Slow Cooker Beef Stew

Made, Written & Photographed by the Creators of the Point

My all time favorite cold weather meal is beef stew. It is so comforting and easy to make – not to mention it makes the house smell SO GOOD.

It doesn't cost too much to gather ingredients, but make sure to get a beef chuck roast and not stew meat. The roast will shred and become super tender and the stew meat remains a little chewy.
