Cool, windy. foggy, misty... Beef Stew!

It's rather cool this morning in Southeast Georgia... a bit windy and foggy... and a fine mist is in the air. Time for crockpot beef stew, ya'll!

INGREDIENTS:

2 lbs beef, cut into bite-size chunks
one yellow onion, peeled & coarsely chopped
fresh baby carrots (1 package)
Yukon Gold or small red potatoes, washed, quartered
1 can beef consomme
1 can beef broth
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 stick REAL butter
Seasonings to taste

DIRECTIONS:

In a skillet on the stove top, place butter and chopped onion. Stir onions and allow them to cook on medium heat until a golden brown. Remove and place in crockpot.
Add beef chunks to skillet and brown on all sides for just a few minutes. Add salt and pepper now for more flavour.
Place beef chunks, consomme, broth, and garlic in crockpot with the cooked onions. Cook on high for about 3 hours.
Add potato quarters and baby carrots and turn to crockpot's LOW setting and allow to finish cooking (about 3 hours.)

If you are leaving for a few hours or just want to let it cook it all day, add ALL ingredients at the same time and allow to cook on low for about 8 to 10 hours.

Serve over rice.

This is a very hearty stew and really warms you up after a long day!
