The Anti-Chicken Fingers Movement ~ Homemade Beef Stew with Rice

Well, the weather (until Saturday) this week had been rainy and gloomy, so I decided to buy some stew meat to throw in the crockpot for some homemade beef and rice stew.  It turned out delicious, substituting rice for potatoes really does something for this soup.  The leftovers are better, as the rice has soaked up all the juices.  My little boy lapped up every bite...

1-pd of beef stew meat (already cut up)
1-package of frozen carrots, peas and green beans (or fresh)
2-cups uncooked (4 servings cooked) brown rice
3- Celery sticks cut up
6-Cups of Beef Broth
Garlic powder, salt & pepper to taste

Pour beef broth into crockpot and turn on to low heat.
Add beef, frozen veggies, celery sticks, and garlic powder, salt & pepper to taste.  Leave for 6-8 hours on low heat, then cook rice according to directions.  Add to stew, stir, and serve with your choice of bread and/or salad.  Happy eating friends! ~Trina
