Ingredients for Beef Stew:

   salt* and pepper to taste

This beef stew is made in a slow-cooker – how easy is that?

How to Make Delicious Savory Beef Stew:

1. Put the dehydrated items and seasonings in your crock-pot.
2. Prepare 3 cups beef stock in a large jug. Add the Worcestershire Sauce, ketchup, and optional tomato paste. Stir to dissolve the ketchup.
3. In a separate jug, measure 1/4 cup of cold water, add the flour, stir well then add this to the beef stock and Worcestershire Sauce and ketchup mix. Stir well.
4. Add the stock mix to the slow cooker (let it cool a bit so you don't shock your crock(pot)!
5. Add the stewing beef. Stir gently to mix all. Cover with crock-pot lid.
6. Turn on the slow cooker ... low heat, 4 - 6 hours.

*IF you need to add salt, do so, BUT be careful NOT to over-salt as the bouillon has salt in it.
