Beef Stew

2 lb (1 kg) stewing beef cubes
4 potatoes, peeled and cut_in wedges
3 carrots, cut_in chunks
2 onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1-1/2 cups (375 mL) beef stock

Thank you or sharing all of that. I'm definitely doing that this weekend. I've got homemade chili socked away, but that's it so far.

oh boy! Thank you for sharing I am definately going to have to steal some of these they actually sound really yummy!! I might have to leave out the red pepper and the green pepper from two of them though as i dont like them haha! Will that change the way the recipe turns out, at all?

EDIT: Oh how big is your family? Just wondering so I can adjust amounts accordingly

There are only 3 of us so these will all make LOTS of left overs. We like left overs though as we use them for work lunches.

I havent actually tired any of these. I spent sunday morning looking for new recipes and these seemed to be the tasteiest ones I found.

I did change the teriyaki one to only have half the soy sauce. I was scared it was going to be too salty.

Silly question, but how long do you cook these? Everything we have made so far is already cooked and frozen, so I hadn't thought to prepare without cooking.

Sorry I didnt include the cooking times.

they were all cook on low for 6-7 hours or high for 4-5.
Chicken & pork I find need less time or it ends up being shredded at the end. I dont think id cook either more than 5-6 hours. I am still trying to master cook times with chicken and pork so that it comes out nicely. I think it really depends on your cooker. I just got a new one so we shall see.

the hamburger/sloppy joes is apparently a fast cooking recipe so I would becareful with that one.
