Sassy Slow Cooker Beef Stew

The days are getting shorter, and even here in North Carolina, the  weather is getting a bit chilly.

These are the perfect days for a nice hearty dinner done in the crock pot.

This stew is not only easy to make but it will keep your family, yes even the kids, coming back for more. This beef stew recipe absolutely has a kick and more vegetables than your kids will ever guess. This is awesome with a hearty crusty bread.

Just a note about the V8 Juice. I use the Hot and Spicy which is what makes this “Sassy”. If you don’t like as much spice, feel free to use one can regular V8 or just swap out both cans for the regular.

I hope you and your family will enjoy this as much as mine does.

Please be sure to share your stories and comments with us.

Make it a great day!!!
