serve… and enjoy!
