Snow & Pot Roast Stew

Happy Martin Luther King Day!
It also happens to be a snow day here in my neck of the woods. 
I spent my morning cleaning and organizing our two spare room closets, making a delicious smelling Pot Roast Stew in the crock pot, finished the laundry, washed all the dishes and now waiting for Jay to get home so we can go and pick up Josie. Oh and maybe hitting a goodwill up. 

Here is a shot of all the ingredients I used for the stew.  See below for recipe.  

Pot Roast Stew

Cooking Spray
1 1/2 pounds boneless chuck roast, 
trimmed and cut into 1 in. cubes
1 1/2 c. water
1 can beef broth
2 1/2 c. cubed peeled red potato
1 3/4 c. sliced peeled carrot
1 tbl. Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. salt and pepper each
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 large onion, cut into 1 in. pieces
1/4 c. flour
1/4 c. water
1 tbl. thyme

1. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Place over high heat until hot, add beef.  Cook 5 minutes or until browned. 

2. Place beef in crock pot.  Add water and broth.  Add potato and next 7 ingredients, stir well. Cover with lid, cook on high 6 - 8 hours. 

3. Now add the 1/4 c. flour and 1/4 c. water to a bowl, stir with whisk until blended. Add flour mixture and thyme, stir well.  Cover and cook oh high for the final 20 minutes. 

Makes approx. 6 servings. 

*Update* This was very good.  We will 
definately be making this again.
