The result: Delicious.
I really can't take much credit for the recipe. I actually can't take any credit at all. It goes to McCormick Seasoning, if we're being perfectly honest. I bought a packet of Slow Cooker Beef Stew Seasoning, and essentially followed the directions on the pack.
- 2 lbs beef, cubed (I actually bought "stewing beef" at the market - it was delicious. They had it already cubed up, but I cut the pieces even smaller)
- 5 cups chopped vegetables (carrot, celery, onion, potato) (I think that I actually had about 6 cups)
- 1 1/2 cups water, mixed with the seasoning (I used 2 cups water)
The directions say about 4 hours on high, 8 hours on low. I cooked it for about 2 hours on high and 4 hours on low for a total of 6 hours.
For about 6 servings, I calculated about 10 points plus. For 4 servings, 16 points plus.
It also reheated really well. I added a bit of water, put it on the stove and it was delicious!
