Crockpot Beef + Sweet Potato Stew
With the crazy schedules of two working parents, and six kids (mostly teenagers) needing to eat quick, then get right back out the door to their activities, and social life…
They want something satisfying, and tasty to come home to…mom wants something super nutritious, and not too much time-consuming!
#Crockpot meals are my saving grace as a mother throughout the school year.
This savory grass fed beef stew has been a favorite for our family this winter! I hope you love it too!Makes about 6 servings
