This hearty slow cooker beef stew is packed with seasoned well with all the potatoes, chuck roast, onions, carrots and celery.  Just 4 to 6 hours in the slow cooker on high to get the full flavor.



  • 2 lbs chuck roast, cubed
  • 1/2 Cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 Cups water
  • 2 teaspoons beef better than bouillon
  • 1/2 teaspoon minces garlic
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 carrots, sliced
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 stalk of celery, sliced
  • 3 medium potatoes, diced


  1.  In a bowl, mix together the flour, salt, pepper and paprika.
  2. Add the cubed chuck roast to the slow cooker.  Mix in the flour mixture to fully coat the stew meat.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  4. Cook on low for 10-12 hours or high for 4 to 6 hours.


If you don’t have Hungarian paprika, you can substitute regular.  I highly recommend purchasing Hungarian paprika when you can.  The added flavor is amazing!
