Crock Pot Beef and Mushroom Stew

OK this baby is cooking longer than I thought she would be. I am due in 7 days, and I'm still cooking. I felt like beef stew tonight, not sure why. I just threw a bunch of things together and it's pretty darn good!!

  • 1-2 lbs beef pieces, I used stir fry strips

  • 2 Tablespoons chopped garlic

  • 1/4 cup flour

  • 1 14 ounce can beef broth

  • 6 ounces tomato paste

  • 1 can diced Italian style tomatoes, undrained

  • 16 ounces assorted and chopped mushrooms

  • 1 can whole white potatoes, drained

  • 2 cans sliced carrots, drained

  • 1 box frozen green beans

  • 5-6 springs fresh thyme

  • 1 cup water

  • salt and pepper to taste

Salt and pepper beef. In a skillet on medium high heat brown beef. Towards the end of the browning, add in chopped garlic and the flour. Turn off heat and mix together. Put in crock pot. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Cover and cook on high for 4-6 hours, or low for 6-8 hours. I served this over wheat egg noodles.
