Easy and Hearty Slow Cooker Beef Stew

I love the simplicity of the taste of this beef stew. It is just pure meaty plus the sweet flavor of the potatoes and carrots. This is the perfect example of comfort food! Imagine going home from a very stressful day at work, don’t you want to just remove your shoes and eat something delicious? Yeah, I know! So, if you have a husband or even a kid that you will come home from a tiring day, what better way to relieve their stress and tiredness than to prepare this amazing dish. Serve it over steamed or fried rice. Oh man, it is so perfect with rice! The sauce alone poured on top of the rice is perfect. Are you hungry yet? Well, I have listed all the ingredients and steps so I guess you just have to give it a try so you would know how delicious it truly is. By the way, you might want to prepare and cook this 6 or 8 hours before dinner because it takes time. Great things are worth the wait, always!
