Few things are as satisfying as a hearty beef stew. But this easy recipe will surprise you. It's all the things you love about beef stew, but with a surprising — and delicious— twist. Instead of the usual cubes of potatoes cooked in the stew, this one has potato gnocchi cooked into it. The gnocchi become tender and, best of all, they really soak up all the rich, savory flavors of the stew.
Use a shelf-stable package of gnocchi in this recipe. The packaging allows you to store it in your pantry at all times, which means that this stew is easy to toss together whenever you need a low-fuss, slow-cooker meal. This is going to be your go-to meal as soon as the weather turns chilly.
