I have made this a couple of times now and we LOVE it! It is best served over mashed potatoes. I know most stews have potatoes in them but I like them over or topped with mashed potatoes best of all!
This stew is tasty, quick and easy and cooks in the crock pot while you’re busy doing other things that you want and need to do. What could be better?
2 pounds beef stew meat
1 pound mushrooms, quartered
1 stick butter
2 Tablespoons dried parsley
1 teaspoon each of dill, garlic powder and dried onion flakes
1/2 teaspoon each of basil and ground black pepper
Combine everything in the crock pot and cook on high 4 hours or on low 6-8 hours or until beef is tender. Mix 2 Tablespoons cornstarch and 2 Tablespoons cold water until smooth. Stir into simmering stew until thick and well combined.
Serve over mashed potatoes.
