Moms Fabulous Slow Cooker Stew
Enjoy this Moms Fabulous Slow Cooker Stew recipe, and compare it to the stew that your own mom might make for you! It is always fun to try new recipes, and to see what I different about them, and what you like best about the original that you might have become accustomed to eating. This version of the Moms Fabulous Slow Cooker Stew recipe comes to you two ways from the site, Oh Sweet Basil, which hosts the recipe for you to access. You can either make the slow cooker stew recipe entirely from scratch, or you can make a quick version that draws on commercial ingredients to help speed up the process for you. Either way, you will produce a good stew, but a stew that is made entirely from scratch is always chock full of extra goodness.
The recipe that is made from scratch includes some super ingredients. Potatoes are always a big part of most standard stew recipes and that is also the case here. Potatoes are loaded with vitamins and minerals such as potassium and vitamin C. In addition, when you keep the skin on the potatoes, you add a lot of fiber to the recipe, a component of our daily diet that many of us often miss out on. As well, potatoes are very filling, especially for their low calorie count.
So add plenty of them, and keep the skins on! The recipe that is made from scratch also includes other great ingredients. One to especially note is celery, a veggie that we often overlook. Celery holds lots of fiber, but it is also loaded with antioxidants, too. Antioxidants help protect the cells and keep them robust and healthy from free radicals that attempt to destroy them. There are at least 12 known anti-oxidants in celery. Celery also contains vitamin K, potassium, magnesium and phosphorous, so think celery when you are thinking about a snack. The good fiber content will also help to fill you up.
This recipe also contains lots of great veggies such as mushrooms and carrots, to name just a few. There is also plenty of dairy in the recipe that you make from scratch. That means lots of protein as well as more minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Adding in the cream to this recipe also increases the fat content, so you may want to make the servings a bit smaller as a result. You may actually want to eat less, too, of course, since fat is what fills us up at a meal. This is an easy dish to make, and offers two ways that you can approach the recipe. Let the family decide which one they like best.
