Slow cooker beef stew makes a hearty, easy dinner any night of the week. This beef stew gets its slightly spicy and sweet flavor from hoisin sauce.

I made this exactly as the recipe said, and it was much too sweet for me and my family. I think it would be pretty good to take the sweet potatoes and parsnips out and just use carrots.
I made this for co-workers as we work midnights. Everyone loved the tase of it and liked that it wasn't filled with tomatoes. I plan on making it again, but this time without the parsnips. I didn't particularly like the flavor of them, but if that's what you like, put them in. I put extra meat in the stew as well, 3/4 pound isn't much, but the stew is wonderful.
Everyone loved this! I didn't have parsnips so I added carrots. This is a sweet type of stew and the carrots might have added to that. I may reduce the hoisin sauce if I use carrots again. But as it was everyone wanted seconds!
I was a little unsure about this recipe, but after trying it, I'm a believer! Delicious! Since I didn't have sweet potatoes or parsnips, I just used regular potatoes and carrots. The consistency was just right- not too soupy or too thick. I was hoping for leftovers, but there were none to be had! I will definitely make this one again.
This is the best stew I've ever made! The only change I made was to add a couple tbsps of tomato paste to thicken it up.
This stew is a great twist on the boring old beef/potato/carrot combination. It's not so crazy that you won't be able to get your family to eat it, but it's a great way to get some variety in your diet with the parsnips and other vegetables. It's easy and delicious - it has become my favorite beef stew recipe.

This past weekend was glorious! We had perfect weather for catching up on our yard work. We spent all of Saturday afternoon weeding and tending to our overgrown “problem” areas. Ryan’s mom, Becky, was even so kind as to come over and play with our toddler so that he could be outside, too – without getting too close to the clipping shears and other dangerous tools.
