Gravy Meat Stew

There are a lot of things that we eat in Iowa. Yet the very main thing we most eat is meat & potatoes.


  • 1 lb of stew meat
  • 1 T garlic
  • 3-4 potato’s
  • 2 large carrots
  • 1 Onion
  • Brown gravy packet
  • 2 cups of water
  • Seasonings (oregano, salt, pepper)

*remember low and slow is the way to go *


  1. Chop up veggies and put them in the crock pot. Little bite size pieces would be best.
  2. Sear the meat in oil & garlic till meat is brown on the outside. This shouldn’t take more than a couple minutes
  3. Stick the meat into the crock pot.
  4. Add two cups of water & season to your liking. I always add oregano, rosemary, fresh thyme from the garden , salt and pepper.
  5. Allow to cook for 6-8 hours on low.
  6. When the meat easily tears apart, add in the gravy packet for more flavor
  7. You’re done!

Crock pot meals are so under appreciated because you get quality meals out of doing hardly any work. During winter I won’t take it off my counter because we use it for chili, stew, roasts, and many other things!
