Slow Cooker BBQ Beef Stew

*Got the inspiration from

2 lbs beef stew meat
5 red potatoes (washed and cut into chunks)
3 carrots (peeled and cut into chunks)
1 medium onion (cut into chunks)
3/4 cups BBQ sauce
1 tbs peanut butter

1)layer potatoes on the bottom of slow cooker.
2)layer in carrots.
3)layer in onions.
4)brown stew meat on a skillet (to seal and capture the flavor)
5)layer meat on top of onions.
6)throw peanut butter.
7)top with BBQ sauce.
8)turn slow cooker on high for 4.5 hours.
9)Open lid after 4.5 hours and stir well, cover and let cook for another half hour.
10)Serve with rice.

*Kraftsrecipes suggest to use 1 tbs instant coffee powder. I didn't have any, so I substitue with peanut butter, just to see if that will have a different flavor.


  1. I love my slow cooker! I have a bunch of healthy slow cooker recipes that I post on my blog if you're interested. (

  2. Did kraft's recipe really say COFFEE powder?

  3. yes it did. it supposed to bring out the i guess I'll try that next time!
