Crock Pot Beef Stew {for One}

Cooking for one or two?  Just because you’re not feeding a small army doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy delicious Crock Pot recipes too. What I’ve done to help, is adjust several of my recipes that typically feed a family, to work for singles and couples.

Crock Pot Beef Stew is hearty and simple to make, plus you’ll have enough for 2 meals. Just remember to use a 2 quart Crock Pot instead of a larger one. Otherwise these cook times will have to be adjusted. Here’s what you need:


1/2 lb stew meat

1/2 c. baby carrots

2 celery stalks, sliced into 1″ pieces

2 baby red potatoes

1/2 c. sliced onions

3 Tbsp. McCormick Beef Stew seasoning packet

1 c. water

  3. Transfer to the Crock Pot. Add vegetables, Beef Stew seasoning and water.
