Is it cold up your way? It's windy and cold here. The cold and snow, I don't mind, but this icy wind is for the birds (penguins). Perfect day for your slow-cooker stew. Do you deliver? Seriously, your stew seasoning looks delicious and the stew wonderful. Did you get the notice from Sari (notes from the barnyard) about the new 100% organic, grass fed beef people (cows, not people) in Wellington? I may try that. I'll keep you posted. In the meantime, I'm lifting your seasoning and slow cooker recipes. Thanks, Lexie!

This is simmering in my slow-cooker as I speak. The house smells delicious. While it's not cold during the day this week in California (70ish), by sundown it gets pretty chilly. I'm new to gf and I really appreciate these recipes that don't require much tweaking so the whole family can enjoy. All I had to do was buy the rice flour. Now to find a great recipe for gf french bread. Too late for today but definitely next time.

Hi Jeri, please report back with a review. Any suggestions for improvement? You are so right about there being a lot of support for GF and special diets online. Elana at was the first blog I started following. She was a fantastic help to me. Working on a recipe for molasses bread … that'd go real nice with this stew : )

I use the Pacific Natural Foods broth for my beef stew, too. I'll have to give your special seasonings a try. Our first real snow yesterday and I'm making a white bean chili in the slow cooker today to keep warm.

This stew was very delicious. It didn't thicken up as much as I wanted it to – maybe I didn't use enough seasoning. I pulled some broth out and thickened it up on the stove with arrowroot and put it back in the crockpot. We all loved it. Thanks Lexie.

Thanks for the comment Jeri! Yes, this is not a super thick stew as I try to keep the flour/grain in this recipe to a minimum. I will add this tip that I use to thicken stew and other soups; remove some of the vegetables that are in the stew (potatoes are ideal) once they are fully cooked. Mash or puree (with some of the cooking liquid) in a food processor or blender. Stir puree into the stew. Voila 🙂

Somehow I missed this stew when you posted it before. It looks totally delicious, Lexie. And it's going to be cold here this weekend. Hubby is trying to talk me into going camping at our mtn property, which normally I love doing, but it will feel like the 30s with the wind chill there during the day tomorrow and in the 20s at night. Yikes! Plus, there's some rain in the forecast and it's my dad's birthday on Sunday. I love the idea of staying home and making this stew. 😉 I'll use venison in ours.
