Beef and Sweet Potato Stew :: 31 Days of Healthy Freezer Meals

I wasn't quite sure what to think when I first heard of using sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes in stew. I was just starting our healthier eating and weight loss journey so I wanted to stick to my plan. But breaking away from the traditional stew recipe? I wasn't convinced.

One time making this recipe, though, and I was hooked! I don't think I'll make stew any other way now!

Beef and Sweet Potato Stew


1 lb. beef stew meat
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. paprika
2 bay leaves
1 can diced tomatoes
2 large sweet potatoes, cut into 1 inch cubes

8 cups beef broth
1/2 c. red wine


Combine all ingredients EXCEPT the beef broth and red wine into a large freezer bag and freeze!

When ready to eat, thaw and throw into a slow cooker. 
Add the 8 cups of beef broth and 1/2 cup red wine to the slow coker.
Cook for 4-6 on high or 6-8 hours on low.
