Slow Cooker Recipe : Traditional Beef Stew

My husband has been complaining that I rarely experiment new recipes for the family to try since I returned to the workforce. That was indeed a challenge thrown to me as it is his indirect way of telling me that they are bored with the repeating dinners that I had prepared in advance to them.

So it is back to the old recipe book to check out any new recipes that I could adapt and conveniently prepared with the trusty and realiable ‘friend’, Slow Cooker. So it is time to check out Traditional Beef Stew adaption…. And as a result, the family are very happy with the meal. Too happy to the extend, they forgot to take the photos of the cooked dish and they did not even left me any to try…… 😢😰Hmmm…. guess I just need to repeat this dish soon and ensure that I get to try it….😉
