PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE YOUR BEEF STEW COOKING KIT

Here is a great hack!  Prepare all ingredients and store them in the fridge right in the slow cooker insert!  Then, when you’re ready to cook the meal, all you need to do is add the slurry, broth, and beef!

For this recipe, you will dice the carrots and onions.  You will chop the parsley and mince the garlic.  HACK: When you buy a head of garlic, mince all of the cloves at once and then freeze the minced garlic, so you always have it on hand!  For more Freezer Hacks to make meal prep easier, download this FREE FREEZER HACK SHEET!

Then measure out the dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaf, salt, and pepper.  Finally, measure the dried thyme into the palm of your hand and crush it with your fingers, then add it to the container as well.

Cook on Low for 8 or 10 hours, depending on your schedule.

When you are ready to eat, cook the rice noodles according to package instructions.  Of course, you can use other types of noodles, such as Egg Noodles, but I was trying to keep this gluten free.

Serve the stew over the noodles and garnish with parsley. Enjoy!
