What you will need:
1 Package Beef Cubes
5-6 Potatoes
2 Cans Corn
2 Cans Green Beans
1 Can Butter Beans or Lima Beans
1 1/2 Can Beef Broth
1 Small 1/2 – 1/4 Sweet Onion or 1 tsp Onion Salt
1 tsp Garlic Powder
Flour
Vegetable Oil
Salt and Pepper

How To:
Start by browning all sides of beef cubes.
Pour a bit of vegetable oil in skillet just to coat the bottom and turn on low-med.
Add about 1 cup of flour to plate sprinkle just a bit of salt and pepper over flour and mix well with a fork.
Flour all sides of beef cubes.

Add floured beef cubes to hot skillet and brown all sides. Do not cook through just brown each side.

Once all sides are brown place cubes on a paper towel to remove some of the oil.

While you are browning all sides of the beef cubes, start the following:
Open all vegetable cans and drain liquid.
Peel potatoes and dice into large chunks.
Dice onion if you are using one.
Add all of the above to Crock Pot.
Sprinkle in Garlic and Onion Salt if using these spices.
Sprinkle in Pepper and Salt to taste.
Pour 1 1/2 can of beef broth over all.
Turn Crock Pot on High.

After all beef cubes are browned and placed on paper towel add them to the crock pot.
I sprinkle about 1 TBL spoon of flour over everything in crock pot and stir to combine not allowing the flour to clump. Repeat this step one more time. Adding flour now will thicken the beef broth as it cooks. To make a “beef stew” thickness when done.
Serve in a bowl with a hot roll on the side! So good! ❤
