Another delicious meal that simmered all day long in the crock pot. I wanted to change up my tried and true beef stew recipe a tad, so for this batch, instead of using my regular 2 yellow onions, I used a jar of my home canned Caramelized Onion Jam. The recipe is found here.
1 1/2 lbs. lean beef tips
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 T. oil
4 cups beef stock
8 oz. Caramelized Onion Jam
1 bay leaf
3 carrots, peeled and chopped
3 ribs celery, trimmed and chopped
1 yellow onion, halved lengthwise and then thinly sliced
3 Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and chopped
3 T. Worcestershire Sauce
1 t. seasoned salt
1 cup frozen green peas, thawed
Salt and pepper the beef tips.
In a large skillet, over high heat, add oil. When the oil shimmers, add the beef tips, dividing into batches. Let the beef tips sear and when browned, add that batch to the crock pot. Continue until all beef tips are seared.
Add the beef stock and next 8 ingredients. Stir well to combine.
Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours. Add peas during last hour of cooking time.
Taste and adjust seasonings if needed. Remove bay leaf before serving.
