Recipe: Paprika Beef Stew (Slow Cooker)

Fall is in the air and everyone is looking for some good slow cooker recipes.  This is a busy time of year with school in session, fall sports, and after school activities.  Coming home to a healthy warm meal, all ready and waiting, is a treat for the whole family.

While we don't eat red meat that often now, this stew is a nice treat and lamb stew meat would be a tastey substitution for beef.  The sauce is a blend of tomatoe, paprika, and caraway seeds which gives it robust flavouring with a hint of sweetness. 

from Better Homes and Gardens The Ultimate Slow Cooker Book

2 pounds bonless beef chuck pot roast (I used stew beef)
1 1/2 cups chopped onions (3 medium)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium beef broth
1 1/2 cups of water
1 6-ounce can tomatoe paste
1 Tablespoon paprika
1 Tablespoon caraway seeds
2 teaspoons dried marjoram, crushed
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cups coarsely chopped green and/or sweet peppers (about 2 large)
1/2 cup sour cream

Trim fat from meat.  Cut meat into 3/4-inch pieces.  In a 3 1/2 or 4 quart slow cooker combine meat, onions, garlic, broth, the water, tomatoe paste, paprika, carawy seeds, marjoram, and black pepper.

Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 9 hours or high-heat setting for 4 to 4-1/2 hours.  Stir in sweet peppers for the last 45 minutes of cooking.  Top each serving with sour cream.  (I served mine on top of whole wheat egg noodles).
