Slow Cooker Beef Stew

                          This is the time of year when you crave comfort food. I love easy and
                          flavorful slow cooker meals. The meat is so flavorful and very tender.
                            Give it a try and this just might be your go to beef stew recipe.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew

1 large red onion, sliced
2 to 3 pounds stew meat
1/3 cup all purpose flour
salt and pepper to taste
1  ( 1.2 ounce )package dry beef gravy mix
1 ( 1 ounce ) package dry ranch dressing mix
1 ( .7 ounce ) package Italian style dressing mix
1 cup water
6 or 7 peeled carrots, diced

1) Spread onion slices at the bottom of your crock pot. Sprinkle salt
and pepper on the meat and dredge the meat in flour. Make sure to 
coat all sides. Place the meat on top of the onions. In a mixing cup 
add your water, gravy, ranch and Italian seasonings and mix well,
Pour over meat and all your carrots on top.

2) Cover and set on low for 8 hours. Mixing every once in a while.

Note - I don't add potatoes to the stew because I like to serve it over
a bed of rice or mashed potatoes. But, feel free to add potatoes if you'd like.
The Meat literally falls apart.
