Slow cooker beef stew with caramelized onions. This beef stew with caramelized onions is a meal in one! Cook for 3 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low. Perfect for busy weeknights and lazy weekends alike.

To be honest with you, this recipe was one of my older sister’s favorite dishes. The meat is cooked until tender and juicy and the sweet taste of caramelized onion complements the smoky flavor of beef beautifully. The vegetables in this dish are also cooked until they are tender (but not overcooked), which means that they will retain their flavor as well as their nutrients.

I typically make this dish on the weekends when I have more time to cook because it takes at least six hours to cook in the slow cooker. But if you’re looking for something easier, you can always use a pressure cooker or make it on the stovetop.

What are the benefits of making a beef stew in a slow cooker?

Slow cookers are popular in the winter because they keep the kitchen warm and make cooking a lot easier. They are great for making soups, stews, casseroles, and all sorts of dishes that need to simmer for hours.

The benefits of using a slow cooker include saving energy by not heating up the entire house with an oven or stovetop. It also helps to maintain flavor and texture in dishes that might otherwise be overcooked or dry if cooked on the stovetop or in the oven.

What should you do with any leftovers from this recipe?

You can store the leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
