I just love this recipe. The flavors of the beef stew are so rich, and are complemented perfectly by the fluffy dumplings seasoned with thyme. For this easy meal, you do have to make dumplings and add them to the slow cooker in the last half hour of cooking, but that can be a fun chore to do with your kids. Just add a salad and a super-easy dessert that takes about 3 minutes to prepare, and you can sit down to a healthy, filling, comforting meal. Enjoy.
Beef Stew Crockpot Dinner Menu
- Beef Stew with Dumplings
This rich stew simmers for 8-10 hours, so start it in the morning, then finish the dumplings in the last 30 minutes.
- Avocado Green Salad
Avocados and Parmesan cheese are the perfect additions to a simple green salad recipe.
- Apricot Fool
Use any flavor of pie filling in this super easy dessert recipe. If you prefer a bit more crunch, use granola to sprinkle on these parfaits rather than toasted coconut.
