Hey guys, how are you doing?
Apparently, spring doesn't want to come here. It's still cold, rainy and gray in here. :( On these cold days we like to eat hot soups and stews. Last week this was no different: we were craving for a large bowl of hearty stew, when I made this delicious beef stew with a lot of root vegetables.

This filling, nutritious low carb comfort food is the best beef stew made in a slow cooker. After just 30 minutes of preparation and making the stew-base, let your slow cooker to do the rest to get this rich and flavorful meal. The beef chunks and vegetables will simmer into a delicious thick stew, that doesn't need to be thickened with flour. This simple comfort food is healthy as well: the stew is all made from fresh healthy vegetables, herbs and beef, nothing artificial, preservatives, flour, sugar, just clean natural ingredients.
