Beef and potato stew is a go-to comfort dish. It's hearty and warm, and is perfect for dinner or lunch any time of year. When this stew is made in the slow cooker, as in the recipe that follows, it makes for a classic dish that doesn't even take a whole lot of effort. Just toss everything in and the stew will thicken as it cooks to perfection.
This stew is kept pretty simple. All it requires is beef, a handful of vegetables, and some aromatics and seasonings that come through in every bite. It can be eaten on its own, or served with crusty bread that's perfect for dipping into that thick and luscious gravy.
