Slow Cooker Beef and Sweet Potato Stew

April 4, 2016Teresa

Gluten Free Living – 2016

Slow Cooker Beef and Sweet Potato Stew is a wonderful, clean-eating soup your family is sure to enjoy. It’s healthy, low calorie, gluten free and dairy free, yet so easy to make because you toss everything into your slow cooker!

It’s filled with all kinds of veggies (including my favorite: sweet potatoes). I seasoned it with some of my favorite seasonings like marjoram. It’s succulent and delicious comfort food that’s great for any occasion. It’s also a terrific way to use up leftover veggies if you have them. Just make sure you add them the last half hour and not at the beginning if they’re already cooked.

I have a friend whom I met while we both lived in Massachusetts. We met at church there and our children were about the same age. We moved to Texas in 1996 and they followed in 2000. For the next eight or nine years we prayed together weekly about everything from politics to family and everything in between. After I started seminary in 2008, my time was limited, then we moved farther south and got involved in a church plant so we stopped meeting for several years.

In 2015 she was diagnosed with cancer and also moved up to north Plano, which is now about an hour’s drive away. We still try to meet to talk and pray about once a month. When we do we have lunch together. Because of the cancer and radiation treatments, she is on a very restricted diet. No dairy, no legumes (except green beans), no white potatoes, no mushrooms. Nor any kind of condiment or processed food that has preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, sugar or unhealthy oils.

I whipped up this quick and easy stew (minus my favorite mushrooms) for our lunch in February. It was a huge hit. This stuff is savory and delicious. My friend raved and raved over how good it tasted. It is made with clean eating ingredients that are easy to find and add wonderful flavor.

The leeks, garlic and onions supplement the seasonings and make this stew quite mouthwatering. I put most of the stuff in the crockpot and cooked them for a couple of hours. Then I added the veggies that wouldn’t take as long to cook and cooked them through about an hour.

I hope you enjoy making this delicious soup in your crockpot sometime soon. Slow Cooker Beef and Sweet Potato Stew truly delights the taste buds. It’s also hearty, filling and infinitely satisfying! If you are on special diets and would like me to try to make something that fits your dietary needs, please let me know on the comment form at the bottom of this post. I will try to whip up something you and your family can enjoy. Bon Appetit!

I recently remade this recipe (January 2020) for our Friday night care group. The only thing I did differently is remove the gluten free flour that I used as a thickener in the first version. Actually I liked it a lot better that way. We served it with cornbread and everyone loved it. Plus, you just can’t beat a hot bowl of stew on cold, winter nights. Yum.

    This stew looks so yummy! I am always attracted to any recipe with sweet potatoes in it. I am a fan of marjoram, too. Thanks for sharing, Teresa!

      Thank you so much, Shari. It really did turn out wonderfully.Hey, where is your bakery shop in Phoenix? We will be there for a couple of days next week and I would love to stop by and see you.

        I hope I am not to late to connect with you in Phoenix! I did not ever have a shop, but just an online bakery. That has taken a backseat right now as we are building a house, too. It just seemed impossible to do both. But I would love to meet up with you for coffee or tea if you have time. When will you be here? I hope I didn’t miss it!
