How to make it

  • This recipe is proportioned for a 6 quart crock pot.
  • Start with a roux, 1 cup butter, melted in a large saucepan, stir in 1 cup flour and stir like mad until it becomes an even paste with no lumps. Slowly stir in beef broth. (The chicken broth will be added to the crock pot later when you dump everything else in. Chicken broth generally has more flavor than beef broth so it's used to kick up the flavor a little bit.)
  • Add your spices and sauces, mix thoroughly and dump into the crock pot at low heat.
  • Prepare vegetables, I usually just dice everything bite size, and dump into crock pot.
  • Now, I started the recipe at noon and the potatoes were not as soft as they should have been by six on low heat, but if you start in the morning before work (or the night before), it will be ready for dinner that evening.

    Anytime I see a recipe that begins with a cup of butter, I know I'm gonna love it.

    Will give it a try. Thanks.

    This recipe is awesome! I fixed a 2/3rds recipe and used 1 lb beef cubes. Added about 1/4 tsp dried thyme and left out the green onions. Served it in a bowl, over hot wide noodles. Superb.
