  • Place the onions, carrots, celery, turnips, tomato paste, beef broth, dried thyme, dried parsley, oregano, and dried bay leaves into a large slow cooker.
  • Add the stew meat in a large bowl and season liberally with salt and pepper. Toss the meat until it is fully coated. Set the meat aside.
  • Over medium heat, heat the olive oil in a skillet.
  • Add the garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds or until fragrant is released.
  • Add the meat and let the beef cook without stirring for a few minutes to allow the meat to brown on one side.
  • Stir and repeat until all sides of the beef pieces are browned.
  • Add the cooked beef to the slow cooker and stir to combine with the vegetables.
  • Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on high for five hours. After five hours, taste the stew and adjust the salt if needed. Garnish with fresh parsley.


  • I recommend peeling the carrots and turnips before dicing. You can peel a turnip like you would a potato.
  • Do not skip browning the meat in a skillet before adding to a slow cooker as it adds a ton of flavour to the dish.
  • When browning the meat, you may have to do so in batches to avoid overcrowding the pot.
  • To store: Store leftover stew in the fridge for up to 4 days in an airtight container. 
  • To reheat: You can reheat the stew in the microwave or on the stovetop. 
  • To freeze: Freeze leftover stew in a freezer-safe container once its cooled for up to 3 months.
