The Best Beef Stew in the Crockpot

Crockpot Beef Stew #Cookingwithkids

Cooking with my daughter Julia is one of my favorite things to do. 

She loves helping! I have been slacking on my meal planning lately, but when I am on top of it, she is right there by my side eager to help.

Cooking when it’s easy and tasty is something I always strive to do. This Beef Stew is the best because you just dump the ingredients into the crockpot and later you have a delicious dinner… AND the best part? No huge mess to clean up! 😉
