  1. Place the flour in a shallow bowl, and mix with salt and black pepper. Sprinkle beef with more salt and black pepper. Press the beef cubes into the seasoned flour, and tap off the excess flour.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook the beef cubes until browned on all sides, working in batches. Place the browned beef into a slow cooker. Place the mushrooms, onion, and carrot in the skillet with the last batch of meat; place in the slow cooker. Pour about 1 cup of beef broth into the skillet, and stir to dissolve any brown bits left in the bottom of the skillet. Pour into the slow cooker.
  3. In a saucepan over medium heat, whisk the remaining beef broth with the dry gravy mix until smooth. Bring the gravy to a boil, reduce heat to medium low, and simmer until thickened, about 2 minutes. Stir the gravy into the stew. Mix in the potato, frozen peas, corn, lima beans, and green beans. If you prefer a thicker gravy, mix in the cream of mushroom soup.
  4. Place the lid on the cooker, set to low heat, and cook until the beef is very tender, about 4 hours. You can cook the stew up to 8 hours if necessary.

I made this for my husband and myself a couple of weeks ago. I took a photo and uploaded it but forgot to post a review. I used a frozen bag of mixed vegetables, added some minced fresh garlic, and used the optional cream of mushroom soup. I thought it was good but just felt like it was lacking something. My husband didn't like it at all. He said it was very bland. I think it was because of the brown gravy mix. Next time I'll try it with beefy onion soup mix and water instead of the beef broth and gravy mix. I'll also thaw the frozen vegetables and add them at the end so they don't get mushy and washed out looking.

Followed the recipe. Stew was boring. No flavor. Didn't even create a nice aroma when cooking. Used premium ingredients. Yuck! Good for hog slops.

This is a great recipe. I added more onions (but I *always* add more onions!) and I also didn't throw my frozen veggies in until the very end. The beef was so very tender. This recipe is very easy to personalize to your family's tastes. I prefer it with an onion gravy mix as well. Give it a try! :D

Really good stew! I modified it a bit by only adding potatoes, mushrooms, onion, and carrots. Also freezes well.

I made this on a cold winter afternoon because we had thawed steak in the fridge. I used steak because it was thawed and waiting to be cooked. The meat was so tender I could chew it, just days after i had atooth extracted! The veggies were firm, but not too crunchy. Didn't have gravy mix, used onion soup mix instead. Corn and peas are a nice surprise for a stew.

Add some garlic and 1 pk of gravy instead of two and it was great!
