Azorean Beef Stew

17

I have a sentimental attachment to beef stew. My mom used to make a steak soup (a favorite of my dad's) when I was a kid, my father-in-law makes the most delicious beef stew and when I got married I spent many winter Sunday afternoons and evenings making beef stew. Nostalgia at it's finest! Last winter I found this recipe for Azorean beef stew on a blog I follow and I knew I needed to try a new twist on a classic!

8
2 lb. cubed beef stew meat
1 lb. baby carrots
1 1/2 lb. yukon gold potatoes, cut into bite sized pieces
4 green onions, sliced
10 cloves garlic, minced
1 (28 oz.) can stewed tomatoes
3 T. salt (I know it sounds like a lot but this is a lot of stew!)
1 t. crushed red pepper
2 t. cumin
2 bay leaves
2 cinnamon sticks
1 t. allspice
6 c. low sodium beef broth
Place all ingredients in a 6 qt. slow cooker and stir to combine. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-6 hours.
