Slow Cooker English Beef Stew (Gluten & Dairy Free)

I have wanted to make beef stew for a while now, but I am always hesitant to start since the cooking time is practically all day. Plus, there are so many different ways to make it. It gets a little intimidating!

Well, this weekend I decided to give my own twist a try and thank goodness I did. It was so simple to make and tasted delicious. Beef stew is really the perfect meal for a rainy day, so put a fire on, grab your cozy socks, and get cookin'.

Slow Cooker English Beef Stew (Gluten Free + Dairy Free)
serves 4


2 lbs stewing beef, cubed
1/4 cup gluten free all purpose flour
1 teaspoon + 1/2 tsp if needed sea salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cups organic beef stock
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon thyme
1 tablespoon + 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 bay leaf
5 garlic cloves, crushed
1 onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, sliced
4 carrots, sliced
6 small (ish) red potatoes, cubed


Dice and prep all stew veggies.

In the crock-pot, mix flour, salt and pepper.

Add in beef and coat with flour mix.

Add in all other ingredients and give it a few good stirs.

Cook 4-5 hours on high or 10-12 hours on low.

Close to when it should be finished, give it a taste and see if it needs a bit more salt! Also, if you prefer more broth in your stew, add an additional 1/2 cup of beef broth.
