Here's a good old-fashioned stew with rich beef gravy that lets the flavor of the potatoes and carrots come through. This is the perfect hearty dish for a blustery winter day. I make it often this time of year.

"This is such an easy way to make a wonderful beef stew," beams Doris Sleeth of Naples, Florida. "You don't need to brown the meat first—just combine it with hearty chunks of carrots, potatoes and celery...and let it all cook together in a flavorful gravy. My daughter Karen came up with the recipe for her busy family."
Come home to warm comfort food! This beef stew is based on my mom’s wonderful recipe, but I adjusted it for the slow cooker. Add a sprinkle of Parmesan to each bowl for a nice finishing touch. —Marcella West, Washburn, Illinois
"This is one of the tastiest stews I have ever made," notes Dixie Terry of Goreville, Illinois. "It's hearty and especially good for folks on restricted diets because most of its flavor comes from herbs and spices.
This stew looks as terrific as it tastes! Flavored with a variety of herbs and chockfull of vegetables, this recipe lists salt as an option, making it ideal for family members and friends who must restrict sodium.
