Wild Mushroom Beef Stew



  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 4 shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 medium carrots, sliced
  • 2 medium potatoes, diced
  • 1 small white onion, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, sliced
  1. Put the beef in the 4 1/2-quart CROCK-POT® slow cooker. Mix together the flour, salt and pepper and sprinkle over the meat; stir to coat each piece of meat with flour. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to mix well.
  2. Cover; cook on LOW 10 to 12 hours or on HIGH for 4 to 6 hours. Stir the stew before serving.


  • You may double the amount of meat, mushrooms, carrots, potatoes, onion and celery for the 5, 6 or 7-quart CROCK-POT® slow cooker.
  • This classic beef stew is given a twist with the addition of flavorful shiitake mushrooms. If shiitake mushrooms are unavailable in your local grocery store, you can substitute other mushrooms of your choice. For extra punch, add a few dried porcini mushrooms to the stew.
