"This was the beef stew I grew up on. It's a great low-maintenance and delicious winter favorite! It makes excellent leftovers or next day's lunch, if it doesn't disappear before then! I have included a paleo diet alteration for this recipe in the footnotes."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Place beef stew meat and butter into the bottom of a slow cooker. Put onion, baby carrots, potatoes, and bay leaves atop the beef.
  2. Stir tomato soup, water, steak sauce, and onion soup mix together in bowl; pour over the beef and vegetables in the slow cooker. Sprinkle lemon pepper seasoning over the mixture.
  3. Cook on Low 8 to 10 hours.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • For my paleo-diet version, I use zucchini, squash, or cauliflower instead of potatoes. Strict paleo dieters or those avoiding sodium may choose to omit the onion soup mix or use only half of the packet.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.
