Momma's stew

I need to apologize for the lack of posts recently.  We are doing a massive Reno at our house and are living with my parents for 2 months it's a gong show!

This is such a delicious stew that is super easy to make at anytime.  I utilized the crockpot while my baby had his morning nap.

8 small potatoes
2 lg hand fills baby carrots or 4 carrots peeled and cut up
1 lb stew meat
2 tbsp beef boyan
2 tbsp flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 cup water

Shake together last 7 ingredients and pour in crockpot.  Cut up meat and potatoes in cubes and toss in crockpot.  Toss in carrots.  Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.  I serve this with baking powder biscuits also found on my blog.  Enjoy!
